I've been lunching at Jinky's for years now...and just because it's "white bread" plain doesn't mean it lacks panache, or the extensive menu doesn't rock! Jinky's expanded because people looking for an honest breakfast/lunch place found one... and brought friends. I'm particularly partial to the fresh and juicy grilled veggie sandwich, but I've enjoyed tasty waffles, crab cake benedict, just... More

Another local restaurant (non-chain) that started my day very well. Excellent service and a good value. Enjoyed my Pumpkin Pancakes and the parking right outside the front door.

Jinkys is a quirky, eclectic, comfy, yummy, place to eat. Great food, coffee, options for special diets and many many types and levels of spice-- chili!! Always a hit, busy on the weekends as a favorite place of locals, and very reasonable priced! 🌷 enjoy!!

Great breakfast as usual.. been at least 5 yrs and still leaves me satisfied and happy. A little pricier but worth it via food quality, consistency and awesome service. We came on a Sunday ... ample parking . The Yucatan quesadilla was a surprise and was crispy and filling.

I love coming here for brunch. My husband and I were by ourselves this time when we visited for brunch. This restaurant has three small rooms filled with tables and whenever we have come the place is packed! On this visit though (Sunday morning) we didn't have the usual wait. Since we were only about 10 minutes away we called... More

This is a nice place for a good breakfast. It is off Ventura BLVD in a strip mall. Nothing special for décor but reasonable pricing and good food. Nice service is a plus.

Jinkys has an interesting assortment of food on the menu, not just the ordinary salads and sandwiches: Great breakfasts, coffee drinks, and their own chili in several levels of a spiciness. The service is fast and always friendly. The prices are a little higher than other cafes I have visited, but I believe the freshness and quality of the food... More

I came here with my cousins and of course, I was a first-timer. It was AMAZING! They give you a BIG plate! It was too much for me to finish but it really was amazing. The only issue was the waitress, she was rude. But I am rating based on the food not the staff. It's not their fault she... More
