Don't go to Galveston without eating here. Honestly I have only had breakfast here but it is so wonderful I can't imagine anything here being anything but wonderful. My husband even if a hotel offers free breakfast pass on it and come here.

When we were there in March, there wasn't a play area for kids. Just indoor seating and a patio outside in the back for seating as well.
