Love love love coming here on a Sunday morning. Their breakfast selection is out of this world! The patio is so nice and relaxing! The staff is always on top of everything. Haven't had a bad experience here.

Jinky's has the best eggs benedict. Nice patio overlooking barranca. The menu has a great variety of items and different kinds of chili. I've never had anything here I didn't like.

I love the chili sampler. There are a lot of different food options, but I always settle on the chili. It's good to go with a group and try each others' food.

Love their chili. My son's loves their diverse menu. Service is usually really great from the female staff, the guys are hit or miss.

In town on a business trip and this place is within walking distance of the hotel. Great food! It looks like they serve breakfast all day, I came in late afternoon so I opted for the sandwich menu. I got the Agoura Sandwich which was similar to a chicken philly but it has jalapeño, cream cheese and balsamic on a sourdough. Holy delicious. I wanted to save half for lunch but I could not stop eating it They also have happy hour everyday which includes $3 beers. Win. The menu is huge so it was a little overwhelming but I was very happy with my choice! Will def be back before my 2 weeks are over

The beauty of this location is although it is located off the busy 101 highway in agoura, it offers a great view of the mountains on the other side of the highway. I love to go there when it drizzles, which is like once every 100 light years. They offer a wide variety of breakfast options including their signature pancakes, omelettes, waffles, crepes etc. I have only tried their omelettes and loved them. I somehow felt that the dishes are healthy as they use fresh ingredients and taste is flavorful. I ordered the chilli omelette supreme and it was just perfect. I loved the beautiful flavors from the chili and the eggs were able to hold on to their flavors on their own. Chilli has the ability to overpower other flavors at least the one here was perfect. The hostess was very helpful. Coffee was always to the brim so was water. The place gets very crowded, this one is adjacent to trader joes, I managed to get a seat in the patio and loved it. My wife ordered the spicy voodoo. With fab habs jalapeños and a secret ranchero sauce, it just took the omelette to a very different level. It's been a while since we visited jinky's, it hasn't rained. Nevertheless I think it's time to go again. Parking can be a challenge. Be ready to go around the complex couple times before you find a spot.

Always good for everybody. Lots of choices and each one is pretty good. I've been here five or six times and consistently reliable to satisfy.

My family and I visited the Agoura Hills location of Jinky's Café when we were staying in the area to attend the graduation at Pepperdine University. I never heard of this café before, but my mom had come across them on Yelp and said the reviews were pretty good.
When perusing the menu, I was immediately a fan ... not only because there were so many choices on the menu, but also because they serve breakfast all day. Breakfast cuisine is my favorite, so I knew I would have a hard time choosing what to get.
There's ample parking at this location (it's next to Trader Joe's), and when we went for dinner on a Thursday around 6 p.m., it was pretty empty. Service wasn't the quickest, but the girl was really helpful, which we appreciated since we were first-timers.
My family enjoyed a nice, low-key dinner and we enjoyed the peaceful ambience. There are so many other items I want to try from Jinky's, so I'm already anticipating my next visit.
Here's what we got on this first round:
"Red Velvet Pancakes": It's rare to find red velvet pancakes on restaurant menus--even at places that specialize in breakfast cuisine--and when I inquired about them, our waitress reassured me that they were worth trying. I'm pretty picky about my red velvet and prefer it with cream cheese. These pancakes came topped with mascarpone frosting and dusted with powdered sugar, but the server told me that it wasn't a frothy, whipped topping. Satisfied, as I don't like whipped cream, I ordered a short stack of these pancakes and I wasn't disappointed. They were MOST definitely red--the brightest red velvet pancakes I've ever seen in my life--and they were indeed topped with a generous dollop of that mascarpone frosting. I did enjoy the frosting's sweetness and spread it across both pancakes. The pancakes themselves were light and fluffy, and they seemed to melt in my mouth when combined with the frosting. I still prefer the red velvet pancakes from my beloved Cinnamon's (back in Hawaii), but I always would have wondered what this version tasted like if I didn't try it. I'm glad I only ordered the short stack, though -- any more of that mascarpone frosting would have been too much for me to handle.
"Salmon in Caper Sauce": After every family member had a taste of my mom's entrée, I think we agreed that this was the winner of the night. It featured a salmon steak over garlic mashed potatoes topped with tomatoes, caper sauce and a side of sautéed vegetables. My mom ordered her dish sans the tomatoes, and every element of the entrée was phenomenal. The salmon was tender, flavorful and perfectly cooked, but it was the caper sauce that made it amazing, as it was extremely savory. I also enjoyed the fluffy, perfectly seasoned mashed potatoes, and there was a decent serving to accompany the salmon. If I ever went to Jinky's for dinner again, I would want to order this salmon entrée. It's one of the best salmon dishes I've ever tasted!
"Pesto Pasta": My brother ordered this pasta because we rarely find options that include pesto sauce. Tomato sauce, meat sauce or white sauce, yes; pesto sauce, not so much. The linguini pasta was cooked in aromatic house pesto sauce and came with your choice of meat; my brother went with salmon, which I probably would have done as well (unless I felt like eating chicken breast or shrimp). He enjoyed his dish, saying that the pesto sauce was flavorful, the noodles were well cooked (but not rubbery), and the salmon was flavorful, tender and moist.
Gourmet Chili: Jinky's is known for their extensive selection of gourmet chili, and different varieties rotate daily. My dad opted for a cup of "Mexicali" (5 spice level) chili, which came topped with cheddar cheese and onions and served with garlic bread. He only got a cup because he planned to share the "Beetroot" salad with my mom. What's pretty cool about Jinky's is that they offer free samples of the chili so you know what you're getting into before you order an entire bowl or cup. This is especially helpful, too, if you're uncertain about your spice tolerance. Tried some of my dad's chili and think that 5-rated spice level was the perfect blend -- just enough kick but it didn't set my taste buds on fire. I'm stoked to try some of the other versions if I ever return to this place.
"Roasted Beetroot & Goat Cheese Salad": My mom read great reviews about this salad, and because it was so unique--you don't often come across salads with beets as the main component--she wanted to try it. This salad is a good size and can serve as an entrée if you're looking for something healthier. It includes beets, goat cheese, candied walnuts, mandarin oranges, fresh basil, sliced red onions and a balsamic drizzle. I tried a bit of the salad and picked around to avoid the beets and oranges (my mom ordered the salad sans onions), but I really enjoyed the taste of the goat cheese chunks, fresh basil and the balsamic drizzle.

