Should you go down to the woods today, and by woods I mean a trip to the harbour in Ramsgate, I know just the place for an al fresco takeaway, with sea views – Little Ships.
Offering take aways during these uncertain times, and takeaways that include doughnuts filled full of strawberry and cream, deserves a post.
This Mummy bear woke up very hungry, so strapped her baby bear into the pushchair and wondered down to the harbour, in search of warm, fresh croissants.
There’s nothing quite like summer rain, falling lightly and softly down.
Walking right into the largest rain clouds and coming out the other side to sunshine.
These views never fail to blow me away.
Perched on the corner, over looking the boats, bobbing on the harbour is Little Ships.
If its bright coloured awning’s doesn’t draw you in, the smell of coffee, doughnuts and croissants certainly will.
Welcome to Little Ships.
Named after the hundreds of little ships that left from Ramsgate (as well as other ports on the South coast) in the last weeks of May 1940 to rescue over 300,000 British and allied serviceman from the beaches of Dunkirk.
A lovely little place to grab some morning breakfast.
Go over the menu thoroughly because you’ll want to come back again for lunch or dinner very soon.
^ Picnic feast sounds good to me as does the sough dough open sandwiches.
In fact the whole menu does.
Most of it locally sourced from within 30 miles of the restaurant.
But today I came for doughnuts, I mean breakfast.
Fresh croissants, Almond croissants or pain au chocolate, you decide.
With restaurants still closed, and take away being the only option, we crossed over the road and found a pretty decent spot.
Warm, buttery, melt in your mouth croissant. Sprinkled with a dusting of sugar.
Even Alfie had his first bite.
We sat and watched the world go by, the clouds put on a monochrome show for us, floating across the sky and we played the “will it rain” game.
And when we were done, we were in just the right place to explore the harbour.
This stripe dress also comes in four other colours. Perfect for the beach, throw on a belt when you’re off for lunch.
First meal of the day complete, I headed back home to my other baby bear (Pollyanna, not Adam) and was set for what ever the day threw at me.
There’s something about a good breakfast that leaves you with a spring in your step.
Promise me you’ll visit and order up a storm.
Little Ships is available for takeaways and opening up on the 4th July for bookings inside the restaurant.
