Crab cakes [and tuna] aren’t the only stars at Atlantic
Coast Café . . . their Shrimp ‘n Grits can’t be missed.
You might not expect to find one of the banks’ best crab cakes in a simple sandwich—until you see the out-the-door line waiting to order at the counter of the Atlantic Coast Café in Waves. “All killer, no filler,” the motto behind the plump lump-meat cakes, reflects the ACC’s focus on flavor. The crowd-pleasing menu includes a Cajun-spiced tuna steak burger and Reuben sandwiches, both classic and coastal (swapping a crab cake or fried shrimp for corned beef and coleslaw for sauerkraut.) Grilled mahi (or fresh catch) tacos get extra crunch and structure from shredded cabbage and a hard shell tucked inside a soft one. Cheese, coleslaw, pineapple and Thai-style chili sauce add zest to the Cajun Chicken Wrap, finished on the grill. Don’t forget the full breakfast available daily to 11 a.m. (try the muffins) – and the breakfast wrap and sandwiches are available all day.
