While you stay at Wrightsville Beach (or as you are leaving), you should go to breakfast at the Causeway Cafe. This is an old school, old style establishment, where the waitresses know the regulars and where the breakfast is good traditional North Carolina fare. *Any and all* breakfasts (except hot cakes) should be ordered with biscuits and grits. Coffee flows... More

Kind of a hole in the wall place that was ok for a quick lunch but I wouldn't choose it again. No credit cards accepted, ceiling tiles are absolutely NASTY to look at caked with grease and water stains. Food was average. Fried chicken nuggets over cooked. Shrimp wrap was too laden with cheese. Beer bartered fries tasteless. I suspect... More

We have eaten here a number of times. The food quality is very good, the portions are generous, and the cost is reasonable. This is a local favorite. I recommend the omelets, pancakes, and seafood. We have tried all of these and all are very good. The flounder was great today. The tuna steak was very good. Side including potato... More

This place is far from fancy, but be sure to check it out. Good food for the money and you will not leave hungry! It's only opened for breakfast and lunch. I had the seafood platter with shrimp, crab cake, and tuna steak with hush puppies, chips, and coleslaw for $15 ! You can't get a tuna steak by itself... More

Were looking for a local spot for lunch & took trip advisor recommendation for the causeway cafe. My husband and I split a shrimp poor boy, had fried green tomatoes and fresh sweet potato fries. All good. The dessert special was banana pudding. Vanilla wafers & tons of bananas in a thick, creamy pudding - we ate every bite !... More

If you need fine dining this is not the place for you. This is a casual restaurant in the best tradition of the beach. It is open for breakfast and lunch until 2:30. The prices are VERY reasonable. My wife had soft shell crabs that were to die for. The batter was light and the crabs were fresh. I ordered... More

This place is authentic, old school Wrightsville Beach. Where the elite meet to eat. Best breakfast and lunch anywhere.

Good for typical breakfast, eggs, sausage bacon. Hash browns terrific. Biscuits were disappointing. Tasted underdone and doughy. Sausage good, large links.
