Four of us had a fabulous breakfast at Tico' s from the homemade orange marmalade to the roasted potatoes, to the French toast, to the chorizo omelette. I have to say that the mango pancakes were the best pancakes I ever had: light and fluffy and filled with fruit. The service was excellent: my coffee cup runneth over. Note that... More

Hidden in a strip mall is this great breakfast/brunch joint. We have always had a great meal here. Small and family friendly.

I enjoyed everything about this place: homemade marmalade, breakfast, fresh fruit and local hot sauce. I had crab cake benedict with homemade hollondaise. Service was great too. Like mom's cooking but better (sorry mom).

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!
