Nice sized portions and very tasty. Delicious breakfast bowl and pancakes were great as well. Service was very nice and line moved faster than expected.

You think the line to order will take awhile but it doesn't so wait! The food got to the table quick and was all so good! I got the veggie omelet and my kids got pancakes. Everyone enjoyed breakfast for sure!! Mimosas were good too!

The food is good but very over priced. I don't mind paying a little more for a specialty item or steak and shrimp; but, a hamburger or grilled cheese? Nope, way too high. My daughter's grilled cheese was not at all like the grilled cheese...More

Thank you for your feedback. Thank you for the compliment on our baked goodies. Just to clarify, our price point reflects the quality of the ingredients and massive amount of labor to prepare everything from scratch. The hamburger buns and sliced wheat bread were baked...More

Food was generous and beautiful to look at but tasted so-so. Bacon had great flavor but came out cold. Wheat toast was stale and chewy. Apple pecan salad was tasty, fresh, and long on apples but had just a smattering of tiny pecan and celery...More

Many interesting choices to choose from!! Many interesting flavors and combos! The bakery options upfront are also delicious! Staff was friendly, although we actually had a less attentive waitress/server than what we noticed at nearby tables. Mimosas were a bit inconsistent. Mine was much too...More

We went on the recommendation of a friend and it did not disappoint. There were traditional fare and then some really unique plays on the traditional. Loved the carafe of mimosas.

We have been to The Mosquito Cafe twice for lunch and once for weekend brunch. My husband loved the shrimp and grits. The crab cake sliders are delicious. Be prepared to wait in line during the lunch hour. The wait will be worth it!!

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.

Yes. There were several dogs on the patio. They provided water in a bowl for the dogs.

Thank you for your question. We try to do our remodeling at the end of August/beginning of September every year, never in March. We're not certain but those dates may be during our local spring break, which is a wonderful... More
