You can have a drink on the roof of the Tremont and see all of Galveston and listen to their music (not live, but excellent selections)

We had lunch at the cafe while staying in the hotel. The food was delicious and the staff were very helpful. The flatbread was very good as well as the soup and cheese sandwich.

This $30 breakfast lasted us the entire day, so although wildly overpriced, it was both lunch and breakfast, so who am I to complain? It was very tasty, too, with Starbucks coffee.

Quaint place in the Tremont House Hotel. Mostly sandwiches or things that can be heated in the microwave. There are better places for a good lunch nearby.

Good sandwiches, decent menu. Not sure it's worth going out of the way for, except maybe just to view the Texas-sized cinnamon roll--which I thought was a cake. Manager said only one person has finished it all, to her knowledge. And I guess they've removed the body....

Right next to reception is the Cafe which has a very pleasant atmosphere and two computers for guest use as well as wifi. All the meals I had I enjoyed and felt the selection was very good and priced reasonably, especially the soups.

We had the egg croissant and the quiche with fresh fruit. Both were wonderful. The price was a little hiigh but we splurged on the convenience. Also had the Starbucks later on that day.

Three of us had a late dinner here on 9/22. Although we arrived 10 minutes before closing, the staff was very attentive and did not rush us. The chicken pot pie and spicy chicken wrap were tasty and fairly priced.

My trip to the rooftop was so enjoyable. My server Claire was so nice and outgoing, and Daniel was very time efficient with making drinks. They also provided complimentary trail mix that was the perfect snack with the drinks. I would recommend this place to anyone, and will definitely visit again.
