Very fast and friendly service. Excellent food, just as ordered. Apple juice was fresh apple cider (in October at least). Oatmeal raisin hotcakes (large) with crispy bacon and two eggs over easy was exactly as ordered and was only $9.50. Local friends recommended the Seabreeze Cafe and we'll definitely go there the next time we are in town.

Back in Santa Cruz to move our son into campus housing. Linda's is a guaranteed excellent breakfast! Good coffee, great selection of meals, and the prices are reasonable. We'll be back for sure!

We didn´t know this Cafe and were drawn in by the reviews on TripAdvisor. We had a great meal and the service was A+. The helpings are pretty big and yummy, but the only -not so good- part of our experience was that there was no freshly squeezed orange juice :) and that coffee was OK.

If I lived near Linda's Seabreeze Cafe I would eat there a lot. I'm big on breakfast anyway and the breakfast is outstanding! Be prepared to wait but don't worry, it will be worth it. They have a waiting area outside with a few benches and there is hot serve-yourself coffee (you just take your mug in with you when... More

You know a resturaunt is good by the line around the corner!. This little place is amazing and well worth the hour wait.

This was our first visit but we will... More

Great little diner , worth the wait. Most tender chicken fried steak I have had. Portions are large and the food came out quick and hot. The veggie scramble looked really good.

Cozy luncheonette with delicious breakfasts and lunches. Open 7-2. It is small - the second we waited 30 minutes for a table. Pancakes to die for - Stuffed melted cheese sandwich on sour dough bread!! UMM! Friendly staff.

True, the number of patrons far exceeds the seating. But, the wait is so worth it! We sat on the patio and sipped coffee from the self serve coffee service while we waited. The staff is friendly and the food is exceptional! If you are looking for a local home cooked breakfast this is the place!

Packed on a Saturday am around 11. 30 min wait. Local joint. It was worth it! I had 2 egg breakfast, (poached) with spuds and a banana muffin. The spuds were crispy, the eggs great. Inexpensive as well. Only $6.50. Next time I'm having hot cakes! :-)
