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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
