This Italian coffee bar is the same as when I was a child 50 years ago. That is a good thing! Great service, Italian ice cream, fabulous coffee and an amazing atmosphere. The decor is 60s and this is a very poular establishment so get there early to be assured a seat.It is extremely popular and retro experience!

Love this place with all it's charm - and memories of childhood holidays. Always the same standard- always the same good service. Sometimes a little disappointed when the chocolate Mr Whippy isn't working :( But otherwise A1.

A friend visited Morellis as a child ( 1970's) and recommended we visit. It was worth it! Ice cream is out of this world as is the coffee. The decor is very retro if a little faded. It does not take away from the charm & beauty of this place. If you visit Broadstairs then you should try Morelli's!

Nicely decorated modern surroundings in great position. Food OK for what it was but nothing special. Good atmosphere as a couple of Christmas parties.

Never changes. Takes me back to the 60's. I feel it could do with a make up as there are still the old plastic and artificial flowers all around the café. But never lets us down.

This was recommended by a friend. Tried it and loved it! The icecream was delicious all sorts of flavors to tempt everyone and the cafe was outstandingly retro. It was buzzing when we went. Lots of young staff serving but still had good service. If in Broadstairs do try it!

Just like stepping into a 30's movie set, this is a real period treat. Coffee served in glasses held by silver holders a visual treat even before you taste it. Ice cream so good that its earned a place in Harrods food hall (but the prices are a lot cheaper in the Broadstairs one). The parlour over looks the gardens... More

A great ice cream parlour that takes you back to the 1950's. Superb ice cream, a great selection of flavours. If you want to indulge yourself try the Sundae!

So long as you like ice cream this should float your boat. Plenty of flavours, choice of sundaes, lots of toppings. The decor is very mid twentieth century and delightful because of it. When we visited staff were a bit hard of thinking but perhaps we caught them at a bad moment. Coffee was served in beautiful glasses but even... More
