If you don't feel like making breakfast and you don't feel like getting one of those huge plates of bacon, ham, eggs, home fries, grits, pancakes etc. etc. etc that is the usual breakfast entree at most restaurants what do you do? I go to Marlida's. It is a simple little restaurant attached to a motel. While they do have TVs at the booths there is nothing really special about the decor. What they do have going for them is two things. One- a simple menu with a breakfast special of two eggs, two bacon and two toast. Cooked to order but no substitutions. All for $2.99. The food is good as well as the coffee. You leave feeling good, not stuffed. The other thing that keeps us coming back are the servers, Maria and Jennifer. They are friendly (particularly when they get to know you), prompt and deadly accurate in knowing when's your coffee cup is low on fuel..it is our go-to spot for a quick tasty and reasonable breakfast.

Been wanting to go there, finally went for breakfast. The service was bad, 9 tables 3 severs and they still couldn't figure it out. My husband couldn't even get a refill on his coffee, waited 45 minutes, finally got a coffee refill. The food came out, it was gross. We couldn't eat it and my food had a big black hair right on top when put in front of me. It was cold and nasty like it had been sitting for awhile. Never will return.

We use to frequent when they first opened up. Breakfasts, were good and staff was friendly. Well, new staff not so friendly. They don't acknowledge your presence when you come in at all. Like I said, the food is good, restaurant is clean, but their attitude toward customers has a lot to be desired. You kind of get the feeling you are bothering them.

This place is right next to the pool and across from the Tiki Bar at the Days Inn. It has everything breakfast, lunch, dinner, appetizers...love this place. Didn't have to leave the hotel to eat well.

Recently stumbled upon MarLiDas Diner in San Carlos on my way to bonita. My friend Kris and i were craving a good homemade sandwhich in a friendly clean environment. What we founf here was above our expectations. The Mar Li Das homemade White sub roll stuffed with homemade fresh Italian Meatballs and Provolone Cheese, toasted with olive oil and Italian seasonings was a phenominal sandwhich, hands down the best i have ever had. Not only was the sandwhich superb but the waitress serving it was a breath of fresh air in a sometimes not so friendly tourist town. Kelly was very patient and very knowledgable about the menu, and informing us what ' taste great, and what taste even better' As a restaurant owner and manager the cleanliness, moral,accuracy and great service skills are easy for us to spot. Kelly out did herself and was on the ball. The kitchen also did a five star service. My husband and i will definately be back for the Mar Li Das, we will also recomend to our friends and family and will request kelly everytime we go back.
