Nice location and view of seafront, service could have been better

My husband's panini was very tasty, although the cafe had run out of a few things we originally wanted. The staff seemed a little disorganised and didn't communicate with each other. The cafe wasn't that busy, but I was quite sharply asked at the till for an order ticket I had not been given... read more

We spent our day on the beach here on Saturday 11th July. It was a beautiful hot day and we decided to go for coffee and ice creams. We were lucky to grab a vacant table outside. I have to agree with the comments on here about staff being totally detached to their customers. It is truly a case of... More

Sitting on the promenade at one of their tables overlooking the harbour in the sunshine has to be one of the best views in Kent The biggest surprise was the lack of customers. My wife and I have used this coffee lounge since the 1960's but it always seems to be number two in the town. Food and coffee excellent... More

Excellent large cafe for good value cakes, drinks and snacks, conveniently located adjacent to the sea front on the main route from the Dickens Museum to Bleak House. Note that the sea view is limited, but the Venetian themed mural on the walls, whilst apparently slightly random, is nice enough.

Went in for a coffee and something to eat, plenty of staff who all ignored me, the final straw was the rude arrogant owner, needless to say i walked out. Definitely don't go in to this place they do not deserve to have any business.

Beautiful day, enjoying the sun and a walk along the prom in Broadstairs, Kent so decided an Ice Cream was in order - biggest mistake of the day ! Was feeling rather jovial until we entered Chiappinis, and being greeted by an oriental waitress with an attitude problem as big as Everest. Firstly being told 'ITS NOT TABLE SERVICE' which... More

We were mistaken in thinking that this was Morrelli's. At mid afternoon, there was only a few ice creams left to choose from as the staff said they had been busy all day. They sold cakes too, I asked the lady what they were and in a very disengaged tone she told me, too fast for me to catch however... More

Lovely position with fantastic views but everything is overpriced and the guy who owns/runs it is always as miserable as sin and unfriendly!

We wife and I have been visiting Chiappinis since we were teenagers and the now owner Maurice was younger too. We love the service and experience and would recommend a visit if visiting the town . They serve snacks and ice creams.
