A friend of mine introduced me to Tipico Cafe and I must say it is amazing . Simply quaint and in a small strip mall you have to know its here to enter .

Tipico has the best -- dipped in egg then cooked. In the Gateway shopping center. Lunch specials are economical and good.

I eat here all the time with my family. I always order the same thing. The churrasco, it comes with black beans and rice, plantains, and a nice little salsa. Delicious, good service, and a great value. What more can you ask for?

This Cafe was different than I have been use to. The food was flavorful and came out hot and fresh. The service was great too. The location is good, just off the beach away from some of the beach goers yet still close. I will return and dine again for sure.

We had planned on going to one of the "top 10" spots in town, but they were all packed. We stumbled upon the Tipico Café, and are glad we did! This is a Spanish/American/Mexican restaurant, so when we started out w/warmed chips and homemade salsa it was no surprise. There were three of us, and we all ordered the Argentinian... More

We had shrimp fajitas and masso de Puerto. Both were fabulous. Prices very reasonable. A local recommended it to us and we loved it!

We were staying just round the corner so decided to have dinner here. The decor is fairly basic but clean and the service is good. I had a steak with rice and beans and my wife had prawns. Both were very good as was the key lime pie. Prompt service and reasonable prices.
