Right in the heart of York, you'll find St Helen's Square and our York branch of Betty's.

In 1936 the founder of Betty's, Frederick Belmont, travelled on the maiden voyage of the Queen Mary. He was so enthralled by the splendour of the ship that he commissioned the Queen Mary's designers and craftsmen to turn a dilapidated furniture store into his most sophisticated branch yet – an elegant café in the land-locked location of St Helen's Square. Today, as you sit in Betty's surrounded by huge curved windows, elegant wood panelling and ornate mirrors, you can almost imagine yourself aboard a luxury liner.

Open every day from 9am to 9pm, except on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.
