“Great Eggs Benedict”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

The place is nothing to look at and if you weren't referred you would drive by but it's a local place seems like everyone knows each other and likely comes in everyday think Cheers without the bar...they make fresh breads, and serve awesome Eggs Benedict keep in mind cash only

“Big servings and an old time flavour”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We went here with another couple and had a very hearty breakfast. I ordered the omelet special for that day (hash western). Very good, and something that I had never tried before. I thought it would be more of a western omelet but instead it was like a corn beef hash (minus the corn) with some pepper and onions and lots of cheese in the omelet. It was really, really good. I was so busy shoveling it into my mouth that I don't remember exactly what the other 3 at my table were eating. One did order the Captain Crunch French toast - he said that it was interesting and you did get a taste of the cereal on the outer coating. Along with the Water Street Café this is a restaurant favoured by the locals. I always figure folks that live in the area know where to go for a good breakfast. There is "captain" theme to the décor. Definitely a place you can take your children.

“Great Burgers, Quirky Atmosphere”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

Stumbled on this place in downtown Geneva New York. Everything in the place is captain themed. They have pics and paintings of famous captains, Captain Kangaroo, captain caveman, captain morgan, captain kirk, etc. Every delicious burger is named after a captain. The place was run for years by the owner and more recently his daughter took it over according to newspaper article on wall. Food is amazing, staff are friendly and owner very nice. Cliental are mainly locals and look a bit rough but no concerns at all. This place is a bit hard to find as there is only a very small sign and you can easily drive by and miss it. They clearly do not need to advertise. They only do breakfast and lunch and close at 2pm. They also have a very good fish sandwich. Sides are all homemade and delicious. If you like burgers and unique dining experiences this is the place.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

This is a great local place in Geneva, New York. The breakfast menu is large and unique. Several dishes are based on the theme of captains as is the décor. We sat near pictures of William Shatner as Captain Kirk and Bob Keeshan as Captain Kangaroo. We ate in this café twice with different experiences. The first time was terrific with attentive service. Our second visit was different because the service was poor, maybe because the owner was not there during that visit. During the second visit, the staff failed to prepare coffee and all the patrons went without for 15-20 minutes. They had also run out of ingredients for some of the menu items.

When they are running efficiently, this is a very good choice for breakfast and very inexpensive for what you get.
