Cafe Rita Harrogate - Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea for two at Cafe Rita, Harrogate
A recent treat came in the shape of Cafe Rita, located on Bower Street, Harrogate. As a group of guests with lofty expectations, my friends and I went with open but suspicious minds. Surely afternoon tea inclusive of a glass of bucks fizz all for 9.95 could not be up to much. But I was reasonably impressed!
The cafe is quite intimate, located near to the bus and train stations and slightly away from the main shopping thoroughfare. They have a very extensive menu, (I was glad I came specifically for the AT) and are open 7 days.

Afternoon Tea cakes, Cafe Rita, Harrogate
Delicate cake stands were grand and imposing, filled to the brim with generous portions of afternoon delights.

Afternoon Tea Sandwiches, Harrogate, Cafe Rita
The selection of sandwiches were standard, but neatly displayed and larger than you average finger sandwich! We asked for some changes for vegetarians or allergies and all our requests were met politely. Tea was also refilled on tap.

Scones in the afternoon, Cafe Rita
The scones were light and delicious and the miniature cakes were certainly adequate for the overall value of our experience. Thanks Rita, whoever you may be!
