When its half term you make plans, you understand that being cooped up indoors when youre off school isnt exactly ideal but Mother Nature doesnt always go along with these plans. In fact she pulled a doozy this week throwing Storm Doris at us!
However when you have promised your children you will take them to Lickety Split on Seaham seafront, you darn sure better still take them (ok so I was craving waffles enough to brave the weather!)
With our heads covered we ran from the car to the creamery and did the same when we left so I have been graciously allowed to post this photo from Emmas blog – pop over and read her review too 🙂
Once inside it was everything we thought it would be! A real life American style diner with staff dressed in poodle skirts and a life size Elvis welcoming you to the seating area. With a juke box and coke machine, diner style seating and vintage adverts adorning the walls you are transported back to the 50s the minute you step through the door.
There is a larger dessert menu than savoury offerings but they do still cater for those without a sweet tooth, giant hot dogs, paninis and sandwiches are available. Catering mainly to those needing a sugar fix with an huge selection of milkshakes, sundaes and waffles this is somewhere you would choose as more of a treat day out than a lunch time venue.
Evie opted for the Fariy Fizzzzz Sundae which contains strawberry and vanilla ice creams, popping candy, sherbert and jelly babies, topped with fresh dairy cream. Amelia got a mini scoop of strawberry ice cream with a wafer and Ethan went for the ‘make your own’ sundae. He chose bubble gum, mint and hazelnut ice creams with Haribo and Flake toppings and wafers with blueberry sauce to finish
Stuart, Jake and myself chose the waffles, the boys had theirs with chocolate ice cream and Mars Bar topping, mine had Turkish Delight ice cream and Daim topping… needless to say none of us managed to finish the plate (2 whole waffles, a scoop of ice cream, scoop of fresh cream, whole Daim bar and a mountain of drizzled plain and white chocolate defeated me!)
Costing just shy of £35 for 3 plates of waffles, 2 sundaes and a small scoop cup this is not an everyday treat but not too badly priced for a special occassion.
