It's small, it's packed, and it's a breakfast must. The food was delicious and all 3 of us cleaned our plates. My eggs were cooked perfectly. The service was good, and parking was plenty. Not the greatest looking neighborhood, but worth the vist. FYI - cash only.

Great lil' breakfast spot. Standard fare. As long as they can cook a decent poached egg AND serve good homemade hash, I'm a happy camper! Lots of locals eating here, too. Always a good sign!

We like Linda's for breakfast. You walk in the door & the coffee is set down in front of you. You greet all the people you know then start on a old fashion country breakfast. Nothing fancy just plain good diner food. Lunch is good too. Portions are hearty. The homemade chicken soup has large pieces of chicken. lunch is... More

This is a local place and always good.My only complaint is that there is only one cook and it is SO popular that the wait for good hot food is sometimes a bit long when it is crowded.

Linda's is a small, but homey-feeling breakfast nook. The service is very good and the actual, "Linda" is present.

My husband and I were driving through North Adams and it was pretty early in the morning on a Tuesday in October. We were looking for a place to eat for breakfast and as we drove by, we saw that Linda's was open so we stopped. It felt like we stepped back into time a bit. Such a warm, homey... More

Linda's Cafe attracts locals who want plentiful old-fashioned food, friendly service local color. All decked out for Hallow'en, but always colorful, especially if people-watching is your thing: One sign says "Will Trade Coffee for Gossip."

The food here was pretty good overall, I am giving it 3 out of 5, because it took a little longer than I am use to. They take cash only as well which can be slightly inconvenient in the land of debit cards most are use to. The interior is very intimate with less than 10 tables and a small... More

Really home style original funky cafe breakfast. Simply good basic food. The blueberry pancakes were gigantic and full of berries. And the bill was amazingly low - 1980's prices.
