Great customer service and fast, hot food! I would recommend their homemade gluten free French toast.

It is a family owned operation with food servered as if it was from your own kitchen without having too cook it! I love the breakfast meals.

We stopped in here for breakfast. Apparently there is a lot of repeat business. Now I know why. Endless coffee, a gluten free menu, fresh ingredients. All served with a smile. A peek at the lunch menu makes me want to return. You won't go wrong here.

Driven past here a thousand times and finally decided to stop for breakfast. Will definitely return. I was very happy that they actually had a two egg meal on the menu. My eggs were perfectly cooked, delicious sausages, and the accompanying potatoes were not the deep fried disks so many places serve now. To top it off service was quick... More

Linda's consistently provides a basic, comfort food lunch (or breakfast) in a casual old style coffee shop context. Nothing fancy or pretentious, just good basic sandwiches, eggs, pancakes, etc. Friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. I am told they also have amazing gluten free products (I wouldn't know because I love their pancakes). There is no pressure to rush, lots of... More

As someone who is gluten free, breakfast out can be a challenge. Not at Linda's! Gluten free waffles, pancakes and bread round out amazing breakfast options like eggs, omelettes etc. Coffee flows freely, home fries are amazing and the servers are always welcoming! You can even buy gf treats to take home. Our favourite breakfast spot. Go out and check... More

There are few options in Barrie for good gluten-free baking ... Linda's place is at the top of the list for a full-on GF bakery. They were also able to bake a fantastic GF cake at the last minute for my daughter's birthday party - impressive!

On the north edge of Barrie by a gas station. Typical old style Canadian homestyle roadside restaurant. We had the breakfast deal #1 ($9.99)which came with 3 eggs, 2 bacon and 2 sausage and scallop style fried potatoes. Good size portions. The next deals were larger and a couple of bucks more. We also had an order of french toast.... More

I'm not sure why it took us 4 years of living in Midhurst to finally try Linda's. So after a lackluster brunch a couple of weeks ago, this past Saturday we decided to pop in with our 5 year old daughter. From an aesthetics standpoint, pretty much what you would expect for a breakfast/lunch diner... booths and tables are basic... More
