Thank you trip advisor for bringing us to this spot for lunch on our road trip from LA to Monterrey. We weren't sure about the recommendation as we were driving through the neighbourhoods to get there but this place looked fine from the outside so we got parking just to the side of the cafe (free) and walked in. Server was so nice and gave us a great recommendation for the special. You need to walk in here hungry or maybe share one between two, ours was the chicken taco special. HUGE! Very tasty and just a really nice chill out spot. Another server saw our camera on the table and asked if we wanted a photo together. This is a normal cosy cafe, not trying to be anything its not serving tasty inexpensive food. I would recommend it highly,

Thank God for AAA and its Travel Guides (by State) rating accommodation and eateries - it led us to Linda's Seabreeze; and what a way to start the day. Incredibly interesting, tasty and fresh options, not at all greasy; and the very nicest people making it all happen.
Great staff enjoying life doing what they do in delivering the best they can to their guests; making sure no one is disappointed.
The place was full, the service was quick; but not rushing us.
We ate breakfast here each day in Santa Cruz - and will do likewise on our return.

Very good breakfast place. It is small, 14 tables total. Portions are huge, bring your appetite. Be ready to wait. This is a locals place and they turn out every morning. You will see why once you get in and eat. We only waited 20 minutes, they provide free coffee while you wait outside. The oat and corn meal waffle with fruit is very good. Omelette is very good, just the right amount of cheese. Save room for the homemade cinnamon rolls. No credit cards, only cash. This is a common theme in Santa Cruz.

Fresh off the boat, they serve wonderful breakfast specials of seasonal fish that makes my husbands heart soar with the eagles! And they offer a little bit breakfast perfect for me. I can choose a fresh baked cinnamon roll to accompany my small portion breakfast. Warning....if you want to be seated right away, arrive early! The neighborhood locals fill this place and you are assured of a wait once the sleepy heads awake. But fear not! They set carafes of steaming hot coffee outside so you can get your caffeine jolt while you wait!

First, this isn't Linda's place anymore. Like many locals, I was braced for the worst when Linda sold it but I'm very happy to report there has been no decline in quality. It remains the best breakfast in Santa Cruz. The omelettes and french toast are both great. Ask for the side of salsa for your eggs. The cinammon roll is not on the menu but is really good. There is almost always a 30 minute wait but they have self-serve coffee on the outside patio and chairs for waiting. Service is very friendly.

BRING CASH! No plastic is accepted.
