Just 2 blocks from the Staten Island Ferry, Cargo Cafe recently opened after improvements and renovations to our bar and dining room. This Staten Island staple is well-known for the food, live music, surreal artwork, and eclectic crowd. Its eccentric vibe is not something you’d expect from NYC’s suburban borough. We are highly recommended by the Staten Island Ferry Tourists Guide, and our patrons have become lifelong customers due to our funky, artsy and eclectic atmosphere, that is like no other establishment on the Island. 

Whether you are dining in for Brunch, Lunch or Dinner, we cover our tables with large white paper and challenge our guests to share their artsy creative sides so we can showcase their doodles in the restaurant. We may share it on social media, or up on our walls, we’ve seen so many brilliant artworks over the years and always encourage more!

We are more than a typical bar or restaurant. we offer delicious cuisine, including mouth-watering appetizers, yummy desserts, with the best-mixed drinks, taps and traditional beers. We change our beers and taps weekly and are always showcasing new ones. Chef Farrington has been with Cargo Cafe for over 20 years. He is a staple in the local restaurant industry, and we are glad to have him!
