Spent a few days from London visiting my old friend in Ramsgate. He took me to the Lookout Café for lunch. It was a beautiful sunny day, and we sat outside enjoying the seaview. I managed to order the last of their homecooked Steakpie dinners with, Mash, Cabbage, Peas, Swede, and Carrots. It was Yum-Yum, so much food on the... More

Value for money 5/5 Service 4/5 Food type traditional British cafe (baked potatoes, omelettes, doorstep sandwiches, cheese on toast, chips). Always a good deal, portions are not skimpy. Good to see generous salad portions, too. View 5+/5 Just lovely, whether sunrise or sunset or the middle of the day. Now open all year so even mid winter sunny days you... More

A fantastic little cafe when walking with or without a dog... Certainly not the biggest cafe but great value and great sea view and great for sitting outside and watching the world go by... Worth a visit

The staff in this cafe are fun loving and so friendly makes it a place you want to visit time and again.I can highly recommend a full English breakfast cooked with good quality food ( Heinz beans and bacon not salty ) with a beautiful view of the English channel.Very dog friendly inside and out.

Dropped in to this little gem on our coastal drive today, ordered a coffee then saw the rock cakes, then the wife saw the crumble so added those on! All scratch home made and lovely. I even added a bacon and egg bap for "desert". Don't judge a book by its cover and give this little place a try for... More

Hardly spoke and I had to call to be served she could see I was there but just carried on washing up. It's not somewhere I would stop again there are other... More

A nice enough place to stop if you fancy a quick bite and a refreshment. I thought it was a little pricey for what it is. I mean a sarnie and a cuppa tea for over £4.00? I mean it's hardly haute cuisine. It is what is it: a greasy spoon, style, no fuss cafe. I feel that owners are... More
