Mosquito Benedict - that is all you need to know! Other items on the menu are fabulous as well, but you will not find this particular taste bud experience at any other place. Reasonable, great atmosphere, on weekends go early, or be patient and wait, the experience is well worth it.

We ate here our third (and last) night in Galveston. Wish we had gone there sooner. Reasonable prices, very ample portions, and very good food.

Myself and 3 girlfriends went here recently for breakfast. We went on a Thursday morning around 9 and had no trouble getting a table. You order at the counter, you are given a number, and then your food is brought to your table. Everything on the menu sounds absolutely delicious . It was hard to decide so everyone in our... More

This is a taste treat. Great food, great wine. The menu is unique with flavors that are special to Mosquito. We search for places that are local and creative. This is a winner. Went here for spring break. We will be back.

Mosquito Cafe is by FAR my favorite place to dine in Galveston. The menu is so eclectic from sandwiches, salads and soups to things like Shrimp and Cheese Grits, meat loaf, and Senegalese Vegetables. The ambiance is very cool. Kind of beach meets shabby chic. You order at the counter and they bring the food to your table for you.... More

This is where the locals go. Nice menu choices. Services is exceptionally friendly and the food is wonderful. Had the turkey burger and simply pasta with chicken at our table. Very good. Watched several orders going out and want to try them all. Definitely will return.

I recommend the chili. It was very good and quite filling. I was at UTMB and walked over for a quick lunch and was not disappointed. Food was great, atmosphere was nice, and the staff was friendly.

We walked from our cottage to the Mosquito Cafe for lunch. This was rated high on Trip Advisor and a recommendation from the owner of our cottage. We had the fish special, shrimp tacos and chili and all were great. If we had time, we would have went again!

Amazing food, great prices. Taste of the highest standards. Eclectic menu, assortment of foods from American, Italian, Salads, veggies, etc. Only reason not a 5, and a 4 is because it's not full service. Lines to enter were so long it was going well outside the entrance. Tip: try to get here outside of typical lunch or dinner hours, so... More
