Great home-style food, good service and quantity of food. One of the better breakfast places in town. They serve home made salsa as a condiment....awesome.

Reliably really good food (breakfast and lunch) in a pleasant cafe atmosphere with great, friendly service. Try the specials (they actually keep a "call me" list for the best ones!). Expect a line for Sunday brunch-- but the crowd is pleasant and patient (bring a book or newspaper if you're not with conversation-prone companions).

OK, I've read a few of the other reviews, and perhaps because I live in LA and grew up in NYC, I have little tolerance for the ordinary posing as exceptional for some reason or another (it looks out on an ocean, it looks out on a mountain, it is deep in the woods, etc.). Walk in this place and... More

This is a tiny, local restaurant that is walking distance to the beach. It is not touristy and is frequented primarily by locals. The staff is super friendly and attentive - Casey took excellent care of us. We did not feel rushed at all and were admittedly "killing time" to avoid a cold house! The food is every bit as... More

Good food and friendly service. Not touristy but more locals enjoying a good breakfast or lunch. Cash only.

Stopped for breakfast during our road trip last November and I am so glad we did it. It's a rather small cafe but the service was excellent. Must of us ordered omelettes and they were incredible, super big and delicious. I recommend the turkey omelette, yum, yum :) I dont like they have filter coffee but most cafes in the... More

Our family has a vacation house here and Linda's is definitely our go to breakfast place. The food is great and the staff is very kind. They have a menu that they serve as well as an amazing specials menu. The lines are kind of long to be seated and it can take anywhere from 10 min to 1 hr,... More

Staff are very friendly but had to wait for a long time to be seated. Place is quite small but great food. Every food we ordered tasted fresh and yummy. They only accept cash but price is reasonable.

Thanks Tripadvisor for pointing us to an amazing place for breakfast or lunch. The food was plentiful and excellent. The ham and cheese omelette was about 1.5" thick! I had the Greek Scramble which was different and tasty. The potatoes were especially good and well fried. The cinnamon muffins looked amazing. We never would have found this neighborhood place without... More

A great place for breakfast. A well-deserved favorite of locals. Generous portions served in a warm, happy atmosphere. It doesn't get any better than this! Eat here, you won't be disappointed. Cash only but well worth. The savings are passed on to the customers.

Thank johnpilot
