About MOD Coffeehouse
MOD Coffeehouse has had the honor of serving Galveston for over 15 years. We are baristas, bakers, managers, parents, students, artists, musicians, writers, and community organizers. We create art, pursue our educations, make music, support our families, and seek balance and health in our own lives. Over the years, we have built careers as baristas, entrepreneurs, pastry chefs, lawyers, doctors, office administrators, marketing professionals, and beyond.
Our focus is making great coffee, building a positive and supportive work culture, and creating a warm, welcoming place for all who enter. ♥
MOD Coffeehouse was founded in 2001 by the Brown Family: Angela, Craig, and their son Matthew. They wanted to breathe new life into downtown Galveston by providing a space where community could gather. They restored the Pix Building and provided beautiful outside seating to encourage development on Postoffice Street. The name “MOD” comes from their desire to bring something more modern, yet full of charm & warmth, to historic downtown Galveston.
MOD was heavily damaged by Hurricane Ike, sustaining over 9 feet of water. Following the storm, the Brown family decided they wanted to see MOD remain open, but were ready to transition the business to new owners. MOD reopened with the help and support of the Galveston community on May 15th, 2009, less than a year after Ike. Holly Hopkins became Steward of the MOD in 2010, and continues to honor the founding vision, values, and traditions.
