Chanced upon this little cafe in Ramsgate - just wanted a sandwich and cool drink. Both ordered a crab sandwich and glass of pinot grigio. Wow - we were presented with sandwiches and a lovely, fresh salad - delicious! Thank you to the lovely people who run this little gem for the excellent food and great service.

After a long walk, what you need is tea and cake and this did it just perfectly. An outside table overlooking the harbour, the sun beaming down. Lovely crockery and tea pot delivering a gorgeous cuppa and then to top it off scones and cream. It makes walking worthwhile. Thank you

Popped in for tea/coffee/sausage sandwich - perfect. All staff extremely friendly. Sat at a table on the pavement, overlooking the harbour (beautiful views) but, because it's not a thoroughfare, you didn't have many people walking past. Would thoroughly recommend it.

A tiny eatery overlooking the harbour. Less than 5 minutes from the multistory car park (free on Saturdays would you believe) and the same time to the harbour. Stands among other eateries on the terrace and we chose this just because as they say. It looks unassuming and it is but don't let that fool you.We both had crab and... More

We recently stayed at the Travel lodge just near to the harbour. We saw a sign advertising the small parade of cafes and restaurants opposite and decided to go and take a look. How lucky we were...this cafe is a hidden little gem. Fantastic breakfast, great friendly service too. We have family in this area and visit regularly...we usually stay... More

Perfectly positioned cafe with a varied menu. The service is very pleasant and the coffe great. My second time this week. The best place in Ramsgate . There's a nice view of the harbour which is unspoiled with traffic unlike many places in this town
