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.

This place has long been a favorite since they opened. Cute stuff on the walls. Excellent food. Incredible bakery. My newest review gives them a poor rating due to the fact that the last few times I have eaten there, the service has been really...More

After reading all the positive reviews on trip advisor for this out-of-the-way restaurant, I thought I would try it out. What a disappointment: I ordered the toasted cheese sandwich with tomato and a coffee. The toasted cheese sandwich was the worst I have ever had...More

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

We stayed across the street in the Lost Bayou Guesthouse and we were very happy we decided to try ShyKatz. Excellent Philly cheesesteak sandwich and my wife's reuben was possibly the best one she'd ever had. The breakfasts look fabulous as well. Quaint posters all...More

As always we found this gem using TripAdvisor. The parking is wonky but worth the stop. ShyKatZ is in the middle of a neighborhood. They offered friendly service along with good food. Cozy and quaint family owned restaurant. The biscuits were awesome. The french toast...More

This is a neighborhood deli with good fresh prepared food at average prices. There is a sign saying there could be long waits on weekends but there was no wait at 1:00 on Friday in July. Homemade cakes looked great but I did not sample....More
