This quaint cafe is located off the main strip and what a find! I ordered an appetizer that was large enough to be an entree. It was called Asian Shrimp Skewer and it was a great presentation. Description was large skewered shrimp atop Angel hair Pasta tossed with Tamari Sesame vinaigrette, Cilantro, Shredded carrots, red cabbage, and Thai Peanut Sauce. $9.89 This was a very large salad and worth every penny! Its one of those places where you go to the counter to place your order, pay for it, and they deliver to your table in a very timing manner. While I was ordering I noticed the beer on tap and couldn't decide which one I wanted so she let me try all of them! I decided on Shock Top, which is served with a shot of orange juice. Loved it! When and if you are in this area, this is a must stop. Check out my pics.

After three days of eating seafood, we needed something different. My husband and I split the most tasty blue cheese burger and our son had their turkey chili -- super-yummy! Freshly prepared and brought to our table by very friendly people. It's a place I'd eat at regularly, if I lived in Galveston.

We descended on Mosquito Cafe, all 6 of us on a rainy May day. It was our first visit, so their strange way of doing things, order and pay at the counter and then sit at a table threw me off a bit. But we would definitely go back in a heartbeat.....everything we ordered was well turned out.. Love the free refills on sodas and coffee. Soup of the day - Baked Potato - absolutely delicious, and hit the spot. Mambo sandwich - yummy.
Service, - friendly, warm and efficient

Thank you for your review and for your business! We are considered modified counter service which may throw our guests off a little but don't worry we'll take great care of you. After placing your order and getting your beverage its time to sit back, relax, and let us do the rest of the work. We deliver your wonderful fresh made to order entrees, provide your silverware, refresh your beverages, get any additional condiments or beverages, get dessert, pretty much we strive to fulfill any requests for our guests. Our premium fresh brewed coffees and teas as well as our sodas are all you can drink and our guests are welcome to take a to-go cup home. We're happy to hear that you'll be back to visit us, we hope to see you soon!

As one of the locals where to eat breakfast and you might get lucky and someone will tell you about Mosquito Café. We took the advice of our valet and boy are we glad! Had the best breakfast at a VERY reasonable price on the island! Large selection of fresh and seasonal items to please any pallet. Sometimes the line is long but moves quickly and has a great patio as well as inside dining. Can't wait to go back next time we are on the island!
