As it’s the last weekend before Christmas, I thought I’d share some prefect festive tipples from our lovely locals this Christmas. So why not pop in, support your high street and warm up at one of the six cafes and coffee shops in Harrogate:
The Harrogate Tea Rooms, Westminster Arcade
This French Monbana Luxury Hot Chocolate is made with rich cocoa imported from France to create a deliciously velvety and rich hot chocolate. they also do a white version!
Offer: Free cream & marshmallows when you purchase two French Monbana hot chocolates.
No. 35 Cafe, Cheltenham Crescent
Want something different? No. 35 Cafe on Cheltenham Crescent have created a festive Beetroot Latte. Let’s hope they keep this on the menu beyond Christmas.
The Wild Plum, Hookstone Road
This is The Wild Plum home brewed mulled wine with spiced Kombucha. There’s a new flavour made each week and will certainly warm the cockles this Christmas.
Bettys, Harlow Carr
Bettys Hot Chocolate is a year round favourite of mine. Rich Swiss chocolate blended with full fat milk and topped with the silkiest cream and chocolate sprinkles – yum!
No. 43 Brew Bar, St Winifred’s Avenue
What you need in your life is the Gingerbread Caramel Latte form No. 43 Brew Bar. Topped with Gingerbread crumb and whipped cream this surely takes the price for best value for money. The cookies are a great accompaniment to enjoy with the drink and are decorated by Gretel’s of Harrogate.
Price: £2.50 take out, £2.70 drink in.

Fodder has created a Lush Gingerbread Hot Chocolate, topped off with chocolate sprinkles in the shape of a Christmas tree! Modelled by Charlotte from Fodder.

The delicious Harrogate Fog from The Ivy is a little naughty! Consisting of Slingsby’s classic London Dry gin mixed with Baileys, almond milk infused with vanilla, honey and cinnamon – the ideal winter warmer.
