I stopped by LSC while in town with some colleagues on a business trip. LSC is only open for breakfast and lunch and we snuck in right before they closed at 2:00pm. The breakfast and lunch menus are available all the time and the restaurant...More

If you go anywhere near Santa Cruz you have to stop in and sample Linda's fare. First, we got there close to closing, but the staff NEVER hurried us or made us feel uncomfortable. On the contrary, all were friendly and accommodating. Also, folks got...More

We went here on our last day in santa Cruz and wished we found it earlier. Lovely waiting staff and restaurant in a great location. The food was delicious and it has a very varied menu. Nothing to not like!

The food and service was just amazing! We had omelettes and pancakes plus the famous cinnamon bun. If you're in Santa Cruz, you should definitely go here for breakfast!

The previous reviews sum it up. For the same price you would pay at another restaurant, you'll get a homemade muffin, great coffee, fresh salsa, hand cut fries etc. My only complaint is the price of substitutions. Enjoy!

Our family went here for breakfast while staying in Santa Cruz. We loved it so much, we went back the next day. Healthy options available as well as the standard choices. We will definitely be back whenever we are in the area.

We ordered French toast, waffles, orange poppy seed pancakes, plus sides of fruit and bacon. Everything was very good, and the French toast was exceptional. The quantities are very generous. Furthermore, the service was great - attentive, friendly, but also business-like in a good way...More

We went to Linda's for breakfast and oh my gosh, I'm so glad we did. I had a Florentine omelet with potatoes and a cinnamon roll. More than I'd normally order but I couldn't resist. Usually I find omelets to be a bit too heavy,...More

It is not dead silent, but it is definitely quiet enough to have a good conversation.
