Good little place for a great breakfast!

Awesome coffee, good selection of breakfast dishes - great service in a cleverly done little spot! We had the eggs Bet-C, and the big breakfast - the addition of Apple Pecan salad was lovely.

I got here right as the doors opened, and it proved to be a good idea. Within 15 minutes, the place was packed. Ordered tomato soup, DELISH on the rainy, chilly day. Also ordered a Thai chicken salad, a huge portion I could not finish. I did have to remind someone of my salad, which was slow in coming, but... More

I ordered the grilled shrimp tacos and they came with a very delicious chipotle sauce. The brown rice and flavorful black beans rounded out this meal nicely.Those tacos were soooo good!

Food is always great. Menu is somewhat limited, but everyone in our party can always find something they love. Save room for dessert or get some lemon cake to go. They have a nice little patio and I recommend sitting outside when the weather is nice. Prices can be a bit high as in any tourist town.

The restaurant is at a great location, when you want to discover Galveston's attraction you can reach Bishop's palace in walking distance. The atmosphere at Mosquito's was great, the staff was pleasant and friendly. They serve a acceptable amount of vegetarian dished, however the pasta needed to be spiced up. All in all, nice place to be recommended.

During January of 2015, I and my wife visited Mosquito Cafe on the advice of a nice fellow who owns an excellent BrewPub called Galveston Island Brewing. Our party of four went for lunch at the Mosquito and were disappointed with the service and some of the dishes. I wrote of that experience on Tripadvisor. My wife suggested we try... More

You have to try the breakfast. It is awesome. We have eaten here every summer for the last few years when we were on vacation and it is hands down the best.

We went into the Mosquito Cafe based upon recommendation by our daughter. We went in to have a local craft beer and reconnoiter the place. We were greeted upon entry by one of the staff who gave us menus and pointed out the chalkboard for additional selections. They looked outstanding, including stuffed marinated portobello mushroom, sockeye salmon, mushroom brandy soup,... More

Apparently breakfast is where this cafe really shines and a look at the breakfast menu did make me want to come back. Nevertheless we came for dinner and it was just fine. My husband ordered (at the counter) the Mac and cheese, which was delicious but nothing really ruins Mac and cheese, right? The portion was large and it came... More

Thank you for your feedback. We are so pleased that you enjoyed all of your food; however, we are confused as to why our restaurant’s setup would warrant a three-star rating. Our prices reflect the high quality ingredients we use to prepare our wonderfully delicious food, which you tasted and we’re happy to see, you acknowledged. Confusion aside, we hope... More

Walked in and wasn't sure how to order or where to go and it took a few minutes for someone to come tell us. Wasn't a big deal since they were not very busy and they were helpful. Had the Mosquito Benedict and it was amazing! Cheesy grits on the side and they were to die for!! My husband had... More
