This popular eatery in Galveston's historic East End serves fresh, contemporary food—including some vegetarian dishes—in a hip, high-ceilinged dining room and on an outdoor patio. Wake up to a fluffy egg frittata or a homemade scone topped with whipped cream, or try a large gourmet salad for lunch. The grilled snapper with Parmesan grits is a hit in the evening.

Mosquito Cafe used to be one of my favorite places to dine. USED TO BE. Tonight I had the pork special. I paid twenty-two bucks for four postage-stamp sized pieces of pork (tender and tasty though they were) ONE SPEAR of broccoli (which took me four bites to finish - I counted), and ONE ICE-CREAM SCOOP DOLLOP of some box-flake mashed potatoes (I'm not kidding about the scoop - they were in that shape) which were lukewarm (I'm being kind) and were
only palatable after dipping them in the pork sauce, of which there was plenty (for once) as there was so little pork to soak it up... OH! How the mighty have fallen!

On our trip to Galveston, our B&B innkeeper suggested the Mosquito Cafe. When we got there, the owner found out it was our first time and gave us a fresh, out-of-the-oven savory scone with basil and goat cheese. It was terrific. Atmosphere is casual. Breakfast and lunch only. We are planning a trip back in August and that is high on our list to return to.
