Looking for a lunch featuring healthy options brought us to The Causeway. It is a small place, with TVs playing music videos when we were there. I had the soup and half sandwich and my wife a healthy salad and we went way satisfied.

Cute small restaurant right before crossing the Queen Isabella Causeway into South Padre Island. Husband and I have mainly been there for lunch and specialty coffee drinks. Salad, Soup, etc menu - healthy choices. Great for watching the traffic while sipping a coffee drink.
