This is a local gem tucked into a neighborhood in Galveston. Shannon and her team provide great service and fantastic food. My personal favorite is breakfast and the pancakes are best I have ever had. For the first time I catered an office breakfast yesterday with them and was very pleased with the quality and quantity of bulk food order.... More

Just good food. Everything. When the fridge is empty, Shy Katz is where we go. Stay away from the bread pudding, it's reserved for me!

Went here for breakfast after reading the reviews and we were not disappointed. The eggsalad sandwich was wonderful and the bacon crispy. The fruit salad nice and fresh. My daughter loved her wrap.

Anything you want to have for breakfast is good here. The coffee is always fresh, breads, rolls, cakes and other tasty delights...fresh. When in town we have breakfast here at least once.

Everytime I eat at ShyKatz Deli I am taken with another aspect of this little restaurant in a residential neighbourhood! They have decadent desserts and pastries, their burgers compete with the best burger joint on the Island (the Spot), they have tasty sweet potato fries, however, this time I want to mention their Ice Tea! Most of the time I... More

What a great find. My dearest friend Beverle (who also happens to be a "B.O.I." (born on the island), and a great cook and even better baker, took me to this adorable and delicious restaurant. We split a cheeseburger and sweet potato fries and a strawberry cake. Everything was cooked perfectly. Very fresh and home cooked. I have the menu... More

Wow, this place was packed! I can see why this is a "local" spot. What a neat atmosphere, homey and comfortable. Staff was friendly and the food had that "home cooked" taste. The service line was out the door so I expected a bit of a wait, to my surprise it moved quickly and there wasn't a long delay for... More
