We're in town visiting family and they brought us here for breakfast yesterday. Unfortunately the wait was too long and we were unable to wait so we had to leave. We decided to go back today since we had time and again, the place is packed! We were shocked to see it so busy on weekdays. We waited about 20... More

We visited this diner for breakfast on our way to Sonoma from Monterey and this was one of the best breakfasts we had on our trip. This is a classic American diner offering all your favorites including omelets, waffles, and pancakes. We dined in late for breakfast on a weekday and the place was packed with people waiting for a... More

We come here all the time because its conveniently located off of 41st avenue and open early. We like their breakfast, but they serve lunch too. The servers have been there a long time, so we are greeted by our name. We especially like the blueberry pancakes, sausage patties and fruit. The owner would see our phone number when we... More

Great restaurant with nicely prepared items and great professional service. The breakfasts make my day every time. (Shhh - my Mom would not do it better.) Special, fresh baked original muffins offered daily. Great pancakes (blueberry, too) and home fries. Tasty salsa - seems freshly made. Very accommodating. Often a wait - sign in and have some coffee. Always worth... More

This place has been around forever, and the owner, Linda has been around even longer, having opened the now "meh" Linda's cafe in SeaBreeze which retains the name even though her former business partner ended up with it as the story goes. We've been here probably two dozen times, my wife and I lived in the county for a long... More

There's good reason why the Spur always has guests - great food and wonderful friendly service. My Canadian Bacon Scramble was excellent; The coffee drinkers are always happy and also like the atmosphere.

Perfect diner! A large group met up here before heading down Highway 1. They were able to accommodate us at 2 large tables. The food was great and served fast and hot. Friendly staff and great specials. The huevos rancheros, corned beef hash, and homemade pancakes were delicious. The atmosphere was classic American western diner. Perfect start to our California...

Ourstanding family-owned restaurant. The BEST breakfast you will find in Santa Cruz! There is always a wait, but it is worth every minute ... once you get in the waitress or waiter brings you coffee right away and ,if you are ready, takes your order. The food is fabulous and portions are generous. Coffee is always kept hot and full.... More

There are not many breakfast/ lunch restaurants in small towns that are on a waiting list at 10:30am on a Wednesday. Silver Spur packs them in day after day and now I know why. They have all the traditional American breakfast food you would expect along with more than 10 daily specials to choose from. Who has daily breakfast specials?!?!... More
