Salad magic

We arrived just before the lunch crowd, five minutes later and the queue was to the door. I had the Chinese salad, my friend had the Thai salad both were so fresh and full of flavour we couldn't believe how good they were. We ordered at the counter and you have to help yourself to the drinks. I had... read more

Enjoy freshly prepared selections at this casual dining spot located in quaint old two story home. Generous portions are a very good value. Outdoor dining available. Very busy for lunch. Go early, there may be a line out the door.

Consistently good quality food, we can recommend the shrimp tacos, pulled pork, and Asian noodles. The goat cheese medallions are especially good. Nice, casual atmosphere and good service. I feel it is a bit oveerpriced, otherwise would be a five.

We stopped in for lunch and really enjoyed it! We started with an Asian Shrimp Skewer, it was on top of pasta with a vinaigrette and peanut sauce for dipping. We both liked it. I had the shrimp tacos on corn tortillas and I did not want the black beans and rice it was served with, so I had the... More

This is an order at the counter cafe but your meal will be brought to you. You will help yourself with beverages though. Still, the food was good and the coffee nice and strong. I was happy to find they served Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee! I had the crustless quiche and it was delicious! The prices weren't bad and my... More

Fresh and healthy food. Nice variety of foods. Love the sides...especially the noodles. Often very crowded so we try to go on off hours otherwise it's hard to find a table.

Went at 1pm on Friday thinking we might miss the busiest lunch crowd, but still waited about 30 minutes to place our orders and get a table. The line was out the door and waited outside the first 10 minutes. At the Mosquito Cafe you order first then get a table. Servers bring your order to the table. Both of... More

Have eaten here 3-4 times and I tell everyone about it. Went three years ago with my son but had researched for a vegetarian place in case daughter got to go also. Wide variety of food but always has a gourmet touch. Would have received an excellent rating but service was really slow. Had finished my lemonade cake before my... More

While my wife and I were vacationing in Galveston during the third week of June we decided to try out the Mosquito Cafe. It's directly across the street from Patty Cakes and appears to have the same owner(s). One morning we brought our small dog and sat outside. There are at least 10 tables with plenty of seating and vented... More

The food is always great here with daily fresh specials. Portions are right size. Food is fresh and I suspect, in many cases, locally sourced. Menu items are well thought out and creative with a little something for everyone. Place is small and reservations for 6 or more are taken. The place is often packed so we try to go... More
