Our waitress from Katie’s recommended we try ShyKatz for breakfast this morning. It did not disappoint. I had the saddlebag. Which is a pancake with bacon and sausage in the batter and eggs on top. All of it was great. My husband had the granny’s...breakfast. Pancakes were great.More

The cinnamon roll pancakes was a hit…we split it 4 ways. The servings were very generous and there were lots of choices. The setting is really cute. I really wanted a piece of cake for later, as the desserts looked amazing.

Shykatz has great breakfast and lunch. Affordable prices. Fantastic pastries and desserts. We will make this a regular stop when we visit Galveston. I have already passed the info to others to enjoy. Not far from the seawall-it is a cozy place with great tasting...food. I would recommend Shykatz.More

Friendly staff and delicious food! Everything we got was awesome and the food portions where generous. We ate here twice on vacation because the first trip was so good. They have a large menu with tons of options so there should be something for the...whole family.More

There is nothing I can write to do the food justice! We ate breakfast there everyday while on vacation except the one day they were closed. I ordered the migas everyday. One of my gkids ordered pancakes and bacon everyday. My husband & another gkid...had something different everyday and every one of us agreed the food was magnificent, wonderful, delicious! Everything tasted so fresh. I told my husband the migas tasted like they have their own garden of vegetables. Everyone was very friendly. It was our must go to place everyday for breakfast while we were there.More

Small place, walk up ordering, great menu, plenty of seating, if you get there early. Sticky tables from all that syrup. Might be time to place some plexiglass or glass on the tables-easier to clean and sanitize. We have been a number of times and...have always enjoyed our food. Super yummy place.More

We were in town visiting family and they took us here for lunch on the first day. Way to set expectations for the rest of the weekend. I had the chicken sandwich and the flavor was amazing. The service was great and the place is...a nice little locals place with great ambiance. If you are in Galveston definitely stop in and try them out. I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.More

Delicious, great atmosphere, good prices! The food is soooo tasty and huge servings. We had the tostadas and migas and pancake with the bacon inside. I had to bring half my migas home and I am a big eater. Love the coffee. The decor is...so fun. Cute signs all over the place.More

This is a rather quirky cafe that has an extensive menu for breakfast and lunch. It is cat-related as there appeared to be food and water put out for several cats, but we did not see them. Portions are sizeable and the food is good....A bit expensive in my opinion but not too bad. Off the main drag in a residential neighborhood but not hard to find.More

Staff was not very friendly or welcoming. It would be nice if staff would ask if guest if it's their 1st-time dining and explain that it is basically "serve yourself". When ordering I was asked if I wanted something to drink, I stated water. When...the man brought the food I mentioned the water, he said I needed to get it myself inside, I then asked for silverware and napkins, I was firmly told that I needed to get them myself "by the cups". He did enlighten me on how to get my water from the soda machine. The food was good, however was barely warm. I had the Katastrophic, the gravy was good but the shredded cheese wasn't melted and my husband's french toast was also just warm.More

First time in Galveston, and this place is a hidden treasure! ShyKats is buried in a residential area (3 blocks from our Airbnb rental) and is fantastic! We were there at 10:30am on a Saturday and could tell it was full of local regulars. We...had huevos rancheros and the French toast and it was way too much good for two people. We were too full to have dessert, but will go back tomorrow and eat dessert first!More
