I have always wanted to try this restaurant, but there is always a huge line outside. We went after a long walk and I loved the quaint feeling when you walk in. The server was excellent and we had breakfast and lunch at the same table. I believe the salad was one of the largest portion one in this area.... More

We had the special (tofu scramble with corn, tomato, zucchini, avocado, and basil), my hubs had the tofu fun. The server was super knowledgeable about what can be made vegan-so some of the menu can be veganized. Def recommend!

What a delightful surprise for the 6 of us - great lunches all around. The salad that comes with our sandwiches was HUGE, fresh and yummy. 2 of us had the stuffed cheese sandwich which had avocado and tomatoes on it. The perfect comfort food. The others had the soup of the day and practically licked their cups. Staff were... More

Great food. Easily the best breakfast in Santa Cruz. The omelettes are my favorite, although my wife loves the french toast. The fried potatoes are also very tasty, although I almost always have to take them home to finish later. Daily specials are inventive and delicious.

I've been coming to this restaurant for more than 20'years and have never been disappointed. The breakfast is the best! The cinnamon rolls are a must have- on Sunday only. My mouth is watering as I write this review.

Great food. Good portion size. Cozy atmosphere, and they ONLY take cash. They do have an ATM on site. Cinnamon rolls are fantastic.

After reading reviews that talked about long waits, I was pleasantly surprised when my daughter and I immediately got a table around 10 am on a Wednesday. Service was prompt and friendly. Menu selections were varied and creative. I ordered the omelet with fresh roast white meat turkey, cheese and avocado. I was offered (and accepted) salsa which was homemade... More

If you are looking for a hearty, carb loaded breakfast, this is the place in Santa Cruz. We were just passing through during our pacific coast highway drive, and stopped for breakfast. I enjoyed the fresh squeezed orange juice and a zucchini omelette. My husband also shared the bacon waffle, which was good but a little heavy for me.

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
