Birchington Ice Cream Parlour & Patisserie

Birchington Ice Cream Parlour & Patisserie, 11-13 Minnis Road, Birchington-on-Sea, Kent, 2006 • Superb art deco ice cream emporium, run by the very engaging gentleman in the lower photos (I seem to remember he had an American accent). In 2016 this and Victoria’s restaurant next to it (which featured last post – I’m not sure if it was the same business at the time) were renamed Smith’s (Victoria’s) and The Parlour (this). They had the same retro sign-painted typography and a sign saying ‘Established 1946’ in the corner panel above the door.
