Great Little Deli!

They had very good french toast and hamburgers. It is great if you just want to get away from the tourist eateries.

They tout this place as one of the best for breakfast. Do not stop. The gravy was a pink color, the food cold.. absolutely horrid. Left & went to Shipleys donuts. Best move I made

Best tomato grilled cheese ever, and I don't even like tomatoes, I just got it for the sake of adventure.

Home cooked food at a great price! A hidden jewel in Galveston. Love the mom & pop place! Homemade bread! Friendly wait staff and very clean!

Been here five or six times. Best breakfast ever. I can't wait to visit Galveston again so I can try another item on the menu.

The food was really good; I had a Fat Boi burger. They definitely make their own patties here, too. The meat was flavorful and juicy. I had some sweet potato fries with my hamburger and a drink and my total was about $18. I'm not sure if my order got wrung up wrong or what but I wasn't in the... More

I would never have found this on my own. I met some folks who live on the island for a working lunch and it was fantastic. Everything looked good and I had a veggie wrap. The desserts were on display and we're all obviously homemade, but alas I can't eat sugar very often...SIGH

This restaurant is very casual. The furnishings and serving pieces are an eclectic mix which makes it fun. We had the french toast with whipped cream and strawberries. It was delicious. The coffee is good. That's important at breakfast. The portions are generous.
