I had a great meal - a fish dish with two sides. Don't know which I liked better. The sole was cooked just right, tasty sauce - a really nice dish. But the sides were wonderful! The chinese noodles and broccoli salad were better than a desert (and the cookie was mighty fine)!

Everything is super fresh and very tasty. I love the Ahi tuna salad, it is amazing. I have also tried the homemade chicken salad sandwich. I can't go and not get the Ahi Tuna Salad. Must have!

I once lived on the Island, and after discovering the Mosquito Cafe, we generally ate breakfast there every Sunday morning, and ate dinner there occasionally. I've never had a bad meal there. During a recent visit to the Island, I ate breakfast there twice and I wasn't disappointed. I was very pleased to learn that they now have a choice... More

If you like to eat out of the tourist area and find a great place to eat, then this is the place to eat in Galveston. The staff are great, great atmosphere and the service is quick. The food is awesome I had the Stuffed Pork Tenderloin Spinach and goat cheese stuffed pork tenderloin topped with Bearnaise sauce served with... More

Immediately upon entering the cafe I was greeted and shown to a table. The decor is quite homey and has a cheerful effect. Only one other table was occupied when I arrived at about 9 on a weekday morning. I placed an order for French toast, peppered bacon, OJ, and a hot tea, for which I paid just under 20.00.... More

I have eaten here several times and am always pleased! I eat here every time I am in town! Kind, friendly staff will advise you about Amy food concerns you might have. The quiche was tall, light and soooo yummy!

Mosquito Café was a refreshing break after terrible false advertising at Mario's Seawall and horrible customer service. The service was great, the line to order was definitely worth the wait. I recommend the Mosquito Benedict; it was absolutely delicious. I also tried the lemonade cake which was sweet, rich, and made me do a few extra minutes of exercise. Very... More

Love...love breakfast here!! The French Toast is excellent! The peppered bacon is very good. My husband ordered a breakfast combo that included eggs. He does not eat eggs so he told them to not give him the eggs so they put lots of extra bacon! We were very impressed!

Been to Galveston many times but first time I've ever heard of or eaten at Mosquito Cafe. Glad I live 300 miles away or I'd weigh 100lbs more than I'm suppose to. HUGE quantity and delicious food.

The Mosquito serves breakfast and dinner too, but lunch is the most bustling. When the weather is nice, the patio is a peaceful oasis - in walking distance from the medical center, it is a popular place for a respite for the academics and clinical staff. The specials include daily "health nut" options that are often vegan - so vegans... More
