The restaurant’s owners announced their anticipated closure date in a statement released on Facebook. Dave Monaghan, Causeway Cafe’s owner, will soon retire.

“Dave’s retirement has come, and with it, Causeway Cafe will be retiring as well,” the post states.

Locals, regulars, and visitors can still visit Causeway Cafe up until its last day, Sunday, Nov. 4. Though the building is not owned by Monaghan, he is looking for interested parties to purchase the business.

“We want to thank you for more than thirty years of joining us for family meals, special occasions, and great conversations with our regulars and visitors,” the post states. “We will always cherish the memories that the Causeway has offered, and we will miss you all dearly!”
