Real coffee

I love a good espresso based coffee. And when I travel I search for good coffee but do not often find what I am looking for. Mod coffee made my coffee so well it warrants a great review!

The last time I was there was on Fat Tuesday. It was cold outside and the place was busy but certainly not slammed. I ordered two Lattes. It took them forever to get the orders out and appeared they were just screwed up. Anyway, they made the latte's right there in front of me and the steamed milk was warm... More

We visited and were a little taken aback by the service. The baristas were snobby and rude. Be aware that the coffee is quite a bit oilier than most, of course this depends on your preference. Not a great experience.

Wanted a break from doing nothing much and the GPS pointed us to this location. Big selection of coffee, tea, smoothies and other specialty drinks. Small selection of stuff to eat. Indoor & outdoor seating. Nice place to hang out with family and friends.

Their coffee is so so.. but they are still the best coffee shop in the island. No or very little food choices. I wish that they would serve quiche or soups..

This is a great friendly café serving excellent coffee. It is clearly a favourite with a regular local clientele. What appeals to me is that it is a good contrast with the slightly uptight, conservative feel of central Galveston.

MOD has a reputation for some really great coffee drinks. It can get very busy and lines can get a little long but even during big events you never wait more than ten or fifteen minutes in line. But there is a reason people wait...it's great!

Love the place, only complaint is I wish they toasted the bagels for you, I don't like having other people handling a toaster over...you never know when they might get burned, etc and then you stick your bagel/toast in ...yuck... other than that, the place is wonderful. Coffee/tea selection is out of this world.
