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

It tells you much that there is often a long line to get into this small, friendly restaurant. [If you want to avoid waiting, go on a weekday].The food is excellent and dependable [all the normal choices], and the people working and eating are pleasant to start your day in intimate proximity. If there on the weekend, just plan on... More

8 women in our family had an excellent breakfast today to celebrate 2 birthdays. The food was excellent and the birthday girls received cinnamon rolls with candles and the whole staff singing happy birthday. One of the best places in town for breakfast. The service is wonderful and friendly, everything is fresh. Really like this place. Big omelettes, great home... More

I went with a friend on a Saturday morning and of course there was a wait- there is always a wait but it is worth it! There is coffee that you can enjoy amongst your fellow hopeful diners outside. My favorite things to get is their basic breakfast because you get a giant side of ham! Plus their blueberry muffins... More

I do not understand why people will wait outside in the rain for breakfast. I won't. I will never go here on the weekends. I have visited a couple of times during the week when there was no waiting. They sat us in the front corner where we were very cramped. The restaurant is very tiny. Don't get me wrong... More

Warm and friendly reception and service. Very busy on father's day and many waited for a variety of great food. We ordered pancakes, omelets, Yucatan Rancheros, cinnamon roll and orange juice. We all agreed the food was fresh and delicious. The orange juice is freshly squeezed and very flavorful.

BEST PLACE TO EAT IN SC!!! Found this place when driving around half starved post surf one morning. The staff greets us warmly and must have seen the crazed look in our eyes and coffee was in front of me before I could blink! One order of the surfers breakfast and second of the pancakes....amazing! All relish and jams made... More

Linda's offers a variety of breakfast foods focused on vegetarian dishes. The food and service are excellent, but it is small and usually requires a wait ... in our experience.

We are a family of Brits who came here based upon the reviews. We were not disappointed! Surprised to find that when we went in the front door, the small but friendly cafe was bustling. We were met by a friendly server who added us to a waiting list and then I saw all the people sitting outside on the... More
