As locals ourselves, our philosophy is rooted in making positive contributions to the financial, societal, and environmental growth of the Mornington Peninsula region. We continually challenge ourselves to embody this ethos in our decision-making and practices.
Step into Cptn Jacks, and you’re not just entering a place to dine; you’re entering a gateway to the flavours of our region. Our kitchen, led by the visionary Chef Matt Knoops, is dedicated to crafting dishes that capture the unique essence of our locale. By sourcing our ingredients locally, we ensure that every bite you take is a journey through the vibrant tapestry of our community.
Sustainability isn’t just a buzzword—it’s a commitment to safeguarding our planet for future generations. By sourcing locally, we reduce the carbon footprint associated with transporting food over long distances. Our choice to work with nearby farms and suppliers means fewer emissions and a smaller ecological impact. With this approach, we’re not just creating delectable dishes; we’re also contributing to a greener, healthier world.
Every ingredient on your plate has a backstory – a tale of hardworking farmers, dedicated artisans, and a community that thrive together. By sourcing local produce, we forge stronger ties with our neighbouring local businesses, fostering partnerships that empower the local economy and inspire a sense of togetherness that enriches our culinary offerings.
