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

Since we are in Galveston for the month a few of my peeps (teachers) decided to get to get together for lunch. It had been a while. We have been to the Cafe before and knew we would not be disappointed. One ordered Chicken Alfredo, one a delicious looking sandwich and I had the veggie omelet . . . WOW!... More

Went on sunday for brunch, great food and specials. Line moves fast so about 15 min wait is all. Fresh food, great friendly helpful staff, and nice outdoor patio. The Mosquito Bennedict was great, breakfast bowl is very large and tasty, and pancakes have a great flavor of their own!!

I was not sure what I wanted to eat, and the man behind us asked if I liked Mac and Cheese. Well, of course I do!! I ordered the Three Cheese Mac and Cheese and was so glad I listened to the suggestion of the locals. My brother in law had the meatloaf, which he loved. Their desserts are made... More
