Coffee and cake

This coffee shop is situated in a very nice part of Broadstairs just before you reach the beach. We called in for a coffee and cake mid afternoon, there are lots of wonderful cakes to choose from, service was quick for the cake, we eventually got served for a coffee and then unfortunately they... read more

Ordered panini, No chicken. No salami. Plastic ham and cheese, completely tasteless. Such a disappointment. The coffee was great though. Wouldn't recommend it overall.

We make a pilgrimage here every few years - the ice cream has always been stunning, and today was no different. And the prices for ice cream specials were good. The Amaretto special was really special, and we were lucky to get a table outside in the sudden burst of good weather. Will be back again next time we're in... More

Beautiful ice cream especially the cherry, strawberry & pieces and English trifle flavours. A proper Italian ice cream parlour - much better than Morelli's - nicer decor, better ice cream and ice cream also cheaper.

I visited Chiappinis this afternoon with my boyfriend. We were both very impressed with the excellent service from the lovely lady who was cleaning/monitoring the tables outside. So much so, that we felt compelled to write a short review mentioning her (something we never do)! The cakes were also delicious and everything was reasonably priced. We would definitely come back.

Didn't like the coffee here (some time ago now) but they have a good range of ice cream with generous portions. Seems to be much better value if you buy a cone rather than a tub.

Great location above Viking Bay. Retro feel down to genuine 1950s/60s interior. I had no problem with the service.

Good coffee and great ice cream - especially the hazelnut. Staff were courteous and friendly. Rounded off a nice Friday afternoon in Broadstairs perfectly.
