Founded in 2001, MOD enjoys a corner space along Postoffice Street in the heart of Historic Downtown Galveston. With a staple of Fair Trade, Organic coffee and teas, MOD strives to bring the best coffee, teas, espressos and home baked goods, and the warmest welcome every day. They also offer smoothies and Italian sodas as well as wine and beer.
MOD offers daily beer and wine happy hours, too. As of my writing this, there is not yet a menu available online, but it’s coming.
From the study loft, to the open air space with comfy chairs, to the cafe style room filled with mix and match tables and chairs, to the lovely arbor covered outdoor patio, MOD has a comfortable space for you to enjoy your drinks.
Art on the Walls is a MOD showcase for new local artists. Every six weeks a new artist is invited to display their work.
MOD hosts many more such entertaining and community-minded activities. Live music on the patio, poetry night (dates and times fluctuate), local artist and author exhibits, book groups, creative writing groups, a lovely arbor covered patio, study nooks, and free wi-fi. The folks at MOD recycle, too, having a special relationship with a local farm who takes used coffee grounds to mix into their fertilizers and soils.
Spaces are available at MOD for small group meetings (6-8) or reserve the community room for larger events (up to 50). Contact Holly at MOD 409-765-5659 for information and availability.
This is another dog friendly business, welcoming polite dogs on leashes. Bicycles are also welcome, and even have parking space available.
If you just can’t get enough of MOD, you may want to take some home to brew for yourself. They make their teas and coffees available, as seen on the website:
Organic Fair Trade coffee available by the cup or by the pound and ½ pound
Espresso beans available by the pound and ½ pound
Herbal teas available by the cup or in bulk
The Wandering Texans enjoy MOD as often as possible, and are pretty sure you will like it, too.
