Description: We are a 1950s all american ice cream parlour selling top grade ices and award winning dishes, award winning fairtrade coffee and lovely hotdogs at reasonable prices. We are not the cheapest but if you want quality then we are number 1. A family owned business we were the first of its kind in the North East and are still the peoples choice for this type of thing. Queues can be long at peak times (1-5 on weekends and school holidays) so please come prepared. off peak times are 10am until 1pm where you may not need queue of queue for less.

“Don't wait for the sunshine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

So many tastes, so little time. Lickety Split provides the widest range of ice creams, sundaes, drinks that I know of. It's probably the best value too. They're too good to save for summertime. What better place to spend a frozen afternoon on the coast than in Lickety Split.

“Ice scream with joy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Love the choice in this place, always good for a perfect ice cream sit in or take out, would recommend having a daily special, always comes up trump. A little extra cost than normal shops, but sill a bargain if you chose wisely.

“Lovely but way way too busy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Easily the most popular attraction in Seaham, but queues out the door and what appears to be a chaotic system in place makes it difficult to justify the visit. During summer months, I have stood for over an hour just for a few cornets. Shame, as it is a lovely US themed diner style, very unusual and with an amazing menu. Not sure I want the hassle of going though.

Hi Thanks for your feedback,
You are correct in stating it is very busy during the summer esxpecially during school holidays, we recently put something on our facebook advising of the best times to visit to beat the queues.
Last week we tried something different with the queues and this apears to be working. However you need to understand that we a very popular, and for good reason.
