This was the highlight of our Galveston trip. Both kids meals and adult entrees were excellent. The baked goods available for dessert were perfect. Highly recommend.

We weren't even hungry but knew we needed to eat dinner. So we came here. Had Napa salad and the Mambo sandwich with apple pecan side. Wow! So good! We ate it all! And the staff was so nice and friendly. Not too full, just right, even with the huge portions. Wish we had room for a dessert because they... More

This is a good cafe! However it is usually crowded and expensive. This is a great place for adults. I wouldn't take kids there though.

Food was just okay, nothing spectacular. Atmosphere was nice, but limited seating. I would have preferred ordering from a menu rather than standing in line to order.

I love corned beef (real stuff, not from a can), so I always look for restaurants with it when I travel. I found an article that mentioned that mosquito cafe has corned beef tacos and knew we had to visit. We were staying just a few blocks away so it was very convenient. The tacos were very filling, with corned... More

On a recent trip to Galveston we were seeking a special place to have breakfast. The tram tour guide recommended the Mosquito Cafe. We had a great breakfast and enjoyed the food. It was served fresh and hot out of the kitchen. You place your order as you come in the door and then they bring your meal to your... More
