We go here at least 6 times a year and live off the island. Fabulous, fresh food. Always delicious. Extensive menu of awesome choices. You won't be disappointed. Can eat indoors or out. Incredible desserts.

This place is a gem. It's got character and amazing food. It's a bit crammed and you may find a line out the door but trust me, it's worth it. Took a large group here and everyone was impressed.

This place is so cute. They offer gourmet food. My BLT was delicious. Their desserts were so tempting, but we were too full. This is a great place and a must see.

This is a "stand in line to order" restaurant. The line does get long on weekend mornings but seemed to move quickly. The pancakes were delicious. The bacon order is described as "a generous portion" so we ordered one to share and found that the portion was 3 slices, just the same as anyplace else.

I've visited the Mosquito Café twice on a couple of trips to Galveston - both times for breakfast. Breakfast is good - I've had the Breakfast Bowl and the Nancy Bet-C. Both were very good. But the best part is the baked goods and desserts. I've tried a few different desserts (I don't recall the names), but they've all been excellent.

The breakfast items are a little different so be sure to read the descriptions of the dishes so you don't end up surprised that your Eggs Benedict aren't like what you get at home. :-)

Plenty of seating inside and out - if sitting outside be prepared to battle the birds and flies, but the patio is nice and allows dogs.

Good food, great desserts, and beer on tap - I'll be back next time in Galveston.
