Nice Patio – A nice patio on those cool nights, but lives up to its name in the summer! Decent wines, salads and sandwiches. Order at the counter then fetch your food. Pretty small indoor dining area, best for small parties. Comfortable no-rush island atmosphere.
Great food in an casual setting - Open again – My wife and I have been waiting since Ike for the Mosquito Cafe to re open - and now they have! Had breakfast there on Saturday. Food was as great as I remembered.
my favorite eatery south of Houston! – My family and I were in Galveston this past summer and asked a few locals where to eat on the island - every single person we asked mentioned this restaurant as being their favorite. We were far from disappointed - their unique menu featured great salads all with homemade dressings, one of the best burgers any of us had ever had, and a number of other items our group had a chance to try and loved! I would recommend this place to anyone AND everyone who appreciates good food!
Freshness and ambience are noted draws for this bistro in the historic district. – The Scene
Urban escapees, bleached-blond locals and foreign-tongued tourists swarm this chichi coffeehouse nestled in Galveston's historic district. They've heard about the lovable modern-American menu with rotating chalkboard specials and fruitfully garnished plates, plus thoughtful extras like myriad javas, flavored teas and just-baked pies and scones served with lightly sweetened whipped cream.
Pining for breakfast? Fuel up with the inventive egg-less Mosquito Benedict (a savory scone layered with portobello, shrimp, artichoke hearts, asparagus and serrano hollandaise) or the fluffy, golden egg frittata, piquant with roasted corn and tingling green chilies. Regulars smitten with the BLT should also get a handful of the Mambo roasted pork with chutney on toasted focaccia. West Coast-style entree salads and deep plates of pasta are just as energized.
Friendly with great food. – We had dinner here and was so impressed we came back for breakfast. The food was different and delicious. It made you feel you were a regular in a small time cafe. Despite being rated as not kid friendly, my 12 year old was the one who suggested returning there! It is one of those restuarant that when you hear someone is going to Galveston, you would recommend it.
Good veggie food in a world of mediocre seafood. – Mosquito Cafe is a rare find in Galveston. The food was delicious and there were plenty of vegetarian options. I had some sort of pesto salad that was more than I could eat. The blueberry tea was a hit with me and my friends because it tasted like pancakes. The restaurant is cozy, cute, and attractive. The sangria's pretty good too. It's a little bit expensive, but not outrageously so, and it's worth the price. I'd go back here if I visited Galveston again.
Originality at its best! – This is a very cute and comfortable restaurant nestled in a neighborhood. We were slightly confused about the service until we realized that we needed to order at the counter. We got the Mosquito Benedict and the pancakes. Every bite of the benedict was a surprise. It tasted very fresh. The pancakes were perfect. The portions were huge and definately worth every penny. The menu was a delight and the vegetarian selection is wonderful. It's a fresh change from the typical island food. We are looking forward to going back for lunch.
Vegetarian Haven! – This is one of the few places on the island to eat if you prefer vegetarian cuisine. What's great is the fact that ANYONE can eat there. The health nut is a revolving dish that usually includes grilled veggies, brown rice and black beans. The goat cheese salad is wonderful, and the service is always tops. I love coming to this place, but can only do it every once in a while because the prices are pretty steep - expect to pay at least $8 at lunch. Otherwise, it's wonderful. They even have a cute patio outside and a small meeting room upstairs for office parties.
Fresh and great tasting! – I have never eaten something from Mosquito that I didn't like. From the chick stack, to the breakfast bowls, to the delicious scones-- everything is wonderful. The service is fantastic. The only reason I don't eat here more often is the price.
Not a 9+ – Well-run for Galveston. Certainly they express a certain originality, which isn't always a good thing, mind you. Probably one of the few healthy choices in town.
