I had high hopes for this place...hoping for stellar art, to sit and relax for hours and watch street life, sip several cold craft beers and learn something unique from the Tico staff...nope. The art all looks the same with washed out pastel colorways, no alchoholic beverages of any kind, slow service, no street scene due to high fencing, and while the cat and dog are nice to visitors, their wandering through the space during food preparations is sketchy at best. Shucks...and no Tico's serving or prepping foods during our visit...just surfer kids.

I’m always grateful for a bit of levity. Traveltildead as per your acronym, obviously a well travelled person. We do our best, craft beer, troublesome without the means to get a license, although our staff, actually only one surfer, the others skate and do capoeira and yoga, other than myself, avid surfer, although I do the stellar art. I repeat, Grateful for your levity. We won’t be able to get the beer , although we never say know to a supermarket purchase for the diehard drinker. The art, well it’s a shifting platform, maybe the palette will suit your color standards if perhaps you bless us with a return visit. I love to meet all those that grace us with commentary. The kitchen is perfect for delicious food prep. I love to be surrounded by animals, wild and domestic, as long as they don’t bite they are welcome in my cafe, not in the kitchen, although some sneak in. Best to you. Bring a craft beer next time.

Very nice menu and cool vibes. Food is excellent and staff are very welcoming. It is a pity the place is so understaffed and waiting times are so long.

The waiters and waitress were so lovely and nice and the food is delicious and healthy. I loved a few of their smoothies, not so much the others. The artwork is awesome and a fun touch.
