This is a little cafe in a lovely position overlooking the harbour. Friendly staff. Good food. Small inside but extra seating downstairs although better to sit upstairs or outside for the views.

We sat inside as the weather wasn't great - usually we sit outside to enjoy the view. We had our usual Sunday brunch - scrambled eggs and mushrooms on toast for me & a full English for my husband. A friendly greeting is guaranteed & as we are regulars we get our pot of tea just as we like it.... More

Sat outside the Galley on a lovely sunny day and was amazed at the quality and cost of lunch. So much to choose from a great menu. Decided on homemade quiche and lasagne with a lovely salad and fresh bread and butter. Delicious.

We have always used The Galley for our breakfasts whenever we stay in Ramsgate and have never been disappointed. The friendly reception that we receive each time has encouraged us to recommend The Galley to others. Sunday, last (22 March) 14 of us were staying Ramsgate to celebrate a birthday. 3 of us had eaten breakfast here before, however, I... More

Small and a bit cramped inside but lovely to sit outside on a sunny day. Very good home cooked food.

a good quality friendly place with great views over the harbour. Need to remember what they are and try not to present the food with a 70's style flair that doesn't suit. Should rely on the obvious quality of the product (and they'd save a fortune on icing sugar)

A great little place to take the traditional english breakfast with fabulous views of Ramsgate Harbour. Of course you need a sunny day,or at least dry, to dine outside.

I visited here for the first time last year in the summer (2014). I ordered the crab salad. I don't think I've EVER ordered a SALAD while out and about before, but I love crab so.... I took the plunge. I received a fully dressed crab with a bowl of nice greens - as expected! What wasn't really expected was... More

Went for brunch here, attracted by a board advertising all day breakfasts and as it was a sunny day, it's a perfect spot to sit on one of their outdoor tables. Good value for money for nice home cooked grub with lovely proprietors. Will visit again.

This is the second time we have been here for lunch and we were not disappointed. It is a beautiful cafe by the harbour, has little tables outside ( with blankets) to watch the world go by. The owners were very friendly and attentive. We had crab salad, the crab was delicious, and his was served with huge slices of... More
