You will notice that a lot of Bexhill’s restaurants are traditional Italian family businesses, and Di Paolo’s is probably the one closest to our hearts, and this is due to its teeth-rottingly fabulous gelati. With flavours as dribblingly good as Snickers and their take on Ferraro Rocher, alongside old favourites like Rum & Raisin, Mint Choc Chip and new and seasonal flavours too (Apple Crumble anyone?) these are the town’s best ice creams. Prepare to find yourself drawn into a daily Di Paolo’s gelato ritual.
They’re not just there for ice cream though – Di Paolo’s do a good breakfast fry-up, and at lunch tuck into hearty roasts and pies of the day. It’s lunch the old fashioned way, your local caff serving you up a filling frill-free main and pud to boot. Order at the counter for your informal drop-in, or you can have sit-down table service. Super friendly staff will greet you like you’re long lost friends.
