I Would Eat Here Every Day If I Lived In Galveston!

This is the best restaurant, bar none, on Galveston Island. The food is freshly prepared, they offer a wonderful breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. The prices cannot be beat.

I went with a large family group. As soon as we walked in there was a very uncomfortable feel. The restaurant was empty and It took a few min for us to be seated and the table to be cleared. The staff with the exception on 1 woman were unfriendly. We were never waited on and the food was so... More

We chose this restaurant for the unique offerings they have. We each tried a different entrée. I had the BLT on the croissant - great taste, but very little mayo, and the roll was dry. The other selections were the Simply Pasta - excellent flavor, well seasoned; and the Island shrimp sliders that are excellent. But the Lemonade Dream Cake... More

Kudos to the Mosquito Cafe for their somewhat fusion menu. Taste abounds in everything from burgers to shrimp sandwiches. Although it can be very busy the deli style line moves at a fast pace and the food arrives promptly. Servers are very attentitive and seem to enjoy their jobs. Casual atmosphere adds to the meal and food allergy awareness at... More

You order at the counter and they bring your meal to the table. Everything was delicious! Great salads and sandwiches. They have some unusual flavored iced teas. Save room for dessert!

Went for late weekend lunch as line to this smaller restaurant could be long. Just outside of the downtown area, menu changes daily but very relaxed atmosphere. Modern take on old menu item and presentation. Prices were acceptable for portions. The make everything from scratch.

Fantastic fresh food. They have several vegetarian options on the menu. Everything is so fresh. All of the baked goods are supplied by Patty Cakes Bakery from across the street so make sure you save room for desert.

Quaint little coffee shop. Have your standard fare for breakfast. What more could you ask for the first meal of the day?

The Turkey Divinity sandwich was pretty darn good. Loved the Asian noodles and Asian slaw sides. My daughter had the Shrimp Sliders, and didn't really care for them - but a I am sure others would love them. My Island Slammer (shrimp, bacon, cheese sandwich) was fantastic! There Lemon Bars and Lemonade Cake were also too good to be true!... More

We got there just before the Noon crowd. Good thing. It was May and they had their seasonal shrimp salad. I found it so so. A bland mayo salad with shrimp. My husband had the fish tacos and he enjoyed them. Parking is limited.
