“Quality !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

I visit Marmalades every time I am in Ramsgate due to the very high standard of quality coffee & food served there along with the welcoming & friendly atmosphere due to the owner.
I have tried most of what's on the menu & can honestly say one really get's they're money's worth & the cake's so delicious with very generous portions.
I will be taking family for Marmalades high tea as a Birthday treat!! Etc...
A very stylish and vintage decor including Tea-pots & miss match cups & saucer bringing it's own unique flavour to the experience .

“BRILLIANT !! A MUST IF YOU ARE IN THE AREA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

I have frequently been to Marmalade and have always had a lovely visit ,with its quirky style and friendly staff its a must visit if you are in the area!!! Coffee is by far better than any you would get in your local starbucks or costa (i am a Londoner who loves her coffee) and food is Delicious and served with a smile,I have read a negative comment which is rude and in accurate on here and i hope this doesn't deter people from visiting as i would defiantly not recommend any thing but the very best !

“not really recommended”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

I visited with my mum - my sandwich was nice - when it finally arrived - and if my mum's baked potato had been hotter - it was barely warm - she would have enjoyed that as well. The negatives are - the service - it is a tiny place and they seem not to have invested in a tray so things are delivered to the table piecemeal which of course means there is more opportuinity to forget things, and it is very time consuming for the server. - We had to ask for cutlery and napkins, salt - (which came in a sugar sifter!!) and a cup for the pot of tea. This constant to-ing and fro-ing means that although there aren't many tables there are more than they can manage. It came to over £13 for a sandwich, a potato, a soft drink and a pot of tea. The "pot" barely filled a cup and a half, and the milk allocation was scanty even for that.

So in summary - the food quality is good, the service is awful, and the prices might be justified if it even managed the level you expect in McDonald's as it stands they aren't - You can get good sandwiches in Waitrose just up the road - and as they do tea and coffee there now too - a picnic from there might be much more preferable, and certainly much quicker.

“Don't go.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013 via mobile

Ordered a pot of tea and a diet Coca Cola. Served by an orange lady who was unfriendly. The tea set was all a mismatch. She said she's not sure they have diet cola. Served my tea without a sugarpot then when I asked for one was given a rusty yellow tin with a few sugar lumps and no tong to pick the sugar out. I served myself the tea and asked my friend to confirm what I suspected-salty tea. So grossed out. The worst experience of a teashop ever.
