When I heard about The Mod I became excited. I imagined a place with vespa’s parked outside, The Smiths playing inside and the local artist meeting place. Definitely not the case. The Mod is nice and certainly the best bet in the very confusing town of Galveston. A interesting clientele. Locals mixed with cruise ship passengers makes this a distant and friendly place. A cool brick interior decorated with interesting art on the walls. Sweet snacks, tea, wine are all served at the Mod. I forgot to jot down their machine, because I was to busy writing down their scary names for their coffee concoctions, A grasshopper, Almond Joy and Honeybee to name a few. I have to admit that this was the first time I had ever seen a Hello Kitty tattoo on a man, as he slammed my drink on the counter. The coffee was well over the 8 oz I requested and hotter then Mila Kunis eating ice cream. If this wasn’t the only game in town, I would not go here, but it is your only bet. It is a cool place, just not the best coffee.

I always stop at Pioneer when I am traveling through and am rarely dissapointed. Even though they have a rotating cast of barista’s, they all seem to pull great shots and I always leave glad that there is good coffee in such a small town. They roast their beans right in the shop and have halfway decent food. The ambiance is a little odd. I always feel like I am intruding on a yuppy convention. It seems to bring in older white folks who seem disgruntled and snobbish. Screw them! I get my coffee to go. For your sanity, I would not reccommend staying long.
