Great Food!

We came here for lunch. I had the Mahi with mango salsa and my friend had the pork sandwich. The service here is counter only; you order like at Starbucks, take a number, and they bring the food out when its ready. We sat outside on their patio--the weather was gorgeous and the food was very good... read more

First time for my wife and I along with another couple to visit for breakfast. A little pricey; however, the food was fresh and plentiful. She and I both enjoyed the traditional breakfast with 3 eggs, bacon, potatoes, and toast. First class! We also splurged for the pancakes. Wow, certainly more than we could eat altogether. We'll definitely be back.... More

Awesome breakfast! The line was long but it was worth the wait. We really enjoyed the food. I had the Eggs Benedict and my husband had the Breakfast plate. My son had the pancakes. All were excellent and the portions were large. We will visit again.

Fantastic gluten free breakfast bowl! What a great start to the day in Galveston Texas! Jamaican Coffee was great as well! Friendly service. Great salsa to top the bowl! See you there next time.

Quaint Galveston cafe located on 14th Street across from Patty Cakes Bakery. Follow the line to order at the counter, then bring your table number to your seat. Lots of food options to choose from...salads, burgers, pasta, sandwiches and desserts. Oversized portions of yummy food. Saturday and Sunday Brunch available. Well worth the wait in line!

This is a must for breakfast. They have breakfast bowls that can contain just about anything you want. The curstless quiche was very good. The plain ol' breakfast had eggs, either bacon or sausage with toast and a choice of sides. The pancakes are huge so you may want to share. One must place the order at the counter and... More

Sadly on our way out of town, we stopped at Mosquito Cafe for breakfast. Now knowing how wonderful it was, I'd wish we had gone for lunch as well earlier in our trip. The portions were large and the staff were nice. I had the Mosquito Benedict with the roasted potatoes over the homemade scone and it was perfect. My... More

Order at the counter & food is delivered to your table. Coffee is self-serve and excellent. Eggs Benedict on savory scone is great. Pancakes were light, fluffy. Breakfast was good.

During our last stay in Galveston we had dinner twice at Mosquito Cafe. Very good food in a casual setting for low prices. How about a bottle of house wine for $10? You place your order at the register, pay, take your number, find a table, and they bring your food when ready. Food is excellent also by the way.... More

My wife and I headed in for a brunch early in the week and were glad to see that there wasn't a wait. The food was amazing; fresh and plentiful plates in this place. Good coffee, too, in a casual, order at the counter, get your own coffee atmosphere. Tourists, locals, families and couples all seemed to be enjoying themselves... More
