Mexican bakery/coffee shop with all the traditional pastries and cookies plus counter service restaurant for typical Baja-style breakfast and lunch plates. Two fish tacos plate for $5 is best price/value ratio on Linden.

Every Spring Break we camp at Carpinteria State Beach and we visit Reynaldo's at least 3 times while we are in town. Best tamales, carnitas and breakfast burritos! Oh my! Chorizo, egg, potato. The best. Don't hesitate visiting this restaurant. Solid, Mexican food, reasonably priced. Always a highlight of our trip.

Walked by this little place and couldn't resist getting a cookie. The next day we went back for more serious baked goods.... WOW! So fresh and yummy! I noticed all the locals getting their breakfast there and I was jealous that I had already eaten! Try this place ... you won't regret it!

It's a bakery and a kitchen. They make everything in advance, and if you want a hot meal, they warm it up in a microwave. A lot of folks buy enchiladas, quesadillas, tamales, to take out and eat at home. Also tortas, pies, cakes, doughnuts and all that. I had breakfast there — a very tasty warmed-up tamale: It could...

We've taken these tamales home a few times, and they were GREAT!!! But they are the 100% perfect train food!! Warmed at Reynaldo's, grab a fork and napkins, and you're ready to go!!!

Stopped in for a quick breakfast and was surprised to see all the great looking pastries. We had carnitas tacos and breakfast quesadilla. Both were really good, fresh, hot and delivered quickly. We could have split the quesadilla and it would have been plenty. The carnitas tacos were really authentic.

Tamales were refrigerated who knows how long ago they made them. Nothing like what I expected. Place is run down. Not so clean.
