We came from Australia and detoured to come to this cafe. It was 100% worth it. The food was delicious specifically the bacon waffle. The service was incredible also.

My wife and I went here for breakfast on a Tuesday morning at 9:30 am. It was packed and we waited for a table but only for about 10 min. The wait staff was friendly and brought me coffee as soon as we sat down. It was very good! My wife had French toast, bacon and scrambled eggs and fresh... More

If you wan't a great start to your day look no further. We were lucky enough to walk in at 7:30 AM and sit right down. If you have to wait there is coffee outside and limited seating. The parking lot is tight so if you know Santa Cruz parking you may have to walk a little.Now for the service,... More

Delicious! We were quite impressed that our combo breakfasts came with 4 slices of bacon, not 2. The blackberry muffin was great! We all enjoyed our meal and agreed that next time were in town we will be back, it was great to bypass the hotel breakfast. The breakfast potatoes, fresh fruit, pancakes, waffles and eggs all got a thumbs... More

Can't believe breakfast restaurants still offer hot water that has barely been touched by coffee. And that after so many good coffee places have sprung up. They do at Linda's generously refill that horrible stuff. Not sure that's a good thing. Food is great, though. Eggs Benedict and omelette very good. But the pancakes have a bit of a chemical...

My husband and I stopped on our travel to Monterey at this quaint friendly spot. We read the reviews and our experience did not disappoint! I had the Scrambler egg dish with fresh fruit and hubby had the tostada omelet with potatoes and salsa. They gave you a more than generous amount of food, fresh and tasty! Great fruit salad!...

You cannot go to Linda's without eating the cinnamon rolls. They are delish! The portion sizes at Linda's are huge so you may want to consider sharing a main dish so not to waste food. I had the scrambler and it was great. Wonderful family-friendly, hometown feeling atmosphere. I would go again in a heartbeat. You won't leave with an... More

Great home-style food, good service and quantity of food. One of the better breakfast places in town. They serve home made salsa as a condiment....awesome.

Reliably really good food (breakfast and lunch) in a pleasant cafe atmosphere with great, friendly service. Try the specials (they actually keep a "call me" list for the best ones!). Expect a line for Sunday brunch-- but the crowd is pleasant and patient (bring a book or newspaper if you're not with conversation-prone companions).

Thank CAjal
