Looking for some recommendations for breakfast in Galveston. Prefer the Strand but looking for any recs.

    Locals enjoy the Sunflower Bakery and Cafe. Another popular spot is the Mosquito Cafe.

      We just ate at the Sunflower Bakery & Cafe today for lunch. In looking over the menu the breakfast offerings appear to be top notch with a wide selection. I recommend it. I was going to have an all-day breakfast but then was surprised they had a rare for Texas Pork "T" sandwich - that's a fried pork tenderloin sandwich I pursue.

      The historic Star Drugstore near the Strand is another place I liked for breakfast. It is more a restaurant than a drugstore.

        Both excellent choices, but a lesser known venue is Bistro Le Croy around the corner from Rudi and Paco's on 21st.

        They have half a dozen eggs benedict take offs. Many are on a fried green tomato in place of the normal muffin. I had the one with spicy shrimp.

        This is weekend only I believe.

      La Estacion for giant breakfast burritos on house-made tortillas. It's on Ball Street, about half a mile from the Strand.

        I am admittedly biased in favor of old hotels, so I'd at least check out the Galvez and the Tremont to see what they have to offer.
