I can easily say that this is probably the best breakfast I have ever had. I had the berries and cream French toast, super delicious. The whipped cream I believe was homemade and was very yummy. The French toast are amazing. The Scrambled eggs with...More

This restaurant is "off the beaten path", but WELL worth the trip! They offer homemade baked goods, fresh baked breads, and cook every order TO ORDER! I had their combo platter of pancakes, eggs and sausage. ShyKatz take on the dish: the sausage is crumbled...More

Great atmosphere and very good food. Service ranges from good to excellent. It's a must stop, especially for breakfast when we're on the island.

They have a fried PB&J that I heard was very good. I didn't try it, but I would love to next time I go. Most things on the menu were yummy comfort food, but the fried PB&J stood out.

We had a great experience and enjoyed a savory breakfast. It was possibly the best French Toast I have eaten! The decor is eclectic and simple, and the food is wonderful. The staff was friendly and it was not crowded on a Tuesday morning.

We discovered this charming place three years ago and it's now our tradition to have breakfast here on the last morning of our Galveston trips. Located in a residential area, it has a welcoming "neighborhood" feel that can't be duplicated by chain restaurants. Eclectic decor,...More