Pretty eclectic menu, but what's great is that they have a very good breakfast menu for dinner. I little pricey or it would get 5 stars. Healthy options too.

Great family restaurant. Good healthy choices.. The service is great. Food comes out just the way you ordered it.r

Love coming to this place when I'm in the area. There are certain things that I look for in a breakfast restaurant. #1 you have to have soy milk for my coffee! #2 You have to happily substitute because I'm picky! And #3 you have to have healthy options. Last and most importantly you have to care about customer service. Jinkys definitely meets all the above criteria, the service is excellent...they are super nice there. They do an awesome vanilla soy latte. Plus if that wasn't enough they serve tater tots ...tater tots are one of my favorite food groups!! You can't be in a bad mood when you're served tater tots!!
Go check it out you won't be disappointed!
We had quite a selection from Strawberry Macadamia Pancakes, to a Breaakfast Burrito...Corned beef hash and sweet potato fries! All delicious...sat on the patio and enjoyed great service too.

Found a great breakfast place that's got good things for everyone, vegetarian or gluten-free or like me looking for comfort foods. The Red Velvet pancakes with mascapone are obscenely good, almost a half a regular cake but looking like innocent pancakes. The mushroom, bacon, and onion omelet was great on a late Sunday morning. The menu reads like an east coast diner, and we'll be back to try it all. Our server, Shar, was excellent, as her pride in her work and customer service showed well.
The parking lot, shared with Trader Joe's, was keep circling busy. Great inside and outside seating too.

Professional server..clean ambiance and healthy menu. The place is spacious and has a cabin like feel. The place is well kept. I ordered the mint lemonade and the goat cheese salad. Add chicken on the side. Big serving ! I am impressed but they have gluten free choices. I was impressed . One thing I kinda find it odd Is the server was more dutiful than friendly. Overall this place is a must visit for the healthy and buff fans!

Chiliquiles! Chilli and eggs! Mexican breakfast hangover spectacular! Friendly service, good beer selection. Bottomless mimosa deal if you're ready for more. I will dream about this meal until I return.

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.... Have been several times for lunch and its always good....delicious sandwiches, great chili selection (I love chili!)...yummy. Although this place is almost always very busy, the service is very good.

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!

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,
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).
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!
