Description
Baltzersen's is a Scandinavian inspired cafe and bakery based in the centre of Harrogate. We bake all of our own cakes and pastries from scratch with cinnamon buns being our most famous bakery product. We serve breakfast, brunch and lunch with our traditional waffles being a particularly popular choice all day and for an afternoon tea. We brew coffee using our bespoke blend from North Star Roast (Leeds) on espresso and single origin filter coffee from Maude (Leeds) on blue brew. Teas are supplied by The Tea Experience based in Doncaster. Our milk is from award winning organic dairy farm Acorn Dairy. We are child friendly, offer free fibre WiFi, free chilled filtered still or sparkling water and you are welcome to bring your dog too. We hope to see you soon. Regards Paul and the Baltzersen's team.
