Service was good - attentive and friendly. Food was nothing spectacular. Shares a small parking lot with Trader Joes, so that gets full fast. Omelettes were decent. Average.

It's our breakfast place. It's been pretty solid and consistent.
Still haven't tried the chili, but will update the review when I do.

My husband and I are in CA visiting family and decided to try this restaurant for breakfast based on Yelp recommendations. The food was wonderful, I had the green and white omelet and my husband had the Greek egg white omelet. Prices are a little high, but the quality and freshness of the food is good. I would definitely try this place

Expansive menu for breakfast. Our first time here and it was great. The service was exceptional, just the right amount of attention.
Laura S is a great waitress, cheerful and knowledgable.
We will definitely come back to try lunch.

4 stars for lunch....2 stars for breakfast. Have been several times for lunch and its always good....delicious sandwiches, great chili selection (I love chili!)...yummy. But went for the first time for breakfast recently and was surprisingly disappointed. Although this place is almost always very busy, the service is very good BUT both of our breakfast selections were delivered dry , eggs were "crusty" (maybe under a heat lamp too long) ...potatoes were like driftwood. Overall a very mediocre meal. Bummer!

I had been wanting to try this place for awhile and finally did this evening. The menu is HUGE and they have all kinds of options for anyone with a different kind of diet. I had a vegan breakfast that consisted of wild rice, tofu, and veggies with a side of tater tots. I can't resist tater tots! It was great except a bit too spicy for my tastes... next time will request that they go easy on the spice. Actually, next time I'll be ordering some of those delicious pancakes. We sat at the counter, which is always my preferred spot in a diner. Our server was awesome... didn't catch his name but he was a very friendly young guy who was doing a fabulous job behind the counter. Can't wait to go back for pancakes!

Good Local Food
Good for breakfast and lunch. Nice and large menu with something for everyone. BrEakfast is,my favorite and menu has lots of sweet and savory options. Normal prices and comfortable atmosphere. My experience has been that service is slow but not terribly.

I've been to 2 other Jinky locations, so I am a big time fan of their menu. Pages and pages of variations with meat/veg/vegan options, you gotta be a fool to not find something that sounds delicious.
Being next to Trader Joe's could be good thing, but the small parking lot for the demand could be nearly a disaster for your temper, or your car. It's the one draw back, well also, a little line if you come at peak times.
Breakfast burrito was my option for the day (and it was awesome, and double-good is the pea quacamole), but other locations I've tried: The Veracruz Talapia (AMAZING), and the Mexicali chili (I liked a lot, but small for the price).
Live on the wild side, try to find parking -- and go.

While I'm somewhat of a Jinky's regular this is my first Yelp. We started with 2 than 3 and finished with 7. Throughout this they courteously accommodated our needs. Service was near superb refilling drinks and fulfilling any special requests from our party. Even correctly providing separate checks for us. Didn't hear any complaints about the good and my "Jinkys pizza was fantastic.

Love this place for breakfast! Yummy options, huge portions, and lovely patio and indoor seating. The wait staff has always been friendly and accommodating during my visits. Highly suggested!

Jinkys Cafe has a huge menu, maybe a little too big.
I've thumbed through their menu many times and ended up with a club sandwich on one occassion and lemon curd pancakes everytime there after.
The pancakes are killer, you've got to like sour to like these and they are!
Jinky's cafe used to be dangerously close, walking distance, from our humble abode.
If you drive in, it's a great place to grab breakfast before the beach (if you exit Kanan Rd). Jinky's shares the same parking lot at Trader Joes.

This was my first time at this location and I as well as my friends found the food to be excellent and the customer service to be 5star outstanding.
Our server Jorge.G was upbeat friendly was got our order right and would check in with use often,but not in a over kill way.
He did a wonderful job.

Recently moved to San Diego - every time i come home to Agoura it's a tradition to eat a Jinky's

Great service but the food was average. I did enjoy the pumpkin pancakes though! Don't get the cinnamon crunchy french toast. It had a weird after taste. Also, I didn't understand why drip coffee costs $3.50... If I knew I would've ordered a latte.

I met up with some friends here for brunch. They have a decent outdoor patio area with a view. I like that they give each coffee drinker their own little pot since I drink mine rather quickly. The chilaquiles were delicious!.
8/9/2014 *** Tr. T. Los Angeles, CA
Food was pretty good, albeit perhaps overpriced. However, ordered bottomless mimosas and was allowed to wait until we brought the pitcher up to the staff (15 to 20 minutes). With only three other tables in the entire place, I understand that they were "very busy" but we had countless offers to clear our table of plates ( which still had food on them?) but not a single offer for one mimosa refill. Good food, fun idea. bad wait staff.

Great hummus sandwich! Service was a bit slow during the lunch-hour rush, but otherwise no complaints. Food was fresh & delicious - overall a good value. Excellent variety of vegetarian options.
8/7/2014 **** Rich R. Canoga Park, CA
We always find good food here, usually come for breakfast or lunch. This time we tried dinner and were pleased. Had the Thai Fusion chicken/shrimp Pasta and Healthy Tilapia. Food was fresh and served hot...both dishes very tasty. You also get a complimentary glass of house wine with each entree. Short of 5-star rating only because prices are a bit high for dinner menu items.

This restaurant is always a good choice! They serve breakfast all day and everything on the menu is delicious. My personal favorite is their mint lemonade! I know it isn't food but its so so good. Whether it's in the am to wake you up or in the afternoon as a refresher it's delicious! The reason I give them three stars is our waitress took forever with everything! And to be honest it isn't her fault they have so many people working but no one would help our waitress out; they all just kept sitting around. But other than the service the food is amazing and they have healthy options too!

Real good food. Excellent service. Had their eggs Benedict this morning and it was perfectly cooked. I would recommend the cook revisit his hollandaise sauce as it was a little off. Not quite sure how but it knocked a star off my latest review. A bit bland, and please no black olives on top of the hollandaise. Maybe that was what threw it off. Their soups and sandwiches are usually tasty and the people are real friendly. The coffee is a bit spendy, but it is a decent place to eat. Oh yeah no heartburn this time which is rare for me after eating Benedict. Good job guys. Sharpen up that hollandaise though.

Solid breakfast joint ... 5 different chilis on offer, and lots of creative dishes combining them into different breakfast concoctions. I had the chili jumble, home potatoes topped with scrambled eggs, chili, pico de gallo, cheese, sour cream and half of an avocado. Good, solid stick-to-your-ribs breakfast dish. My better half tried the chilaquiles, be warned, they are every bit as spicy as the menu suggests. The kids had crepes with nutella and bananas!!! They were in sugar heaven. Service was friendly and attentive. Not our favorite breakfast in the area (Harold's still holds that crown) but definitely worth checking out for a change of pace.
perfection, and flavored so well that he didn't even need syrup for it. I had the egg white Italian Fritata breakfast sandwich, and it was so large and filling I could only eat half. Good portions for the price in my opinion.
If I had one complaint, it would be the parking lot. It's pretty small and is shared with other businesses. Grab a meter on the street if you see it before even trying to get in and out of the lot during peak meal hours.
We will be back for the food again, but I will be stopping in there just for a chai tea latte to go instead of Starbucks in the mornings!
Oh! I can't forget! All of the servers seemed to have smiles on their faces as they took care of their tables, and our server, Alex was extremely polite and prompt. It's hard to find good service these days, so it was nice to see someone that still takes pride in their work. Thanks, Alex!
