Our service was great and the waiter was adorable. Ambiance was romantic and definitely recommended. For the music,,,I would recommend jazz or house and the people were cool. Portions were good.

Great food, Good sevice, Good ambience. Tried the Chili omelette was out of the world. The ice cream waffle satisfied the sweet tooth craving. Coffee was excellent , they give you a pot of coffee so you don't have to wait for the server

Pros: Unique & Delicious Dishes

Cons: Parking

.

Jinky's has a huge menu and absolutely delicious food, but there isn't a lot of parking and on weekends, I almost always have to wait 20 minutes for a table. I recommend ordering the toppings for the pancakes mixed into the batter, because otherwise, they simply put them on top. There's always a bunch of different chili flavors each day. I haven't had anything that I didn't like, and they are very accommodating requests to customize orders. The most surprisingly yummy scramble I've had is the Bombay one. They have an excellent full coffee bar (iced mocha mmm).

This place is so avarage. My family has eaten here three times trying to figure out why are so many people here and why the great rating. So why the great rating why so many people? the answer - they are sheep they follow a crowd. but

A nice casual atmosphere, service and food are good, and they have the BEST iced Vanilla Latte I have ever had!! I try one everywhere I go, and no one else's compares! I always go on a weekday, so I never have to wait for a table.

I worked near Jinkys so we ate there often out of convenience. Their breakfast is very good and the portions are large. Lunch on the other hand is just ok and for the money I think you can get much better food somewhere else. It'll do in a pinch and their menu is eclectic.

Really good food -- especially breakfast. There lots of options, both traditional and healthy-California style dishes. There almost always seems to be crowds of people waiting on Saturday and Sunday mornings -- not worth that type of wait

I have seen the line in front of this place for several months, so my fiance and I finally decided to try it. The food was awful. The couple next to us didn't like their food either and ended up not paying for anything except their coffee.

Best place for breakfast in the Valley - bar none. The wait staff is not nearly as bad as other reviewers have said, although service can be slow due to the numbers of people who come for weekend brunch. Try the chilli omelettes, Santa Fe

It may take an hour or more to get seated for Sunday brunch, the food is worth it. The portions are great and the options are quite diverse. Other than the wait, parking can be a challenge.

For me no weekend is complete without at least one breakfast at Jinky's. Their Pancakes are great (I prefer the fruit mixed IN the batter if you ask me). Ditto for the flakey french toast. I _ALWAYS_ get the Chicken & Herbs omlette though. Delicious. There is usually a wait on the weekends and I HATE waiting for a table at restaurants. I make an exception for Jinky's though, it's just that good.

Friendly neighborhood cafe for breakfast and lunch. The best french toast (Flaky French Toast, thick slices of egg bread dunked in batter, dipped in honey-nut corn flake crumbs) and an amazing assortment of pancakes. Packed on weekends...long wait fora table.

This is a great little neighborhood find, particularly if you love breakfast all day long but dread those ubiquitous chains. Jinky's is basically no-frills, but framed cartoon cels featuring everybody from Elmer Fudd to Fred Flintstone…
