What can I say about Morelli's. It's the classic! Gorgeous Italian ice-cream made daily in the basement by a genuine Italian gelataio( jel-ah-tie-oh) (ice cream maker). The ice cream is gelato(jel-ah-toe) containing more milk than cream, making it freeze at a lower temperature and taste...More

Memories of childhood. The place has not changed its image - soda fountain, juke box, lloyde loom chairs and Formica tables - all in perfect condition. The ice cream flavours are wonderful but the chocolate was made in heaven. They now do waffles and crepes...More

Good selection of great tasting ice cream in a old fashioned parlour. The staff are grumpy and the table layout disorganised but the kids love to visit each time we come to Broadstairs.

I have been many times to this 1950’s leftover ice cream parlor. Each time I very much enjoy the great ice creams and sundaes. The coffee and cakes are also very good. The only fly in the ointment I’m afraid is the really rather exorbitant...More

The best ice creams in town best not for people on diets! A great selection and lovely decor situated on seafront near Dickens Museum

Really nice atmosphere and vintage feel here. Nice location with some views at front. Good coffee served how you like it, and good selection of ice cream. Try the waffle, big enough to share! All patrons well behaved, even those with dogs!
