Had lunch here on our trip to Galveston. Both the wife and I had burgers that were good she ordered a cup of chicken tortilla soup as well and it was very good, different than any that I have had before as it had a chicken stock base. The atmosphere is what made the place, the waitress was friendly and... More

Our cruise was delayed due to fog closing Galveston Port. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast and loved this little gem. That's to fog we found it and loved it. Great staff. Delicious food. Recommended.

The beach was across the street. On Sunday morning, we woke for breakfast. I searched Trip Advisor for the top breakfast spots in Galveston. We... More

I was very excited to try it out since its look was so eclectic. Needless to say it's just another tourist ripoff. The pancake I ordered tasted... More

I live this place. You can either sit at a table or sit at the counter. Sitting at the counter let's you watch as they prepare your meal. Couldn't decide on which sandwich, all sounded good, so had the Sandwich Sampler. The tuna salad, chicken salad and pimento cheese sandwiches that come on it were great. The banana split ordered...

Some friends told us to try breakfast here - what a gem! This little drugstore has overcome several hardships including a fire and Ike, but they have kept going! I had pancakes - two HUGE, light, fluffy creations and two huge rounds of sausage. Delish! My friends had grits and bacon (creamy smooth grits, thick crispy bacon) and French Toast.... More

Line at the normal place was long so we checked this out. Perfectly good, decent food, fast service. Good alternative to the long lines with less fuss and great decor and easy atmosphere.
