My wife and I actually had planned having breakfast at another location; but, due to the crowd there decided to find something else. That's when we stumbled upon the Mosquito Cafe and were we pleased we did. It was very crowded too (we thought as we walked) in and barely got in the door; but, about 10-15 minutes later folks...

We went here due to the great reviews. When we showed up there was a big line but we stuck it out and it was completely worth it! Great selection for lunch food. All sauces are in house made and delicious. Great character inside, with very attentive service. Got a Ceaser Salad with chicken and shrimp and it was probably... More

The best food we had during our stay! The menu is very creative and everything in our group of 6 was great. Turkey burgers are the best we have had, the regular burgers are gigantic, and the "almost Ruben" was very good. Deserts looked great too. The price was very affordable for the quality and quantity of the food.

This is a rather small restaurant with a large variety of offerings. You order at the counter and then your food is prepared and brought to you. My husband and I both had the Fish du Jour which was grilled redfish with a mango salsa. One of my sides was apple salad, but I can't remember the other. The fish... More

We went for breakfast had the shrimp and grits breakfast bowl: very generous portion, perfect combination of flavors. Also my son had the pancakes: "best he's ever had" (: It offers a combination of traditional breakfast items & some with a twist (on the healthy side) I found out that breakfast places are limited in Galveston but this one is...

This place was phenomenal for breakfast! We had the breakfast bowl and the shrimp and grits with eggs. The food was cooked and seasoned to perfection. The staff and service was super and my wife said they made the best tea she's had in a long time. Be prepared to wait in line to order, but it's well worth it.

My fiancé and I decided to try this place out after a friend had recommended it to us. The experience was fabulous. We were able to enjoy a calm relaxing breakfast outside and enjoy some great food.

This place is unique to Galveston! It has indoor and outdoor seating. The food options are wonderful! They have delicious fresh food that is cooked almost anyway but fried. Their salads and pasta bowls are so creative and tasty! I love visiting this place in the historic district!

The food here is always good but on busy Galveston weekends expect to wait forever. You order at a counter and then your food is delivered to your table. I will never understand why there is only one person with on register, especially during busy season. We had to wait 20 minutes just to place our order. All the while... More
