I've never had red velvet pancakes, and I was quite impressed. It's definitely sweeter than the multigrain, and I'd recommend to the consumer to order them without the chocolate chips as they are sweet as is, and don’t need any further contrast.

Showed up around 7:45am on a Tuesday
This spot was easy to find & the parking lot was a good size so I don't have to worry about someone boxing in my car.
We seated very quickly upon entering, the booth was clean and well organized with a good amount condiments.
Our server was super sweet and friendly once she handed us our menus. I noticed it was stacked with breakfast items which a huge plus for me. One thing that I thought was cool they had gluten free and healthy options if you're watching what you eat. I am not though lol so I got crepes with strawberries, almonds and chocolate chips as the toppings. I also got a scramble with cheddar cheese, ham, hash brown style potatoes and a side of tater tots which came with sourdough toast. I also got a black steamed tea with soy milk and honey.
First of all these crepes were amazing they weren't overly sweet and they were light and airy. But the crepe itself stood up very well against the toppings. The strawberries were ripe and fresh the almonds added the perfect crunch. The chocolate chips were semi sweet & they melted with warmth of the crepe which added a great level of richness & creaminess.
The large scramble was made up of four eggs the eggs were cooked well they were fluffy. The ham was cut into thick cubed pieces and it was juicy & seasoned well. They were very generous with the cheese which I loved & the potatoes were great not oily or greasy they were crispy and flavorful.
Now for the reason I gave it 4/5 stars their tater tots were horrible they tasted flash frozen. It was like they took them out of the freezer and microwaved them they didn't even taste decent with ketchup.
The tea was great it was in a huge cup steaming hot and it was brought to me before my meal. The tea wasn't bitter it was pleasant and creamy from the soy milk. The honey added the perfect amount of sweetness without overpowering the drink itself.
Summary: I will come back to try their other items & I recommend this spot to anyone looking for a great breakfast.

So many choices both food and coffee wise. Absolutely loved this place and will be back before vacation is up. Our servers name was pronounced "Elgar" and he was excellent and even gave us coffee to go. Wishing we had this place back in Minnesota!

Cute non-commercial place to eat breakfast/brunch in the 3rd street shopping area. I liked that they had 1/2 sizes as an option.

Their food is great, I had Buffalo wings and a Chicken salad accompanied by a few Mimosas on Super Bowl evening. Sat at the bar, Leslie provided fantastic service.
Will be back.

Another no-frills breakfast spot to check off my list. My only gripe about Jinky's is their price. Other than that, the breakfast is really decent. Being on Ventura Blvd, I am sure you can charge $8 for one red velvet pancake.
The service and food was good. Coffee was good as well. Breakfast spots should always serve up a good cup of Joe! Jinky's did.
The menu is stocked full of breakfast and lunch goodies. You won't be disappointed. Yes, we even ordered the $8 single Red Velvet pancake which was good.
Find parking on street or use their small lot. Credit card ok.

Brand. New. Menus! I stopped in for breakfast and was greeted by several different workers over the next 20 minutes. There was perhaps some confusion as to who we were supposed to have as our server. Whatever. The thing that caught my eye was the new menus. I recall the giant, large, elephant-ear menus from before, and to see these new ones, was a relief. They are slim, pared-down, but still have tons of info. Read more like a tablet.
The physical place seems the same as before, maybe a bit brighter. Certainly the bathroom off the main entrance door looked much improved.
Our food was good, hearty and took almost no time to bring out once we ordered. Starting with the coffee in a carafe, I was set for awhile. My companion favored Hot Chocolate on this chilly, rainy day. He loved it. Though we later learned it was Hershey's syrup, it was how they did it. It came out creamy and smooth and had marshmallows seemingly built in. (We opted out of the whipped cream).
The omelettes. They now have a Small and Large size. Depending on your mood and hunger and which one you get, the Large may mean you've got leftovers....or maybe not. I had the Healthy Green which had, believe it or not, a lot of green veggies! Chopped spinach, broccoli, diced zucchini, chopped scallions, asparagus, feta cheese topped with avocado and swiss cheese. I opted out of the feta, swapped Swiss for provolone, and called it an Omelet. Choice of bread, and potatoes or fruit, et al. Fruit was good, albeit pineapple-heavy.
The Jinky's Favorite (choice of gourmet sausage, tomatoes, diced onions, garlic and provolone cheese) was a winner, too. They have so many sausage choices, as usual, so just pick one. Chicken/apple this time.
The Ketchup is now labeled Jinky's and is cute. Staff is uniformly friendly and helpful. The prices do seem to have jumped a bit, however, you can't begrudge them too much, IMO. They're using quality ingredients, and quite possibly, are even paying their very able staff. A fair trade, I'd say.
