Don’t be fooled by Broadstairs diminutive size, this seaside town in Kent boasts a load of great restaurants and places to eat.
From traditional fish and chips and fresh seafood dishes to ice cream and boba tea. There’s something for everyone.
And you can walk off the food by visiting all the great gift shops afterwards too. Or have a lie down on the sandy beach (yes, one of a handful of sandy beaches in Kent).
Flotsam and Jetsam
Fish and chips taste better from a cone. There’s also other seaside favourites such as soft shell crab, lobster and prawns too. For vegans and vegetarians, there are deep fried vegetables too.
Flotsam and Jetsam are just a stones throw away from the beach too.
Best checking their Instagram page for the latest dishes on offer.
Located on the pier, make sure you book ahead as the Jetty gets busy pretty quickly. You could always order a takeaway if you forget and it’s fully booked.
The Jetty menu has a great mix of seafood specialities like freshly steamed mussels, scampi and fishcakes to general crowd pleasers like burgers, steaks and butternut squash ravioli.
Whether you sit in or outside, you have an amazing view of the sea too.
Wyatt and Jones
Located next to Flotsam and Jetsam, Wyatt and Jones specialise in small individual plates.
Expect oysters, prawns, eels and mackerel from the Wyatt and Jones menu. There are several vegan and vegetarian dishes on offer too.
No trip to the seaside would be complete without an ice cream cone in hand. Morello’s have been serving the creamiest of ice creams for almost 100 years. There are a ton of flavours to choose from.
Morelli’s is one of my favourite ice cream parlours in Kent. I recommend sitting inside and ordering one of their mammoth, Instagrammable sundaes too
Pork & Co
There aren’t a ton of boba tea shops in Kent, so I’m glad BeMe Tea exists.
There’s a flavour for all tastes. I love the creme brulee latte. If boba tea doesn’t hit your dessert spot, BeMe Tea also serve waffles.
