Fun breakfast place for the family. Waffles and pancakes are amazing. Omelettes are delicious. This is a busy place and note that they are a cash or check only restaurant.

We had the shrimp basket and the flounder sandwich at lunch. The shrimp was over cooked and the fries and onion rings were very greasy. The cole slaw was more mayo than cabbage. Overall, it was not great.

It's wonderful to be greeted with such open enthusiasm. That's what you get at this cafe (at least in May before the beach crowds descend on them). While we didn't have to wait to be seated, we heard that during the "season" (i.e., summer), people...More

There is one detail other reviewers left out. When the Cafe is crowded, which it always seems to be, especially during the season, you will be waiting outside until a table is available. Put your name on the list and enjoy the weather. When a...More

No, they do not take any type of card. The store next door, Redix, has an ATM if you need it.

We have been out-of-town regulars for over 20 years. The staff at Causeway is great. Being a resort town they get a little turnover, but compared to most beach town, the turnover is tiny. David's staff do well working... More

Located along Causeway Drive, the building was first build back in the 1950s as a bar then was taken over by Dave Monaghan in the 1980s.
