“Hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Just behind it's bigger sister with the same name sits this little cafe, offering a few small tables and a walk up counter. Several of the same things find their way onto both menus. Back here tucked in the corner you spend up to 50% less on that yummy pot pie. Same tasty food for a lot less money. The chicken pot pie was fantastic. The mac and cheese was good. The ollaliberry lemonade was refreshing and cheap at $2.50 with refills being free. Both entrees were under $10 each and were generous portions. They close at 7 so plan accordingly.

“Delicious home cooking.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

My boyfriend & I thoroughly enjoyed our meals. He had the chicken pie. The crust was flaky and tender. I had panko crusted sand dabs which were amazing. Sadly, we had no room for dessert but bought bran muffins for our breakfast the next day. They were amazing. We love this restaurant.

“The Pie's Have It”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

We had an excellent dinner at Linn's last week despite the Cambria heat of 95 degrees. Unfortunately, like most places on the California Central Coast, Linn's was not air conditioned. So it's usual good ambiance just wasn't in play. But the dinner was delicious and the berrry pie I ate for dessert was outstanding. My husband and I highly recommend this restaurant. If you are in the Cambria area, give them a try.
