Café Tico, a new coffee shop and restaurant, opened last month in Flamingo, across the parking lot from the Banco de Costa Rica branch in the López commercial center. The eatery offers a variety of hot and cold drinks, sweet and savory baked goods, natural drinks and sodas, local foods, tacos and North American-style hamburgers. The air-conditioned restaurant is a cool, comfortable spot for guests to enjoy a meal or snack before or after bank business. Within the property boundaries, an additional 16 commercial spaces are available for rent. For information, call Jessica Barrantes at 2654-4085 or 2654-4374.
