How nice to find an ice cream parlour which provides plenty of outdoor seating as well - and what views! Looking out over Viking Bay who could ask for more?

Visited on July 6 2016. Grumpy service from the old man behind cake counter who clearly needs lessons as to what good customer service is. No changing facilities for our 4 month old granddaughter plus second rate coffees. Not a pleasant experience.

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.

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 let themselves down because no one...
