Good breakfast in North Adams

Only open until 11AM, so get there early! We arrived at 10:30 on Sunday and had our choice of tables. Kitchen was a bit slow but food was fine (poached eggs, home fries, egg sandwich). It's cash only, so be aware!

Standard breakfast food. But no pancakes. Coffee was ok and service fair. The whole place could maybe do with a clean and certainly the rest rooms need work. Cheap and filling, but there are better places

Having breakfast at Linda's is like walking into a place that time forgot. Wonderful staff, good food and the friendly atmosphere makes this a must every time we come to the Berkshires. Don't expect fancy, or hi-end. This is where you go for dependability and hospitality- plus great food at a fair price. If you come during the Christmas, the... More

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."
