I enjoyed this quaint cafe which was away from the touristy noise of the seawall. Staff was helpful when asked for suggestions as to menu choices. My party ordered from the regular menu, dinner specials menu and kids menu and all selections were very generous portions served piping hot. I had a taste off of everyone's plate at my table and was not disappointed with the fresh tasting selections, including the scrumptious desserts. Will make this a regular stop on my future trips to Galveston.

After an absence of about two years, we ventured forth to Galveston for the long 4th of July weekend. Friday morning, we went to the Mosquito Cafe and had a delightful breakfast. Although be prepared to wait. I should add the line was out the door but it was worth the wait. Had a delightful conversation with a visitor from California who was in for a wedding. Great coffee, good conversation, laid back atmosphere, cute place, what else can one say!!! Oh yeah, I think the prices are reasonable for fresh hot food.

Prefer to sit at a table instead of waiting in line to place an order. But the food was very good. Looking forward to going back.

Thank you for your feedback and for choosing to dine with us! After you have ordered and got your first drink it is our staffs’ goal to tend to your every need so you don't have to get up for anything except a trip to the restroom. We are considered modified counter service meaning we're a hybrid of traditional wait staff and self serve counter service, leaning more on the wait staff side of service. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to your next visit!

Ate at Mosquito Cafe after a recommendation.
Was hoping to make it for breakfast, but missed the 11am cutoff.
Had sandwiches and burgers and was very pleased. Burgers slightly overcooked but very flavorful.

Only issue this place has is handling crowds lined out the door. Sort of a little rude to folks about keeping the door closed and the table by the door was practically unusable with poeple leaning against it waiting.
Also felt the processing of folks in the line was sort of slow.

But food was good, and place just seemed to need work on handling the large crowds that seem to be there quite often.
Will go there again, and try to make breakfast which is supposed to be real good.

Thank you for your feedback and for your business. You'll definitely have to come back and have breakfast you won't be disappointed! My apologies on your burger, our goal is to make sure you are 100% satisfied so please let us know if we've fallen short and we will make it right for you. We try to politely inform our guests the importance of keeping the front door closed (keeping the A/C indoors and the flies outdoors). Unfortunately we cannot speed up the ordering process because our tiny kitchen would not be able to keep up with the high volume. We try to hustle and work as efficiently as possible to make sure that every guest has a wonderful experience. Our staff works on the line to make your experience enjoyable and pass quickly. Like I said you won't be disappointed with breakfast and we hope to see you again soon, thank you!
