Lovely location overlooking Broadstairs beach and a great cup of coffee and a good selection of hot and cold food.

I have been visiting this wonderful place with my disabled son for many years now - . Whereas people normally get a cone of the wonderful ice-cream and then wend their merry way I like things to be special for my son. So we have the BIGGEST sundae they have - and two spoons. People walk by and comment on... More

The Gold Standard for ice cream parlours in Broadstairs (and beyond) is Morelli's. Chiappini's tries but simply doesn't hack it. So, I think it more important to assess it in its own right, rather than in comparison with Morelli's. Service is rather confused, as it is at the other branch. The choice here is wider and the place is bigger.... More

The only good thing about this place are the views, Over priced, mediocre coffee. Shame as the view over broadstairs is beautiful from this cafe.

Beautiful view but cappuccino was like dishwater - milky and tasteless. Coffee cake was very plain with a sickly gooey topping. This place has really gone downhill.

We went to chiappinis today and sat outside at a table overlooking Viking bay. The service was great, the staff were helpful and served with a smile. It was alot cheaper and tastier than morellis ( another notable icecream shop down the road) which we visited yesterday. The icecream flavours were great and very reasonably priced. We will definitely be... More

Food and drink were okay but the owner stands there watching his staff and talks to them like they are dirt, made me feel uncomfortable.

This is the WORST cup of coffee I have ever had, the cheese cake tasted like it was made from a cheap packet, and the ice cream my daughter ordered she did not even eat. We could not even drink the coffee it was just that bad we just walked out it was so disappointing because it look so nice... More

We are a local family who until we had our son were regulars here often enjoying a coffee and the views. Imagine our disappointment when we were denied access and turned away because we had a buggy. Since this occasion I have learnt we are not the only family and apparently it is well known they don't allow buggys, prams,... More
