9 Delicious Ice Cream Vendors on Brighton Beach

Each of these ice cream vendors will provide you with a good enough ice cream, as your choice will no doubt be dictated by your location, more than your personal preference. In this little article, I will share some of the better options for ice cream that you may be just yards away from when on Brighton Beach. So don’t miss out on a better, tastier, sweeter, fresher gelato and read on.

Joe Delucci’s Gelato Ice Cream

Joe Delucci’s Delucci’s Gelato has a wide variety of flavours to choose from, and all have no artificial colour, flavours or preservatives. Some of these ice creams are even vegan, and there are fat-free options too. So everyone in your group will be satisfied, no matter what their dietary needs are.

The candy cones and cup sizes served here also allow for a wide variety of portion sizes which means that you can get one, two, three, or even four scoops if you dare. Joe’s Deluccis Gelato also offers many other delights on its menu, from Sundaes. Thick Shakes and even a selection of smoothies whisked up with their own fruit gelatos. Overall, the options in this store seem unlimited.

Mama Brum’s Café

you are looking for ice cream directly on the seafront. In that case, Mama Brum’sBrum’s Café is one of the best options available. Mama Brum’sBrum’s ice cream is more to the American style with its Ice cream on big American waffles on sale, as well as the knickerbocker glories in all their delight.

Mama Brum’sBrum’s Café is also very reasonably priced, and the vast flavour selection is sure to leave you incredibly satisfied if not stuffed if overindulged. Their coconut ice cream is my favourite and understandably particularly popular with visitors as well. If coconut is not your thing, though, rest assured that there are plenty of other flavours to choose from. One thing I can guarantee, and that is you will not leave disappointed.

JJ’s Award-Winning Ice Cream – JoJo’s Gelato

JJ's Ice Cream on Brighton Beach

, Jojo’s Gelato offers some of the finest Italian gelatos on Brighton beach. The secret is apparently that their Gelato is mixed using more milk and less cream. It is said that this makes the Gelato extremely smooth (and smoother than their neighbours’ ice cream) and more intense in flavour.

Their slow mixing process also results in less air, which means that the final result is that of profoundly thicker but smooth delightful ice cream that is sure to delight you with every spoonful. The ice cream can also be mixed into milkshakes or served on waffles or crepes for those who would like to have an even more mouth-watering dessert.

The World Famous Pump Room

eccentric café on Brighton Beach offers some of the best ice creams in town. This venue is popular with both locals and visitors. It offers 22 delightful flavours of ice cream, all locally sourced from a family-run dairy farm.

The quality ingredients used to create their ice cream make it one of Brighton beach’s best refreshing and sweet ice cream options. If you are looking for a vibrant venue with a fantastic ice cream selection, then the World Famous Pump Room is the place for you.

The Pumphouse is named the pump room as that is just what its premises used to be. Its located just down from the Grand Hotel, Brighton’s most prestigious hotel both when it opened in 1864 and still today.

But when it was opened each room in the Grand hotel would have not 2 but 3 taps.

1 is for Hot water, 2. Coldwater and the third was seawater. As it was thought back then that both bathing in and even drinking seawater held healing properties. The Pump room was used to pump seawater from the sea up to the Grand hotel. Today it serves delicious ice cream, that’s progress for you.

V360 Plant-based Café

V360 offers delightful vegan and is the only establishment on Brighton beachfront that sells soy-free whippy ice creams, Gelato, and sorbets.

There are many different flavours available, and all of them are totally vegan and carefully prepared. The amazing but sadly V360 is only opened seasonally, which means that you are guaranteed to find a great vegan ice cream right on Brighton Beach in the summer, but left well and truly ‘soyed’ in the down season.
It’s called the V360 and it is right next door to the amazing world’s tallest moving observation tower named the i360. Cause the V is for Vegan.

Gelato Gusto – Down on Brighton Beach

You think of yourself as an ice cream connoisseur, visiting Gelato Gusto on Brighton beach is a must. The chefs working in this shop have their supply of fresh milk and cream delivered daily to ensure always the freshness of the ingredients.

Over the years this talented establishment has created over 200 amazing flavours of tasty ice creams. So it is safe to say that you are sure to find a flavour you love. My favourite is the gluten-free salted caramel in a cone. Mmm So good!

They also offer vegan and dairy-free Gelato for those with specific dietary needs, making this the perfect ice cream no matter your palette of dietary needs.

The Meeting Place Café

Meeting Place Café offers 24 flavours of Carte D’or Scoop Ice Cream at only £1 a scoop if I saw that right when I went there for coffee last.

They also serve Whippy Ice Cream so to please all customers as much as they can.
There isn’t much they don’t do here and their attention is on providing to the masses as opposed to delighting the taste buds of the few.

But by taking this approach they delight the masses with their wide menu selection and central location and always-open attitude. Locals love the Meeting Place café for its simplicity and its efforts

Marocco’s Ice Cream in Brighton

is an Italian restaurant further west that the hustle and bustle of touristy Brighton beach but still very much on Brighton seafront. Marocco’s has found incredible popularity in the last few years not only for its Italian-style seafood but also for its Italian gelato. Their ice cream is indeed lush and delicious, but lick quick as in my opinion (and only my opinion) their ice cream melts too quickly.

You have a choice of how your ice cream is served here. You can have it in a tub, or an Italian hand-rolled cone or in a Mr whippy cone if you so wish (you philistine).

This restaurant can be pretty busy, all year round you can see ques that stem from the ice cream fridge at the front leading all along the pavement, and sometimes across the road.
But whether you are a quick licker or not, Marocco’s offers a great service and tasty Ice cream

Lex’s Cafe

Lex’s Café is known for its lovely staff, affordable prices and quick-served and tasty food. This combination has made it particularly popular with visitors and passersby alike who are always amazed when they try the excellent ice cream choices that this place offers.

Located in Hove, this cafe may be a bit further out when compared to other shops on this list. However, if you are in this area of Hove and if you are walking along Brighton beachfront you will at some point, then Lex’s Cafe is a great chance to grab a high-quality ice cream served

So, as you can see, when it comes to high-quality ice cream, Brighton Beach has many amazing places where you can get a top-quality bit of silky smooth Ice cream.

So, when you are next boiling on the scorching hot beach at Brighton, and see a Mr whippy standing in front of you, remember the odds are you could very well be just moments away from a gelato heavenly experience. (No affebce to Mr Whippy of course)
