“Always awesome”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

The eggs Neptune and waffles are the best! The standard breakfast of eggs and bacon or omelet is really good too. Can't beat the fast and friendly service.

“Best Breakfast At The Beach”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

I have eaten at the Causeway at least a hundred times, probably more. It never disappoints and everything on the menu is great. Don't leave because of the line - Dave makes it move quickly and efficiently. The waitresses are friendly and prompt. It is definitely worth the wait.

“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.
