There’s no shortage of decadent dining in Galveston, but our team here at Soar Vacation Rental Services enjoys the quaint cafes and casual downhome eateries most of all. Here are a few of our favorite spots, in no particular order!
ShyKatz – This East End deli and cafe serves baked goods, all-day breakfast, and lunch options like burgers and gourmet salads. Reviews have ranked this gem as the 10th best local eatery on TripAdvisor.
Old Moon Deli & Pie – Located in the heart of historic downtown Galveston, this quaint deli is among the best-rated lunch spots on the island, coming in with 5 stars on TripAdvisor and 4.8 on Google. It goes without saying that they offer phenomenal pies and sandwiches, but it’s also worth noting the organic, vegan, and vegetarian options.
Mosquito Café – Another East End gem located in a restored 1870 location, Mosquito Café features an eclectic mix of homemade American eats and a casual, dog-friendly patio. It comes in as number 7 on TripAdvisor’s list of local eateries, according to reviews.
Mama Teresa’s Flying Pizza – No list is complete without a pizza joint, and Mama Teresa’s has been a Gulf Coast favorite since the ‘80s, relocating from Bolivar to downtown Galveston after Hurricane Ike. Coming in at number 5 on TripAdvisor’s list, it’s a must-do if authentic pizza is your thing.
Sunflower Bakery – Heading back over to the East End, Sunflower Bakery features brunch, lunch, and dinner-type entrees, including fresh Gulf seafood. Boasting that 99% of its food is made from scratch with fresh, local ingredients, this popular café and bakery makes the grade with 4.5 stars on TripAdvisor and 4.4 stars on Google.
Shrimp 'N Stuff – A 2017 winner for best seafood in the county, this area favorite is located in midtown Galveston. Featuring a robust seafood menu, including from-scratch gumbo, “to-die-for” shrimp tacos, and their famous fried shrimp, this establishment is a must for the seafood lover.
