“Great Malt Pancakes!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

The Causeway Café was recommended to us. We biked there on a Friday morning and after a short 10-minutes wait, were seated. The manager (owner) was very friendly, the service was good, and the pancakes were some of the best I've ever had.

“More fun than great food, but plenty of both”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

This is a ritual breakfast stop for my family and many others. That's why the line is long (unless you come early) but the point is that everyone considers the experience worth waiting for. The wait can be nice -- the porch is pleasant, buy the paper and drink the free coffee. The menu choices are over the top -- Southern, quirky, sometimes imaginative. Because the wait staff in summer is mostly students, the service can be uneven. But Mike is ever-present and will make sure to put everything right. Don't miss the side dishes down in the corner of the menu -- on two pages! And the grits are really the best you'll have anywhere.

“Best breakfast around!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Definitely worth getting up for and waiting in line for if you have too! The eggs Neptune was scrumptious! Service friendly and casual atmosphere is a plus for the time of day you go. Even the owner came by to check on us.

“Delicious fried grouper sandwich!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Read TA reviews and decided to give this little café a try and we are so glad we did. Walking in the door we were assaulted by the delicious smells inside the café and I so wanted to come back the very next day for that wonderful breakfast smell. But not to worry, breakfast is served all day!!Great food, great atmosphere and a great staff. Will definitely be repeat customers here at the Causeway Café!
