Awesome breakfast.

Squeaked in before the line. Nice that they were serving coffee while you wait. Large plates, friendly and professional service. But be prepared - quite noisy.

Stopped overnight in Santa Cruz...what a gem of a breakfast spot. Quaint, clean, friendly & affordable. So nice to see in California. You can tell they really like people, service & food. Refreshing!!!

I've eaten here for years. Always a great meal. Small, homey setting, the staff is outstanding, the service great, the meals excellent and it's three blocks from the beach.

I have breakfast or lunch here several times a week and the food is regular American fare and fantastic. Clare and Tex, the owners, make sure everything is top quality and are very warm and friendly. Only two blocks to the beach. Not a fancy place but very nice..

As first time visitors to Linda's we can confirm other reviewers are right - it's good, it's busy, and be prepared to wait (seats, coffee and some off-street parking available outside). We had breakfast here one day and can see why it rates 1st in Santa Cruz. Our vegan found a good choice for her needs. It's just that bit... More

Linda Seabreeze Cafe is always full, so come not soo hungry or prepared to wait. You can have your coffee while waiting outside. I don't eat gluten or meat and I still go there and enjoy every bite. It is a breakfast that will carry you through the day.

Today ( 8/20/15) two friends and I had lunch at the Seabreeze. While the portions were generous, and wait staff was excellent, I'm sorry to say all the prices quoted on the lunch menu are out of date, The tuna melt I had was great, cost was. $10., NOT $7.50. This included a very nice, large salad, so 2 of... More
