Either breakfast or lunch one the best restaurants on the island. You will find the locals eating here six days a week. One of our favorite places for lunch. You will not be disappointed

Get out of the hotel and eat local. Creative and tasty breakfast and lunch items in a casual little café.

My husband and I took a little Staycation and when to Galveston Island for a few days. One thing we wanted to do was try local restaurants; nothing chain or that we could get at home. Shykats was on our list and we are so glad we didn't miss it. The atmosphere is quaint and homey with eclectic furnishings. A... More

Definitely not for the early riser, a few times I've been here well after 7, the stated opening time, and the door was still locked. I've had breakfast here a number of times and it was decent, but nothing to write home about, and probably a few bucks more than I would expect for the same thing at IHOP or... More

The food, especially the baked goods, are really yummy at Shy Katz' Deli! I order the Nancy Special, named after a friend of mine! It is a grilled chicken breast, spinach and potatoes, usually fried sweet taters! Fair prices. I don't care much for the overtly Christian decor, however, the coffee makes up for it!

We were staying at Diamond Beach and one of the condo owners recommenced this place for breakfast. So worth any wait time you may have. Limited seating, so you may have to wait for a table to be cleared & cleaned. We did breakfast. Wonderful home cooking and yes the biscuits are as good as we'd heard about. Very nice... More

Our family stops here for at least one breakfast during our annual summer trip to Galveston. The French toast with fresh cream and strawberries is my favorite, but everything we have tried is great.

You will love this breakfast, brunch, lunch cafe....off the beaten path near the Strand & the beach..lots of seating...very cute, warm, inviting interior & very sweet staff. The food was wonderful...their burger, pancakes (which were amazing), and shoosh chicken sandwich...yummy! Pricing is fair & portions can easily be shared. Cool cat, ShyKatz!

My family had breakfast here on the last day of our trip. Everything was delicious: pancakes (huge), bacon, french toast, sausage, hash browns, even the Mickey Mouse pancakes. Even the cookies were delicious (not that it wouldn't take some real effort to screw up a cookie but still). It's a family owned business with a unique, 'homey' kind of feel.... More
