This was so delicious! We were there last week in the midst of covid, so all outdoor dining, they made the space feel cozy and warm....heaters and homemade fencing around the dining area. All staff was so friendly, specials menu looked delicious. I had the...Scrambler and he had the corned beef hash. We both chose a cinnamon roll as our side. It was all just the BEST! We make breakfast an event whenever on vacation...this was just so good. Also...100% good and safe Covid protocols were observed. Thank you!More

Very bad experience. I will never eat there again. My wife and I walked down to eat brunch. The hostess wrote our name and number down and told us it would be a 20 minute wait and we couldn’t stay there. We walked a block...away and got coffee and came back 15 minutes later. The same hostess walked up to us and asked if we needed a table and told us it would be a 20 minute wait. I explained to her that we had already put our name on the list. She started that they had tried to call us and there was no answer. She then stated that they should have a table available soon. My wife and I walked approximately 10-15 feet away from the roped off area and drank our coffee. The hostess came over and told us that we needed to have our masks on if we were going to stand there! I WILL NEVER EAT THERE AGAINMore

Breakfast never fails at Linda's!! Tex Mex Breakfast (with black beans and homemade salsa) is unique and delicious. Even the bacon and eggs is outstanding. Ingredients are quality are always fresh. Service is amazing. They are always there with a fresh coffee refill before you...even blink an eye. Oh, don't forget about Fresh Orange Juice and the awesome cinnamon rolls.More

My husband and I flew to SFO and drove to Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur area and this was our favorite restaurant of the trip. Small place, but amazing omelettes for a reasonable price (cash only). Worth a stop on the way to your destination.

Linda‘s Seabreeze Café is a really cute place with a great reputation. Everything just seems so peaceful and relaxed. I liked that and I really enjoyed the lunch break I had over here. When I wanted to order I asked for recommendations and I received...good advice but could still not decide, I was offered to just mix whatever I want... Now THAT is service... 👌🏼😂More

It is not dead silent, but it is definitely quiet enough to have a good conversation.
