Coastal cafe in Marks Point
Party like a pirate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the newest café, restaurant, and bar in Marks Point; The Captain & Crew.
Opening in February 2020, the Lake Macquarie based venue has been lucky enough to keep their business ticking over during COVID-19 and is now ready to welcome you all in for dine-in!
Owned and operated by husband and wife team Kristen & Tristan, The Captain & Crew has brought some much needed cool, coastal hospitality to the sleepy suburb of Marks Point. Serving up colourful food and drinks. The menu utilises local produce and suppliers and hits the nail on the head when it comes to elevated yet casual dining.
The quiet corner café invites you into a warm, coastal, and modern interior complete with eye-catching teal fish-tail tiles on the bar, cane and velvet chairs, and matching cutlery and table settings.
Whether you’re heading along for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or anything in between there’s a little bit of something for everyone.
The all-day brunch menu boasts all your typical Aussie café favourites including Crushed Avocado served on charred sourdough with pine nut, pea & sesame puree, and labneh. Get something insta-worthy and order the Belgium Waffles complete with house made berry compote, ice-cream, and maple syrup topped with candied walnuts.
Enjoy breakfast or lunch with a cup of Joe from the Will & Co coffee, cold brew or cold press juice from Hrvst St.
When it comes to dinner, it’s all about the burgers, the curries, and small shares at The Captain and Crew. Order a round of Lamb + Pine Nut Cigars finished with pomegranate molasses, Steamed Broccolini served with toasted almond and house made Moroccan seasoning and House Baba Ghanoush with zaatar crisps for the table. Or order yourself a Beef Brisket or Lamb & Halloumi burger served with sweet potato fries.
Wash dinner down with one of their signature cocktails, peruse the craft beer and cider menu or sip on their very own sparkling wine; Mermaid Kisses Prosecco.
