Nice and simple

Heard about it and wanted to check it out as you should. It was fun, simple and really good food. I would not say the food was outstanding but it was very good. In fairness I only had the Thai salad but the others I were with had a sandwich and a pasta dish and all felt it was really... read more

I had the Caesar salad with chicken and it was delicious! My mom had the lox and she raved about it. We arrived at 2:15- they closed at 3:00; however, they starting cleaning up and putting things away at 2:45. This made us uneasy like we needed to hurry up and finish. This being said- the food was so good... More

Went along to the Mosquito Cafe for breakfast based largely on reviews found here on Trip Advisor. But of mixed picture to be honest. Nice decor & food was fine. Problem we had was with the staff who didn't seem to be in the slightest bit interested. Walked in & were handed a couple of menus by a staff member... More

Easy to locate. Small parking lot in the rear and off the street parking. How crowded it is depends on the day and time. We had lunch there on a Sunday for noon and the line waved outside with a long wait. Then we stopped in on a Wednesday at 1:30pm and no one was in line. You order at... More

We had lunch here while on a road trip back to Dallas. The first thing I noticed was the great location and the quaint restaurant. It's close to downtown without being in the middle of the chaos. The staff were friendly. The restaurant was clean and nicely decorated. I ordered the spinach pasta. The food was out fairly quickly and... More

My family drove from Tomball to Galveston for me to have my Mother's Day lunch here. It's where I bring anyone visiting us and where we go if we are in Galveston. They ate here for the first time and enjoyed everything they ate.

Treated my Wife and Mom to lunch Saturday. Mom had never had Mosquito Cafe so we decided to stop in. Super veggie burger and salad, and the morning glory muffin was spot on! Get there early as there can be a line!

Lovely menu. The goat cheese salad is my favorite. I always make it a point to eat here at least once every time I visit. There is a lunch rush... so be prepared.
