Definitely OK food, but the prices are not so great considering there are plenty of similar restaurants with either better food for the price, or better price for that quality of food. Especially since it's been hit or miss when I've been there... (please, PLEASE make sure the tomatoes are fresh!!)
Also heard two servers being trashy-catty (the little asian and the one with braces) while I was in the To-Go area waiting for a seat a while ago... a bit of a turn off, Jinky's Sherman Oaks! My first server was very friendly and genuine though, a bigger girl with a wonderful laugh :)

Needs to be updated but we always have a good meal here.
8/4/2014 * Cassandra P. Los Angeles, CA
Atmosphere - dingy and old. REALLY needs an update.
Food - mediocre at best. Also messed up my order, twice.
Staff - Very polite but completely aloof. Not very attentive, needed a coffee refil for 20 minutes never once saw any waiter/waitress come by. Price - VERY OVERPRICED!!!

Portions are a good size. There's a lot to choose from. I enjoyed sitting outside. I wasn't super impressed with the food but it wasn't horrible.

Quick, friendly service and the food was good. I had a Jinky's Favorite omelet. The potatoes were DELICIOUS. Coffee was fresh.

Been driving by this place for a while now, finally decided to stop by, and I'm glad i did! I ordered the Desperado burrito replaced the egg for tofu, and got the veggie chorizo. Very pleased with the food. I haven't tried other food yet but will give this place a 5 because if the great service provided by the hostess and out server Lauren! Will def come back.

Since I was a kid I've been coming here once in a while. I'm not a big breakfast eater but this place is decent food, reasonable price, and feels homey. Downfall to this place is parking. They have a semi- private lot but what a nightmare! There are never parking spots and street parking is horrendous, even worse now that more shopping food centers have opened up just blocks away. This is a good go to for breakfast in a pinch.

The staff is very friendly and cozy environment. I was sat right away, and the place was buzzing for breakfast with what seemed like professionals on lunch enjoying a nice brunch. Plenty of seating tables and a few booths. The food was tasty(had the french toast with banana, strawberry, and chocolate chips)and definitely had a homemade feel. Prices are between 10-20 dollars, but menu does offer a verity of options. Over all this place seemed perfect for an intimate breakfast with family and or friends.

I had the chicken sandwich with avocado and onion rings and it was delicious.
I also had a side of their "gourmet" mac and cheese which was a little different but still amazing.
4/19/2014 ***** Paul M. Los Angeles, CA
My favorite place. Try the onion and zucchini thingie. It's so good! Chili is awesome! Wild wild wear and balafon turkey are my fave. Spinach Bites= Awesome. Breakfast is great!

You can never go wrong with Jinky's. Their pancakes are always fluffy and delicious. I highly recommend the omelettes, too. Great service and really accommodating servers- I came in with my laptop to get some work done during brunch hour on a Sunday and they quickly sat me at a table with an outlet nearby.

We got the Sherman oaks Omelette. So far so good! Mixture of mushrooms spinach and garlic. Very basic yet healthy! they also have bottled beers for $2 which in LA is a miracle. So yes love this place!

This was our first time here, and we were super impressed with the food and service for a great busy weekend breakfast spot. My chai tea latte was as big as the moon, and honestly the best one I've ever had.
Our food, delicious and fresh, and came up quickly despite how packed the restaurant was. My husband had the Flaky French Toast, it was cooked to 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!

California“waiters can make the difference”A lot of times, regardless of the food, if you have a good waiter/waitress, your meal is just better! We went for lunch last week and all three meals were good. They serve different variations of chilies, some much hotter than others. I supposedly had the mildest one and I found it quite spicy! The chicken curry salad sandwich was a little bland but the turkey and pesto sandwich on a ciabatta bread was so big, we took it home as a left over. The Kobe hamburger was delicious. They have a full bar. Our waiter couldn't have been nicer or more attentive. It a great neighborhood family restaurant.

Great breakfast....french toast is a MUST

If I lived here, I would come every week. HUGE selection. Jinky potatoes are good (that's coming from an Idahoan) and you absolutely have to try the pumpkin pancakes. Even if just a short stack.

Great food, great atmosphere, great waiters/waitresses...a great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Tried Jinky's since we had been going to our regular place way too much. My fiancee of course got eggs beni and a belgium waffle and of course, tater tots. Holy crap. The tots and waffle were to die for..... OMG. Trying to stay true to a Los Angeles si,ze zero I got a salad. It was fresh but nothing amazing. I guess I really just wanted the red velvet pancakes. I have one more stomach flu till a size 00, then I will have you red velvet pancakes..... :)
Will be back to try dinner.

Jinky's Cafe is conveniently located near my place of business and we go there quite often. The sandwiches are good and we also enjoy the salads. Sometimes we eat at the restaurant and sometimes we get our order to go, but have not had a problem. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. I don't know why others have said negative reviews, we have been eating there for the last 3 years without a problem. Staff is nice also!
5/8/2013 **** Becca G. Los Angeles, CA
Delicious salads, scrumptious omelettes, and a friendly staff! Gotta love Jinky's!
5/1/2013 ***** Vera O. LAKE VIEW TER, CA
Really good food. Their eggs Benedict with hash are delicious but their Belgian waffles with vanilla ice cream are to die for!! :) service is great, definitely coming back!

Are you a man, in Sherman Oaks, wanting to date a healthy eating yogi? Does this yogi tell you she's too busy and can't meet with you because she has yoga class?
Jinky's is your answer. It's .3 miles away from Corepower yoga, is open 7:30AM-9PM daily, and has healthy options. Recommend the simple but delicious Healthy scramble - it has TOFU! Ask for Sriracha and she will be impressed.
I am passing on knowledge my then acquaintance and now boyfriend imparted onto me.

Had the Portobello Mushroom, huge slice, great taste with lots of spinach and mozzarella cheese. Sitting outside on a great day the service was still first rate.
3/24/2013 **** Samantha T. Sherman Oaks, CA
Great breakfast menu and you are more than likely going to see a celebrity when you eat here. Putting that aside the service is good the biggest downfalls are the parking and the semi-shitty bathroom situation. I hate having to walk through the kitchen prep area in order to pee or change my baby. It's good just avoid it on the weekend the lines are RIDICULOUS!!!!

Nice spot for breakfast.

My second- Mama swears by this place so she took me for brunch this past weekend.
The Mexicali Benedict was TO DIE FOR. I am a huge benedict fan and this is definitely going on my list.
The french toast was unique with cereal coating, it was a tad dry. I usually rock french toast sans syrup (I can't stand syrup for some odd reason). Literally, dry and a bone straight through. BUT it still tasted pretty darn good.
Service was fine. Space was clean and modest. Parking on the street.

Great food after our 5k. The bottomless mimosas were delicious and free flowing. Everyone enjoyed their breakfasts.
We ordered tater tots to start and they didn't come until after we got our food, so that was the only negative... And it took a little while to get our order in. But other than the tots, our food did come out pretty fast. All in all a great Saturday brunch spot on the patio.
PS - I thought the "pea guacamole" was weird.

Good food, especially breakfast food. Quiet, homey atmosphere. Good service.
