You have to try ShyKatz while in Galveston. It's a family run deli that has delicious food. My family each had something different and it was all good. It is not a chain, or on Seawall blvd, and a little tricky to find. If we had been in Galveston longer, we would have definitely gone back. They bake their own... More

Came here based on the tripadvisor reviews. The woman at the counter was very friendly. Ordered the eggs and bacon plate, 2 drinks and a side of biscuits and gravy for my toddler. It came out to just under 20 dollars which seems rather steep for a place with self service drink stations. The food was good, nothing special, though... More

This is a great local place! My husband and I went in for breakfast on a Friday morning. The food is fresh and made to order. My husband said that the pancakes were some of the best he's ever eaten. I ordered The Hurricane=breakfast sandwich. It was delicious and filling! The owner was welcoming and the environment was like home.... More

Had breakfast on 2 days and everything was fresh and scrumptious. Don't miss this place! Individual crust less quiches and scones are yummy.

I can only echo what most have said about ShyKatz, it's mostly a local hangout (I'm a local), it's crowded, the food is pricey, but good. We arrived about 12:45, close to the end of the lunch run, the place was packed and noisy. By just after 1:00 though, it was a much more pleasant dining experience. I had the... More
