This our local go to for breakfast or lunch when we're in Galveston. Counter ordering with food delivered to your table. Small place but service is generally rapid. Always good and service is excellent. Owner on site. Check it out.

We visit Mosquito Cafe frequently for breakfast and lunch. Those meals are very tasty and highly recommended. Dinner, on the other hand, has not been our favorite meal unless you want to order something safe like a burger or type meal. The true dinners such as meatloaf and fish were disappointing. The line to order goes fairly quick. There is... More

An intimate restaurant that has a several choices for lunch. Salads, pasta, burgers, and sandwiches. They also have specials every day. Lunch timecan be crowded, but the wait will be worth it.

If you go Tues - Friday, go AFTER 5:00 for the happy hour draft beer specials! $3.00 for a GIB Tiki Wheat is a great deal, or $10 for a bottle of wine. If you are hungry and poor, get the $5.00 turkey chili stuffed baked potato (Tues - Thurs only). We found the latter to be too much potato... More

I took my family to breakfast here and everyone loved it. Cute little place that makes you feel like a local. I have only ever been for breakfast but I have always loved everything I ordered. I highly recommend this place. Enjoy!

Been coming to Galveston for years. First time trying this restaurant. Food Really different, fresh and very tasty. The tacos (I had pork and spouse had beef) were delicious and had to get a doggie bag as 3 heaping tacos each was a lot to eat in one sitting. Loved their flavored teas. Never heard of papaya and mint decaf--but... More

We waited in quite a slow line here to get our food but the management was attentive and helpful and the food is the best we had in the area. Fresh and generous. They have a large and diverse menu and delicious desserts. My one complaint is the seating. They asked us to sit in an upstairs area that was... More

The food is always good and I have never had any complaints until our recent visit. I had the roasted chicken salad and there was so much... More
