Morelli's is my only reason for going to Broadstairs. Their sundaes are amazing, they may be on the dear side but they are well worth the money for the occasional treat. They look absolutely stunning...

You just can't not go to Morelli's if you are in Broadstairs, Kent. This is what all those people must have thought who were joining the long queue for coffees, cakes, hot chocolate and many more delicious things on a cold and windy winter's day.

We had the most amazing ice cream sundaes, so many flavours it was hard to choose. Beautifully presented in large glasses with all the trimmings, very glamorous. It was a cold windy day but Morelli's was such an inviting place, fun and dog friendly.

The ice cream here is above average but not excellent. The staff always look at you as if you're wasting their time and it's definitely overpriced. However other than that the seating area is nice and so is the ice cream.

No trip to Broadstairs is complete without a good hour spent in Morelli's. I hope Maggie Smith felt the same when she filmed her scene here in The Lady in the Van. I last visited a couple of days ago, and felt I needed something savoury before embarking upon the ice creams. Although there was not much savoury food on... More

No visit to Broadstairs is complete without a visit to Morellis. Childhood memories are revived here. Great range of ice creams to eat in the cafe of stroll down to the beach with.

Morelli's has been on Broadstairs seafront for many years . It produces the most creamy, yummy ice cream imaginable. Having started in Italy 100 years ago they have won many awards I can never visit the town without visiting, either to have a lovely sugar cone ice to walk along the seafront with or maybe even sit inside and have...
