Situated in the heart of Harrogate, Baltzersen’s is a scandinavian inspired cafe where dishes are made using locally sourced Yorkshire ingredients. The calm, light and relaxed interior paired with welcoming staff and the smell of freshly cooked cinnamon buns was enough to get us to stay a while!

A concept dreamt by owner and former army officer Paul Rawlinson, Baltzersen’s came from a passion for Norwegian food that stems from his grandma’s cooking. Dishes on the menu include open rye bread sandwiches, lapskaus (which is a lentil and root vegetable Norwegian stew), and one of our favourites, avocado on toast with roasted tomatoes, shredded fennel, garlic aioli and lingonberry ketchup.
Grilled halloumi open sandwich with beetroot, apple and radish relish and pea shoots
Gluten free waffles with salted caramel and whipped vanilla cream.
The range of gluten free and vegetarian choices is to be commended; it’s often hard to find cafe’s that create interesting flavorsom vegetarian dishes. This is one nordic cafe we will certainly be going back too!
