Been to Morelli's the last two times I've visited Broadstairs and it has, by far, the most delicious ice cream I have ever tasted! My favourite is the Nutella one - a must try 😋

This is often the end of day highlight when we visit Broadstairs for the day. To start it was packed, but ok it's popular, however there was absolutely no order to the queue and no guidance at all from the staff. We eventually got served and I have to say the portion sizes have got very very small! I ordered... More

I had been into their branch in Portobello (London) last year but had forgotten they were based here so was pleased to be able to try their ice cream again. We came in a couple of times for ice cream and coffee. This place is over 100 years old and decorated in a 1950's style. It is light and bright... More

I've been visiting Morelli's since childhood, but just recently visited. I was really pleased that the original fittings and furniture are still there; it adds to the quaint element. Fantastic views. Food is very very good. Service is always excellent. I can't recommend this place enough. It gets very busy in the summer, so be prepared to queue.

We had Eton Mess and scope of dulce de leche a coconut ice cream. Eton mess was very nice. Dulce de leche was bad toffee. Coconut was ok. Service was very labour intensive. There was ten members of staff. With that numbers there was still a queue for the ice cream. Not because there were many people either. They had... More

We stopped at morellis for a coffee. The staff were making up ice cream sundaes for the new menu and asked us if we would like to try one on the house. We didn't really fancy eating ice cream mid morning as we had planned to eat lunch out. We sat down with our coffees and couldn't resist a try.... More

Loved visiting this ice cream / coffee parlour in broadstairs. Ice cream was very good but the real treat is the building itself - like stepping back in time

Morelli's is an institution – and rightly so! Right by the beach, the huge range of ice cream sundaes, cones, glasses and pots are a real treat for the kids, and the original 50s decor etc is wonderful. Coffee great for adults too...

Morrlli's is like a trip down memory lane or if you're young how seasides in England were during their golden era. Gordy plastic and in your face purple with even a little shell fountain but the reason it's still there is it's very good well made gelato in adult and children friendly flavours with every topping known to man and...
