We have been here now three times. The first time I had peach pancakes (the special) and it was incredible. I saw on the table next to me an order of fresh fruit and it was the most beautiful presentation. Fresh strawberries, bananas, pineapple, cantaloupe and watermelon. Today I order strawberry crepes with cottage cheese and fresh fruit. It was... More

We ate here two times during our stay in Marina. It is a small little breakfast place that has great food and excellent service. The hot sauce is really hot--just letting you know!

Stopped for breakfast while cycling along the Bay. So glad we did! The Nova Scotia Eggs Benedict was particularly delicious: smoked salmon lightly accented with spinach and red onion, beneath perfect poached eggs and delicious Hollandaise. It's just a little place in a strip mall on Reservation Road but so good!

Small place in a strip but worth it. About 8 tables inside and a few outside. Family run and they do a good job.

If we had more time we would go back. Good coffee, for starters. I had a half order of French toast with a side of fruit. The toast had a slight flavor of fresh lemon and the fruit was all fresh. My husband had a mushroom omelet. He liked their hot sauce so much he bought a bottle. The restaurant... More

Terrific food and there really is a Tico. Went there two days in a row for breakfast...loved the first meal (Mexican omelet), grits and sausage gravy and eggs less impressive second day; excellent potatoes; good friendly service; totally unassuming place (even the sign noting the restaurant in the strip mall is hard to spot, overshadowed by larger type signs), and...

Great spot for american and mexican style food. Only been there for breakfast and have seen many benedicts being served. They have a many to choose from along with the daily specials. Fruit has always been very fresh. Service can sometimes be overwhelming for two servers with twelve tables.

Long ago I had breakfast and lunch at Tico's. My second cousin goes here for breakfast each time that he comes from San Diego to participate in the motorcycle races which are held at Laguna Seca. He's raved about Tico's in terms of items created and served as well as the reasonable price. I, on the other hand, have had... More

A small, casual restaurant in a strip mall. I didn't know what to expect for such a "Hole in the Wall" place. The orange juice was fresh squeezed(amazing). All the breakfast choices we had were all excellent from the Eggs Benedict to the Mexican omelette. The ingredients were fresh, flavor spot on, and attention paid to details. Overall I was... More
