My family stopped at Mosquito Cafe, a regular stop on trips to Galveston, for breakfast. Our previous visits were for dinner. Breakfast was delicious. Eggs with shrimp and grits was perfect. Grits were creamy and smooth, eggs were cooked properly, and shrimp were tender. Coffee...More

Good food in a low-key environment. Ingredients seem fresh. Service was fast. We had burgers, the goat cheese salad, and a turkey sandwich and everyone liked their meal. The only [minor] issue I had was that they didn't have gluten-free bread of any kind.

This restaurant is consistently delicious. Rather small but there is a back patio. Get there early to get a seat inside.

Bagels & lox were great!! All food items looked wonderful & everything was very large portions, enough for 2 people to split.

Everything I've ever had here has been wonderful. Don't let the long line fool you - it goes fast and your order is fast and delicious. Been there for breakfast and lunch, all yummy!

Our family enjoyed this cafe. It was challenging to park and it was crowded with a line out the door to order. However, the food was quite good. We cleaned our plates! I’m sure we’ll go there again next time we are in Galveston.

I was a little hesitant about this place since we had to wait in line to order our breakfast. The couple in front of us took a really long time to order, wanting to make a lot of changes in their selection. Thankfully, our food...More

Mosquito Cafe has deliciously flavored dishes in a casual setting just a few blocks from the Strand area. They have a wonderful-sounding breakfast menu, though we have never been there at breakfast to enjoy them. Their lunch is perfect. They have sandwiches, salads, and burgers...More

When we were there in March, there wasn't a play area for kids. Just indoor seating and a patio outside in the back for seating as well.
