Had a great experience. Love latte's and the barista was very helpful in describing the options available, which were many. Ended up selecting the Rabbit and it was great! We sat outside and enjoyed the atmosphere. All in all, a great experience.

My husband and I went here on a date. The baristas were super helpful in telling us other fun places to check out in Galveston. Lattes were great! The atmosphere is fun and relaxing.

Always a pleasant experience. The coffee is good and the staff is polite. MOD gives you that small, local coffee bar feeling that Starbucks aims for but never reaches. Beat up furniture is not great for long stays, but there are plenty of med school students who will stay there despite that fact.

Very friendly staff. Great brewed coffee. The kids loved the carrot cake cookies & lemon bar. The decor is great and the sidewalk seating is great with shade but during July the a/c was a lifesaver. It feels like it dropped out Portland onto Galveston! Highly recommended.

When we are at the Galveston Art League we enjoy stopping in for a cup of coffee, a wrap, a muffin, cookie, or other sweets. This is a very relaxing coffee shop with ample seating in a comfortable atmosphere. Wi-fi is free. It is a great location to stop in if you need a re-energizing break while browsing the Strand...

This is a great coffee shop! There are so many choices. Sip your drink inside, on the patio or take it on a stroll around the historic Strand District.

Nothing gets you up in the morning like a great cup of coffee, which MOD coffee definitely has. However, MOD also has a nice flavor of 'home' to complement your coffee; it feels authentic. The staff is friendly, regularly chatting with locals who frequent the cafe often (there's a lot) or picking a conversation with a new face. It's a... More

Upon visiting this Cafe I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere, the very large and practical inside spaces and most of all for having a quite beautiful outside sitting tables. The service is the standard American self-service My visit was rather late in the morning (11:30AM) and so very few of the breakfast items were available. Will definitely return to... More

I enjoy a Starbucks but I enjoy even more quaint relaxing local coffee shops that make great coffee and chai. This was one of those places. This was mine and husband's morning hang out (while our teenagers slept in) every day of our vacay. It made our time in Galveston a little more special.
