I came in for the pumpkin pancakes and loved them! My server Brenda was exceptional! I will be back. Try the green tea. They brew it fresh, and let you leave with one togo.

I love jinky's cafe for so many reasons...the variety of food items and huge menu, their healthy options, and the fact that they have delicious coffee too :) I recently tried their ice blended vanilla drink and it was so good!!!
I love their pancakes, and always want to order everything on the menu! Be prepared to be patient . Good side is that there usually isn't a wait and if there is, it is not very long.

I can't say enough good things about Jinky's in Sherman Oaks.
The service is really special. Everyone is so polite and accommodating and friendly. If you go regularly, they know your name. They are open to any and all substitutions we've ever requested. The service is always really fast, and there are a lot of nice touches, like they make sure to take your drink order as soon as you sit down so you can get your coffee going asap.
The food is wonderful. There is literally something for everyone. My husband loves the chili jumble (substitute tater tots for potatoes), I have a ton of gluten free options to choose from. The coffee is unlimited and really good.
This is seriously such a nice place to go for breakfast. We come almost every week and have never had anything besides a great experience.
They are both kid and dog friendly too.

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.

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.
