This quaint bistro atmosphere has a unique menu of delicious food. Near downtown and close to shopping. Great for brunch, lunch or afternoon dining. Has outdoor dining, as well.

We so enjoyed the soup and sandwich we had when Glen and I rode our bikes over to this cafe that we had heard about from friends in Austin. It is a delightful cafe and the servers are very attentive.

This has been a routine stop when in Galveston for quite some time. We walked in this Saturday morning to a very offensive smell that I could not put my finger on. I almost turned around and left, but attributed it to my very sensitive smell and continued on, not mentioning it to my partner. There was an issue with... More

We came across this cafe while on holiday . It was full of locals at lunchtime so we had a cake and a coffee. We noticed they did evening meals so decided to come back. However we were disappointed with the food and service. You have to order at the counter and they deliver the food to your table. We... More

This was our off the ship lunch before we got on the road home. Pleasant variety of choices. Meals were very large. Desserts were excellent. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

For many years I have been trying to find decent food in Galveston. My daughter found this on line and we were all glad that she did. The food was good. The best selection of deserts in a restaurant. If they are busy, parking can get a little difficult but it is worth it. I recommend that you give this... More

So when we drove by it again and there were only two people outside, we stopped in for brunch. There was plenty of free parking in the back, so I guess most walked, as the line actually had 10 folks or so already inside. One must order at the counter before finding a table. They were very flexible with the... More

Mosquito is one of our favorite places in town. They consistently have the best burgers I have had on the Island, and their specials are almost always great. In fact, in at least 30 visits, I cannot remember a single negative experience. My only (very minor) complaint is that they don't serve fries. I really love fresh hand cut fries... More

Delicious! We are here for breakfast and the food was delicious and there is a lot of it! A real treat and a real variety of breakfast treats. Will eat here again next time I am in Galveston.
