Location and contact

We are a little family run cafe on Ramsgate's Royal harbour. We offer a breakfast and lunch menu.We are pet and child friendly and enjoy to meet all kinds of people. We are open from 7am till 5pm all year around (except at Christmas were we have Christmas eve, Christmas day and boxing day off). But otherwise, come down for a chat and a cuppa :). We aim to have a friendly relax environment for everyone. Weather you are a work person needing a break or just going for an afternoon walk and want a cuppa. We are here for all :) We look forward to meeting you!

The cafe is next the harbour and with its barrel roof and unique interior worth a visit. I chose the all day breakfast which was freshly cooked and covered the plate ....well cooked. Recommended

Ship-Shape is located along Ramsgate Harbour, the cafe is in a little arches and quite a unique and nice looking place to eat. The staff are very friendly, the food isn’t the best. Will probably be back!
