A star for breakfast

Star drug store is conveniently located near the Tremont hotel and the cruise terminal in Galveston. It is a quaint and interesting place for an inexpensive breakfast. Super friendly and good coffee with plenty of refills.

While on Galveston Island you may wish to stop here for a sandwich and shake, malt, or soda at an original drug store counter. Have the coffee shake. It is delicious.

We stopped by here on a Sunday morning after a day working the Grand Kids Festival. This is an old drug store that has a lot of antiques in it, a center u-shaped bar/soda fountain and a grill at the end. My wife had Eggs Benedict and I had pancakes and bacon. Let me tell you, the pancakes were great.... More

The Star Drug Store, near Galveston's Strand District, is reportedly the oldest drug store in Texas. The breakfast was delicious and reasonable - and fun to eat at the "soda fountain!" You can ask the servers for suggestions, and they'll give you the real story. I asked about the grits, and he said they were a little runny that day;... More

The food was Great. and a great bargain! The entire place is full of history, fires, floods, hurricanes and the place is still standing ! both floors are full of crafts, memorabilia, t-shirts, purses, jewelry, etc all for sale...it's like a museum where all things are on sale... I loved it here.

I've heard good things from others so we went for breakfast...how can you mess up breakfast??? They did and we were disappointed. Sat at the counter and it took forever to get waited on. We have decided to give it another chance soon so will update after that visit.

Great location-very close to the cruise ships and cruise ship parking. The service was fast and friendly. The prices are great and the food was excellent. Even if you're not eating, this old drug store is worth checking out.

The islander omelet was very good. The one thing that struck me wrong was the cooks were handling the food with their bare hands. Customers sitting at the bar do not want to see someone handling their food with bare hands. that area of handling food with bare hands needs attention. This was my first time to visit this location... More

We stopped in for lunch. We had the rueben and bacon avacado turkey. They were both good. Chips were run of the meal. Choose the fruit as a side. Cute little diner setting. Everyone was super nice. We will come back here
