They have the best of locations with doors to the old town and the sea front.

The variety of ice creams is fantastic and the coffee is also very good. The service is great - very friendly and helpful. The owner is very friendly and always willing to talk to customers.

We visit every time we are in Hastings and often more than once in the same day!

The ice cream here is awesome me and my wife go here when ever were in the mood for something a bit nicer than your ordinary 99 with a flake! The flavours are really nice, my wife is just waiting or the day when she goes in and you've got pistachio as she always seems to either miss it or you don't do that flavour as its her favourite!

came across Di Polas by chance on Tuesday a beautifull day in Hastings. Had a coffee which was very good and checked out the ice creams which looked yummy . was the end of our day so did not treat ourselves saving that delight for next visit although the owner was more than happy for us to sample any flavours so we did try the sorbets I tried lychee and rose which was heaven. The owner was a very special guy who loves what he does and you feel his joy in his place a great spot opposite the sea. will be a regular from now on. Was great watching the joy on childrens faces as they came in and the adults too. Happy Anniversary to the owner and his wife !!! vent anni x ciao

I have often wondered why there are so few good gelaterias in the UK. Well at last there is one nice and close to home. Popped in a few days ago to sample their Pistachio ice cream, delicious. Had to add a scoop of nutella ice cream as well, heavenly!
A super cleanly and wholesome ice cream parlour offering good coffee etc making the icecreams on site.

The weather is freezing, but we are at the seaside so we are having ice creams! Friends said about a great place in Hastings last Summer and a quick look on trip advisor to remember what it was called and we treated ourselves.
The ice creams are 1.80 for a single scoop and 2.80 for a two scoop. Coffees are a reasonable price as well. Inside its cleaned and bright if a little small. Staff are friendly and helpful.
The ice creams are softer than the normal scoop ice cream, almost as soft as mr whippy. The flavours are good, our recommendation is a scoop of cream egg and a scoop of cookie.
If in the East end of Hastings and fancy an ice cream, hunt this place out. You'll get more than an ice cream, you'll get a place to tell friends about.
