Have been here numerous times, it never disappoints. my only regret is its not bigger because its such a popular place. I suspect that might reduce the charm so we will just leave it as is. Love the hash here!

After last being here in 1994 I was keen to introduce my family to Linda's. I'm pleased to say nothing has changed. We got there at about 9 on Friday and waited 20 mins. Staff were all lovely. Vegan husband enjoyed his tofu scramble, and 10 year old son was pround to have made his way through the suggested slightly... More

We raised our kids in Santa Cruz from birth, and as soon as they could sit in a high chair we took them to Linda's on Sundays for Mickey Mouse pancakes and bacon. Great staff, family friendly, and bottomless coffee (which is actually good coffee!). My wife loves the Greek Scramble, I could order anything as long as it had... More

The food is good. The menu's limited, but the french toast was very good, the huevos chipotle likewise. Pricing is typical. But...it's a fairly small place, and the wait was atrocious. I don't willingly wait an hour-plus for any restaurant, and particularly not for breakfast. So while the food and the service were good, this one goes on my "if... More

Came here on a Sunday and the wait was almost an 1.5 hours. :-/ There is coffee outside while you wait, you just have to bring in your cup to pay for it whe you get your table. I ordered the turkey omelet with the cinnamon roll. The cinnamon roll was good and the omelet had good chunks of turkey... More

Excellent food and service. The atmophere here is so relaxed. We really enjoyed our breakfast that was served in big portions. The service was all around all the time.

Hands down the best breakfast in town. Great staff, fast and skilled cooks and terrific food. Nearly always a waiting list, but once seated the service is fast and efficient. Try their muffins or cinnamon rolls. The omlets and scrambles are big enough to share and their specials are just that..special.

I enjoyed the food here as well as the good service. Great breakfast, yummy omelet fruit instead of potato and great muffin. Wish the took credit cards but they do have an atm machine, cash only.

Linda's is a great spot for breakfast - they have a large number of specials and regular menu items. Food is hearty and tasty, I recommend the veggie scramble, my husband loves the special waffle. Staff is warm and friendly. You must get here early, or you will wait, but they have self-service coffee while you hang out and wait... More

With all the talk on here I was expecting more ...I was disappointed. After waiting 55 minutes to be seated I was very disappointed, the breakfast I had was just average and not worth the long wait. I would say don't waste your time

Thank jepark64
