Mosquito Café was our first stop in Galveston after coming from Hobby airport. We needed a good lunch! You stand in line to order, then they bring the food to your table. Standing in line gives you lots of time to read through their extensive menu that also includes chalkboard specials. Most sandwiches come with one side, and their choices... More

Stopped by for breakfast. Don't be spooked if there is a line, it moves fast. Excellent French toast! Nice variety on the menu. Their bakery is across the street and it is excellent as well!

It was time for a salad to balance all the seafood I was eating on my vacation so I headed to Mosquito Café. The Napa salad was fresh and had excellent flavors, including the dressing. Casual café atmosphere with a patio. Order at the cash register and they deliver the food to your table.

Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed our Napa Salad. Next time you’re on the island and need a break from the wonderful seafood, come in and try our Warm Goat Cheese Salad or our Turkey Divinity Sandwich; both are excellent alternatives. More

Small place but big variety on the menu. Order at the counter and they bring it to you. Outdoor seating on a cozy patio - great atmosphere. I had the meatloaf - delish! Others had the Asian bowl, pasta dish, and the famous...senegalese vegetables. These were the favorites. Staff was great and we were all pleased with our dinner choice.

I was on a project in Texas City, Tx for 5 months and ate here almost weekly. As did most of the other consultants on the project. The food is very freah and has great flavors. I also like the concept of placing your order at the counter and then they bring it to your table - with a real... More

Salads were crisp and fresh. I had ranch, my cousin had the house maple....YUM. Both salads were good to the last bite. Then came my Panko crusted fish tacos with Chipotle, pico, and salsa...None of which was too hot BUT all had great flavor, with sides of rice and black bean refried beans. She ordered Vegetable and added shrimp. Both... More

The brunch menu is extensive, and the price is very reasonable. There's plenty of seating, too, so it's a nice place to stop on a Sunday.

Thank you for your feedback. We try to keep the cakes covered 100% of the time when not being cut, so I’m sorry about this incident and hope you understand that we will insure this does not happen again. I hope everything else was delicious and that you were able to enjoy the rest of your meal. More

Good selections and great service. Had bagels, salmon and fresh fruit, great presentation. Not sure about when they are open, but worth the trip.

Read the trip advisor and Houston Press so we gave it a shot after seeing pumpkin bisque on the menu. Food was okay but nothing great. We love pumpkin bisque since we had it years ago in Graz Austria and although it was good here, it was not what we expected for a bisque, not smooth and creamy. Definitely a... More

Thank you for your feedback. I’m glad to hear that your wife enjoyed her Red Snapper Lafayette. I can understand how our bisque would not be the same as what you had in Austria, as we are almost literally a world away but I hope you both enjoyed it. As for the Chicken Paillard, it is a very mild dish... More
