Welcome to Mrs Smith’s
"Harrogate's hidden gem", we are a family run, family friendly café providing a welcoming space for you and your family or friends to enjoy delicious, local, fresh and healthy food and drinks.
We designed our café with families in mind, with our fabulous toy area, games menu, high chairs and baby changing facilities. Most importantly our beautiful kid's menu offers home cooked fayre you just don't find anywhere else. Add in the often overlooked kid friendly cutlery, crockery and cups and a lovely warm welcome to all your little people! But that doesn’t mean Mrs Smith's is just for kids! Our homemade menu, freshly baked, indulgent cakes, fresh ground coffees and friendly home from home atmosphere makes Mrs Smith's the perfect place for everyone to relax, unwind and enjoy.
We pride ourselves on using local, independent suppliers... We all know Yorkshire is God's county and we are blessed with sensational quality ingredients allowing us to proudly 'support local'. Our sausage and bacon come from Harrogate's own Kendall’s Butchers, our free range eggs are delivered weekly from Ian Taylor at Burton Leonard, our loaves of bread are baked daily in house. Just around the corner; Avenue Bakery supply our soft baps and teacakes and our milk is organic direct from the farm at nearby Acorn Dairies. North Yorkshire's Rounton Coffee Roasters supply our coffee beans, decaf coffee, Kokoa Collection real hot chocolate and all of our varieties of Storm Tea and we have fresh produce delivered 3 times per week from Bilton's Roots and Fruits Greengrocers.
We love food at Mrs Smith's and top quality, well prepared dishes are at the heart of everything we do. We use the best produce and our food is always made fresh and to order. We love providing our fabulous food for you to take away as well as eat in but please be aware that everything is made fresh and there may be a short wait at busy times. If you're short on time for your take away order please phone ahead and we can give you a pick up time.
Our cakes are baked fresh on the premises by our fantastic baker Hajnalka. We always have at least one fresh bake that is both dairy and gluten free. We can take orders for special occasion cakes or themed cupcakes/biscuits and can also offer a fantastic afternoon tea for advance bookings. We can even theme your afternoon tea if you would like! I you want to treat a loved one to a wizard, chocolate or unicorn afternoon tea... Or any theme you can think of, we're your place!
Need it gluten free, dairy free, veggie or vegan? Also, not a problem!
We have some super healthy options and received a gold award from NYCC Healthy Eating Scheme. We provide great choices for those who are following a Slimming Plan to allow them to eat out ‘on plan’, we've even got healthier options of some of our more indulgent favourites such as our slimming friendly full English and low fat Coronation chicken.
Not only are we an amazing café, we also regularly hold special events and activities for kids and adults alike and get involved with other fabulous local businesses to provide lots of exciting treats. We hold a monthly games night, regular pottery painting, craft workshops, school holiday sessions, Christmas events and our spectacular New Year's Eve family dinner. All of our events are advertised on Facebook and on the What's On page or ask us what's in the pipeline.
We provide magical themed children’s parties or private hire for family get togethers. We have lots of our own fantastic ideas and themes for events but can tailor and plan activities and food around your preferences - the only limitation is your imagination! We’re the perfect place for all generations to get together, ask us about private hire for a family event where the kids can play and the adults can relax and enjoy a menu tailor made to your requirements.
We’ve been overwhelmed by the support of the local community since we opened in March 2017. We love our loyal regulars from 0 years to over 90 years old and love to meet new customers each day too. We were thrilled to win ‘Newcomer of the Year’ at the 2017 Harrogate Mumbler Awards and pick up the Highly Commended Award in the ‘Eating out with the Kids’ category! We were runner up in the Harrogate Advertiser’s Café of the Year Competition in our first year too and are so grateful to all of our customers for voting for us. We are a small team and we work extremely hard to meet the needs of our customers, just get in touch with any feedback or requests, we’d love to hear from you.
