MOD has excellent coffee and pastries and the staff are always very helpful and friendly. It also occupies a very nice cozy storefront and is a great place to sit and study while enjoying some delicious coffee. They also have a very nice sidewalk seating area with vine-covered pergolas - excellent for people-watching and enjoying that island breeze. The pumpkin... More

This is a local version of a Starbucks with a cozy and friendly atmosphere. Loved that they ask if you want your coffee in a mug and not just hand you a disposable one. Plenty of selection and fresh baked pastries. Sat outside, for the weather was ideal and noticed several people enjoying the morning. Really friendly staff. Great stop.

Pergolas out front are covered in growing ivy and greenery. This adds a gardenlike feel to the sidewalk outdoor seating areas. You will find this to be the perfect spot for sipping and working, or catching up with an old friend. People watching is an option to, as the windows are large floor to ceiling, and both indoor and outdoor... More

When at home I stop at my favorite (name brand) coffee shop and order a caramel macchiato, upside down, three Splendas, at 120. At MOD I didn't know how to order this. The young man asked me, what I usually drink at home, so I told him and he smiled and said, "Let me try something and if you don't... More

This coffee shop is really cute, with a lot of seating options inside and outside. Bagel was ok. Coffee was good. They had a lot of latte options and wish I had more time to try more.

Fast, friendly service, but let's be honest the coffee is so good I'd come back even if they were a little rude to me. Try the Hannibal Lecter Black-eye and stay awake for days!

Loved it. Daughter got a smoothie she loved it. I got the mint one iced. It was a new taste for me. Wife got a dirty chai. She loved it. I am a gold card member at starbucks but will start going here when in Galveston.

Hip place in the downtown area, Relax inside or on the front patio. The trees for shade and tables with umbrellas make an enjoyable relaxing atmosphere. A variety of cold and hot coffee drinks reasonably priced. They also have a nice selection of tasty sweets to accompany the wonderful coffee. This is a fun area near the Strand with shops,... More
