This was our second visit; the first was great. We were able to park across the street. Our wait time, in line, was about 10-minutes - totally worth the wait. I had one of the Specials - grilled Red Fish, with two sides Apple/Salad (super dressing), and Thai Noodles...a WOW! My wife had the Shrimp Cake Sliders with tossed salad;... More

Mosquito Cafe is an other hidden gem of the Hisoric District of Galveston, Texas. The set up is very informal. You find a table, are given a menu, go up to the counter and order & your meal is delivered to your table. The food is home cooked quality and very delicious.

Great food and very clean. The employees were great and helpful. Even gave us the last piece of lemon cake at the end of the night it was delish! Highly recommend the maple cookies!

Variety of food and drink. Tap beer and a great menu. Salads, wraps and sandwiches but the best item is the turkey chili with a large cornbread beaked into the middle of the generous bowl.

Although I normally do not like to go to establishments with no wait staff. This is a little different. Although you must wait in line to order and pay, it is fun to stop here. Food is wonderful and the staff that takes it from the order line is great. Really, really good food. Not your run of the mill... More

Neat place in quiet neighborhood, good food and friendly staff. Worth the visit! A bit pricy for breakfast, and you order at counter, however food is brought to you.

This was an easy review to write. We went for breakfast this morning. The service is counter order but the employees are nice and helpful. I had huevos rancheros which were really good (add the green chili it's a tasty kick) comes with potatoes and they were perfectly crisped. Kid had the French Toast and ate it in less than... More

Mosquito Cafe is a small restaurant with an eclectic menu located in a quiet neighborhood in the historic area of Galveston. Breakfast is great, but we mostly visit for lunch. They have a fairly wide variety of lunch items. It's an order at the counter, pay at the counter, they serve you the food kind of place. It's quite cute... More

Great lunch options especially salads and sandwiches. You must stand in line, review menu, then place your order, then find a place to sit, which can be tough. They do have an open patio area but it was too chilly during our visit. I can recommend the Thai Chicken Salad and my sister had the Chinese Chop Salad. Sandwiches looked... More
