“Absolutely The Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Best grub in an unassuming atmosphere. Come early cause the word is out on the Causeway Cafe. The food and service are amazing. These folks care! I would eat here daily if I lived at the beach.

“Decent!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Went for breakfast. Great service and great atmosphere. Heads up - it's check or cash only.

The breakfast was very good and everyone in our party seemed to really enjoy it.

“Awesome Breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

This was our second trip to the Causeway Cafe and we were not disappointed. Two of us had the french toast made with Texas toast. It was yummy! We also ordered a small bowl of grits to share because these are undoubtedly some of the best grits I've tasted. (And being a South Carolina girl, I've tasted quite a few!) These grits don't need butter. Our husbands tried out the omelets this time. One had the sausage omelet and the other had the meat lover's. Both were delicious with lots of filling. The only "complaint" would be that they were a little dry on the outside. A sprinkle of cheese or maybe some hollandaise sauce would have made them just about perfect. Biscuits, hot and steamy, were light and fluffy, melt in your mouth good. The sausage was not your typical little link, but rather "hotdog" size, and scrumptious. If you like a diner-style breakfast, this is the place for you. The owner (manager?) walks around and talks to the customers and even remembered us from our previous visit three days prior. Would love to return to try out the lunch menu. Highly recommended.

“Best grits ever, other food quite good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We loved this place. A fun local vibe. We arrived by 8 am and didn't have to wait for a table. We all agreed the grits were the best we've ever had. Must be cooked with butter and cream? I enjoyed scrambled eggs. Others tried the corned beef hash (one with fried eggs, and one with poached eggs) - both said the corned beef hash was good (and both wished it had been fried a little crispier). One person had french toast that was delicious. Two of us had bacon that was supposed to be extra crispy but it wasn't...just chewy and not super flavorful. So that was disappointing. Coffee was adequate...not Starbucks but ok.

Overall we found the place fun, the food good, the grits fabulous, and the people very friendly and helpful. The owner came over and chatted with us for a while which was nice. This isn't gourmet. And the coffee isn't Starbucks. But for a fun, hearty breakfast with a nice local feeling we really liked it. We plan to go back tomorrow!
