York, Yorkshire, England: Oop Oop A Doop, Betty's ... Boo!

Bettys Cafe Tea Rooms - York
6-8 St. Helens Square
York YO1 8QP England
+44 800 456 1919
Prices: €€€
A trip to Betty's is, apparently, a MUST DO while in York and I am not quite sure why. My wife had her heart set on it, so I could not disappoint.
You have to queue up out front in the rain for up to an hour for a table, then, once seated, pay an exorbitant amount of money for mediocre pastries, meals, and drinks ... BOHICA!
We were not very hungry, so we went the Betty's-light route. I had a Gooey Rascal Scone (€6.50) and a cafetière of the house coffee (€6.25) and my wife had the Fat Rascal Scone (€6.25) and a pot of the house blend tea (€4.85).
The coffee and tea were okay, but the scones, although rather big, were hard as rocks without much flavor. We could barely cut the scones with a knife without hard chips of a scone flying off of the plate but, fortunately, nobody was injured.

Their ¨Festive Afternoon Tea¨includes a small selection of very small sandwiches (one-quarter of a sandwich), a cranberry & orange scone with strawberry preserves and clotted cream, a miniature selection of miniature cakes, and a pot of tea, all for just £30
Sandwiches range from £16 to £20. I saw a Christmas Club Sandwich (£17.95) and a quiche at the next table, both falling into that price range, and that is about all you get -  a meager club sandwich (I have seen larger, more appetizing examples at an International House of Pancakes) and a tiny quiche with a miniature salad.

I am not easily impressed and I was not after we visited Betty's. If you have a wad of cash you need to part with or want to impress your friends with photos of you eating miniature, overpriced food, then have at it folks ... OOH-RAH!
