Terrific selection of ice cream made on the premises. but a little pricey. The cafe is part of the Bandstand arena on the Seafron, so you can sit outside and take in the various shows and performances that they hold during the summer and is quite atmospheric. The cafe has agood seating area inside and also a sort of visitor information board but the best information for whats on I found is http://bayguide.co.uk/wp/index.php/herne-bay-overvie/

Herne Bay Town seems to be becoming more and more trendy with some good vdis on you tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPPLhroIJ90
