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!

Really super place to have breakfast. Right on harbour front. Nice to be able to sit outside with such wonderful setting. Very dog friendly. Lively breakfast freshly cooked and hot. Nice staff. Rest of menu looks good. It was certainly very popular all day

This restaurant is a nice place to have your early morning full English breakfast. Friendly service, good and fresh food. In summer time great to sit outdoors.
