Restaurant & Café, Home-made Ice Cream, Fish & Chips, Take Away Service

Established in the 1960's as Macari's, this popular café and ice-cream parlour is now run as an independent family business with experience in the trade since 1988. Now known as “Café Vita”, we still uphold the high standards of service and quality that our customers have come to expect, and always strive to exceed them wherever we can.

Why Vita? Well, quite simply, 'vita' means life in Italian, and we feel this reflects the new breath of life in our improved menu and offerings. We take our inspiration from Italy, which is renowned for aromatic coffees, delicious home-made ice-creams, and service with a smile!

Home made ice creamSituated just a stone's throw from Worthing Pier and Esplanade, we are ideally located for a visit to the town centre or the beach. You can enjoy our fully licensed menu in the restaurant with ample seating both upstairs and down (around 100 covers), as well as outdoor seating in the nicer weather. A good selection of child-friendly meals are also available for those family days out.

Our upstairs restaurant is also ideal for parties and private functions, but please book ahead as it is very busy at certain times of the year.

Fish and Chips As well as our extensive restaurant menu, coffee bar, and ice-cream parlour, we also offer a take-away service. Great for crispy fresh fish and chips along the promenade ;-)

We take great pride in all aspects of our business; from spotlessly clean premises to a warm friendly service, and quality food. If you enjoyed visiting us, please tell your friends - if you didn't, please tell us.
