If you're looking for a new brunch venue, a weekday breakfast provider or just a place that serves modern international cuisine all afternoon, Captain Cook is worth checking out. The breakfast-brunch menu is available until 2:30pm on weekdays and 3:30pm on weekends, and features classics like Eggs Benedict and waffles. There are also a handful of lunch specials starting at 11:30am.

The English Breakfast is fairly substantial, with very tasty sausages and bacon, nicely grilled mushrooms, baked beans, a fried egg, grilled tomato and a big hunk of country-style bread. Butter is available upon request. Everything seemed to be properly done, although for this price (Y1650) we would have enjoyed two eggs rather than just one.

The full dinner menu kicks in at 2:30pm, with a mix of British and international fare - sausage and mash, roast beef, lamb tagine, schnitzel. There are several soup options (beetroot and apple, Boston chowder), with portions big enough to share or to serve as a main dish along with a salad. Our broccoli and Stilton cheese soup was quite hearty, and was paired very nicely with a voluminous, vegetable-filled half-size portion of quinoa salad.

Desserts include sticky toffee pudding and trifle, while original cocktails sport names like London Mule, Captain Cook's Pimms and Irish Dawn. Wines start at Y5000 per bottle, and go up to Y55,000 if you really want to show off. Budget around Y2500-4500 for dinner with drinks.
