We were strolling down the main drag in town looking for a place to have breakfast and stumbled upon Captain Nemos. The waitress we had was outgoing, friendly and made us feel like we were her family as soon as she came to our table. The food was delicious, portions generous, and the mood is cheerful. They do not rush... More

I recently had a chicken salad and my husband had the gyro plate; both were very good. The selection and quality of the ice cream is great. Reasonably priced.

Stopped here for ice cream after dinner. So many great flavors to choose from...it took me forever to decide! Be warned...a "single" is really more like TWO SCOOPS and they will give you two flavors which is what I did. The ice cream was fabulous! If we are ever back in South Haven, a return visit will be a must!

My family visits South Haven for about a week every year. During that time it is our tradition to get ice cream at Captain Nemo's every night. My wife and I passed through South Haven this past weekend. Of course we stopped at Captain Nemo's for some great ice cream.

Stopped here for breakfast with my family while staying in South Haven. The Greek Scromlet was DELICIOUS!! Best Greek omelet/scramble I've ever had and I order Greek skillets/Omelettes often. I don't remember our waitresses name but she was so attentive and kind! My daughter had a blueberry muffin which I sampled and it was very good.

They serve meals, but most come in for ice cream. For a busy place the staff was fast and efficient. Good quality ice cream.
