Antonio’s Café

Handmade Italian ice cream and coffee

Antonio’s is a multiple award winning, family owned Café and Ice Cream Parlour in the heart of Exmouth town centre. Their Italian ice cream or gelato is freshly handmade on the premises to their very own Italian recipes.

As well as making over 150 different flavours of gelato which change daily, you can also enjoy hot waffles, the biggest selection of traditional and new ice cream sundaes, milkshakes, and a wide variety of hot food and beverages. Their coffee is roasted and blended in Vicenza, Italy to give the perfect Espresso.

Antonio’s origins lie in the foothills of the Abruzzi Mountains in Southern Italy where his mother Maria grew up in the small rural town of Capistrello. Like many Italians in the post second world war period, Antonio’s mother emigrated from the poverty of Southern Italy to start a new life in England in 1960. She arrived in Devon with a family of Italians who ran a sea front café where Antonio started working in the summer holidays when he was 10 years old!

Antonio’s hope you enjoy a ‘Taste of Italy’.
