Great breakfast in Marina

Found this place on Trip Advisor, Unpretentious decor, location, but really good food, service, and menu. Well worth the trip.

Just finished my breakfast at Ticos in Marina. Steak and eggs is a favorite breakfast when I'm on a road trip and when I ask for rare steak it rarely is. At Ticos it was cooked perfect, as was the rest of my meal. Attentive and friendly staff. Ticos is a great little old style cafe.

Ticos is a small restaurant in a not very attractive strip mall. but it is cozy and clean. Everything we had there was fresh and carefully prepared. Service was friendly and accommodating. Prices were very reasonable for generous servings. A very good choice for breakfast or lunch. They also recently started serving dinner on Fridays and Saturdays.

With several visits to this fine and small (sq. footage) establishment, I have seen consistency in great food and service. These are happy people, and it shows in their work. They specialize in breakfast and lunch until 3:00 PM. Located directly across from the Ramada Inn on Reservation Rd. in Marina.

Ticos is a great place for breakfast in Marina. Their omelets come with a variety of imaginative fillings, including house-made chorizo, and are large enough to last two meals. Everything on the plate was delicious, including the home fries. They do not offer green tea. It was so good, we ate here twice during our vacation!

I read many reviews of this place and wanted to try it out for myself. I stayed in a hotel about less than a mile away. It was hidden in a strip mall and, as everyone had said, would be hard to find but I saw a little sign close to the curb directing me to it. The food takes... More

been here many times when we go to Marina Dunes. This is a real find, excellent service great food, and best crab and shrimp omelet in town. Small place and everyone is there to make your meal a great experience. The locals try to hide this place, but it has been open for several years now.

They were correct the food was wonderful the place itself was in a strip-mall and the decor not so fancy but who cares when you get to have great food at a good price. I had breakfast apple fritters with an omelet and... More

Good little mom & pop restaurant. The manager at the Ramada referred us and we were happy he did. Everything was cooked well and tasted good.
