We definitely will be back! A wonderful breakfast of perfectly cooked eggs, sausage & APPLE FRITTERS...DELISH! Excellent service. Not classy ambiance but very clean & neat. As Monterey Bay locals. we will be trying to work our way through the extensive menu. So glad I searched on Trip Advisor for someplace to try in Marina.

This is a small restaurant with plenty of homemade food. Portions were very good, however the enchiladas leave a lot to be desired. The burritos were good and flavorful. Prices are very reasonable

Visited this place twice in a row for breakfast. Both times, our food turned out to be excellent and service was equally good. My order was carefully packed and they made sure I had everything I needed. Of all the places I visited in Marina, this was the best place. It's a bit pricey for this area but well-worth it.

Accompanied also by a guest to remember the Salmon Benedict was delicious and bedded on a generous layer of spinach, potatoes, poached egg and hollandaise sauce to die for. Coffee was good and I highly recommend this place and we'll be back for sure.

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...
