“Don't call it "Linda's"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

You'll annoy Tex and Claire, the owners; Linda's been gone awhile. Good food, very well prepared; impeccable service and delivery. Home-made cinnamon roll or muffin with every meal, and they're not small. Families, neighborhood people, and folks who came in Porches sit side by side. Friendly, cheeky staff. I'll never forget the time the waitresses dressed up like bacon and eggs for Halloween. Go there -- if on a weekend, before 8 unless you like waiting a half-hour. Which isn't all that bad in the parking lot, because there's a coffee station in the parking lot and you can drink up while everybody's children and dogs run in circles in the parking lot. A good scene.

“What a Find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

People who live in Santa Cruz know about this great little restaurant, most tourists haven’t found it yet. What I love is the great breakfasts and it opens at 6:00am. The wonderful Tofu Scrambles are large, hearty and a great way to start a busy day. Being GF vegan I had no trouble with the breakfast menu; lunch menu might be a little more challenging but I am sure the friendly staff could offer suggestions. Most of the vegetarian/vegan restaurants in Santa Cruz don’t open until 10:00am or 11:00am, the Seabreeze is an exception. Being early risers, my partner and I are looking forward to our next trip to Santa Cruz and a big, big breakfast (especially my partner)!

“Delicious Omelets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

At first I wasn't sure judging from the outside. But on the inside the staff is very friendly. The food is great quality, not to greasy. I ordered the bacon and cheese omelet , they definitely don't lack with the serving size. My boyfriend had the tostada omelet, that came with a tortilla and fresh salsa. He made two full burritos with more food left over. This place is usually very crowded but we got there at a great time around 11am.

“Amost too popular”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Absurdly popular -- there's often a waiting line at lunch and always a waiting line on weekend mornings.
