I spotted a very large queue at Betty's Tea Rooms in York. This Harrogate based company is famous for its confections.

You've made the place very inviting, Curly :)

@BiLL: Something to do with warm glowing highlights surrounded by darker tones?

Worth trying the cookies!!! (I went once inside a Tea Room at Windsor....the outside of the shop was very nice, the inside....not that impressive.)Quaint...but expensive!

@Japanalia: I'm sure you would not be disappointed by Betty's.

Looks like a quaint spot to stop for tea!

Well seen 'n shot ... the line speaks loudly of their reputation.

@Judy aka L@dybug: Ah yes the line......another Americanisation that managed to confuse me :-)

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Great capture of this storefront whose warm-colored interior contrasts nicely with the cool-colored exterior!

@Steven: Yep, I was hoping that the glow of the warmer highlights might attract some attention.

Elaine Hancock from Rockville, United States

A wonderful street scene! It looks like such a nice place. I can see why there is a line. A big menu too!

@Elaine Hancock: The young staff look quite quaint in their Edwardian styled uniforms too.
