Was looking for a breakfast place in Marina near a hotel my friends were staying. Tico's came up with high ratings so decided to check it out. Not disappointed at all. It's a bit hidden away in a strip mall but very sweet once entered. It's a small place with indoor and outdoor seating. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is really very delicious. They have both very traditional American breakfast and lunch choices but I would definitely recommend the Mexican choices. Really well done and fresh. Very reasonably priced and good sized portions. Definitely get your money's worth and very worthy of a return trip.

Coffee Mia makes homemade pastries as well as breakfast sandwiches daily. I tried one of there Italian cannolis with a good cup of coffee was delicious. Shop busy with local customers who stated to me they come there weekly and enjoy the food and coffee, price comparison to other coffee shops about the same.

When we visit Vietnamese restaurants, my husband orders the pho. He is very discerning about his soup and loved the pho at this restaurant.
I usally order the spring rolls, which were a bit under par, but okay,
The full restaurant attests to the popularity of the place.
Marina is becoming a hot spot for reasonably priced restaurants with dishes from far flung locales.

This restaurant was recommended to us when we asked about local fare. They have many wonderful dishes, but favorite is the beef and green beans with homemade garlic sauce. I think I could eat if for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

We just discovered this little Korean restaurant. Good parking, cozy dining room (seats 36), great service, fair prices, wonderfully delicious Korean food! Definitely coming back!!
Restrooms are outside the restaurant, around the corner, but decent enough. Water heater in the women's bathroom keeps the room warm too.
The side dishes are tasty and the server keeps 'em coming. The appetizers are generous portions so don't be discouraged by the price (@$10/ea). Plenty to share.
Spicy soups are served piping hot and spicy. Perfect! Whole grain rice is an option. Many vegetarian choices on the menu.

We truly enjoy this restaurant. The food is prepared fresh and is very tasty. They definitely add a new twist to your standard Mexican fare. My Husband and Father claim the blackened shrimp and chicken is excellent. I truly enjoy their vegetarian burrito with red or green sauce. We definitely recommend this restaurant.
