Worth the wait for breakfast on a chilly spring Friday morning. Western omelet was loaded to the hilt. Eggs Benedict Neptune was a treat, and the 1/2 waffle with blueberries was tasty! Next time we visit Wilmington we will try the sourdough french toast. Service...More

This used to be a quaint place to grab breakfast! Now-- its a tourist trap! Long waits for mediocre food.No credit cards-- long lines and a very dirty restaurant! Needs a deep clean!

Picked the restaurant based off reviews and was not disappointed. Lunch was great! Just remember, restaurant is cash or local check only.

I've been eating here for 30 years and it never disappoints. It's just a fun place to gather on a weekend morning. There's usually a wait and I love the way Mike yells out your name when your table is ready. There is nothing fancy...More

We go here often for breakfast. It's always good - down home cooking served quickly and with a smile. Only issue is it's always very crowded unless you arrive early.

The HEALTHY oatmeal at the Causeway Cafe is my go-to breakfast at Wrightsville Beach...walnuts, cranberries and brown sugar...A great way to start the day! The waitresses make frequent rounds for coffee refills which is always appreciated. This seems to be a popular choice for the...More

What a place! Great "local" place has been around for a looooong time. The name is NO LONGER "Mike & Katy's" Causeway Cafe and should be changed to "Causeway Cafe." Ate at the counter. Eggs, omelets, hash browns, waffles, grits --- all the things that...More

Despite the 15-minute wait, surprising for the off-season, our food was delicious as always. My husband enjoyed the philly, and I enjoyed the seafood omelet. The service was great and the food came out pretty fast. One thing to note is that they do not...More

Came for breakfast around 9:30 am on a week day. No wait this day. Table was dirty & I was wiping it as the server approached. She never asked if she could get a towel or assist. Took our order & returned with food pretty...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
