Claire-Hermione ‏@missclairabella. There isn’t a good independent place within LS. M&S is good value. Patisserie Valerie - a little posher. Harvey Nics- overpriced.

Mark Bedford ‏@markyb72. My wife recommends @The_Tetley. Haven’t been myself but my wife is never wrong... so she tells me.

Claire-Hermione ‏@missclairabella. Possible that nobody seen market for it with Betty’s up the road. Also serious gems in the Yorkshire Dales.

The Queens ‏@TheQueensQ. Surely @thequeensQ, no?

Mrs Manhorne ‏@mrsmanhorne. Queens Hotel and Browns are both delicious and excellent value (better than Betty in my opinion)

Rachel Nimz Taylor ‏@Mrs_Nimz_Taylor. Not too far from Leeds is an absolute gem! Try @NumberTwentyCas in Castleford! Amazing food, staff trendy decor!

Number Twenty ‏@NumberTwentyCas. @Mrs_Nimz_Taylor. Thank you so much!

Rob Greenland ‏@TheSocBiz. Lovely homemade cakes at @thearchcafe - a social enterprise too - raises money for @AgeUKLeeds #leedsrecommends

The Duncan Leeds ‏@duncanpub. @Mrsathasleeds do excellent teas/coffees etc.

News an afternoon tea restaurant called Creams will be joining the line-up at The Core in Leeds city centre has sparked huge interest among the #leedsrecommends crowd.
