The gentleman with the dapper mustache is a delightful and mysterious server. Food-wise, the food was spot on when I visited. All in all a very nice experience. A tiny bit pricy, but the experience as a whole offset it... unlike the Sherman Oaks location. But that's another story for another review!

I really love having breakfast here. Large patio, good food, bar, friendly service. Just a comfortable place to relax and eat. We drive 25 minutes to have breakfast here. (I MUCH prefer the atmosphere here to the Sherman Oaks' Jinky's.) It's also open late.

This place was good. The host and waiters was nice. Their mac and cheese was average but their hot chocolate was great.

Request sara as your server. She is amazing. Then get the bottomless mimosas. Then have the most delightful brunch ever.

Food was great! I had French Toast with eggs and bacon. It came out nice and Hot! My butter was melting on my French toast this made me very happy! Most places I have to send my French toast or waffle back because it's cold and the butter won't melt my aunt got the Bombay scrambled Roll was absolutely wonderful! I had a bite Daniel is a good attentive server. Even though it was very busy he still did a great job!

Food was good but not fantastic. However, employees that were there one Sunday brunch were young, impolite, discourteous, and rude. My wife had to step out to nurse our baby and as she walked toward the exit she slipped on a wet spot but she was able to catch herself although the baby was a bit shaken up and cried. There were two employees that stood there and did not even offer to ask or stepped forward to assist my wife to see if her and the baby were okay. I wanted to make a scene but was able to compose myself decided to just leave. It seemed that these "kids" are inexperience in customer service as well as their lack of empathy and courtesy.

I eat here pretty often. This is my favorite place to get savory crepes! And their coffee thermos is a great idea. I love the service and the dog friendly outdoor environment.

Jinkys is so amazing the menu is very eclectic with so many delicious things to choose from. I usually go there for breakfast. The chili is so good and so are their house made breakfast potatoes. Parking situation isn't ideal that's the only negative to this place.

Great place for breakfast or lunch! Cheap drinks but delicious, you can either get an ice ice cold bottle of beer or a great mixed drink for super cheap!! The chili is awesome!!!! Especially if you like spicy and no beans! Must get an order of tater tots!! Share with the table!
Also dog friendly on the patio!

Had breakfast here with the girlfriend. I went french toast and she went pancakes and we were both impressed. They have an impressive chili menu and I'll be curious to come back and try some of those. If you go on weekends, might want to pack some earplugs as it's a very family-friendly place, which means screaming babies/children! BE WARNED!
Oh, also LOOK FOR STREET PARKING!! They have a parking lot but it is the worst parking lot known to man. If you park in the back section of it, good luck getting out as it's only ONE WAY and as your trying to turn around to get out, more people will be trying to get in only to realize there's no more room, so then they start to turn around... JUST AVOID IT. Park on the street. You'll be much happier, trust me.

I really enjoyed this place! The menu is huge, and they have the BEST tater tots on earth.
I built my own scramble with mushrooms, avocado, and cheddar cheese. The ingredients were very fresh and I thought it was a great deal for $11.99 (came with tater tots and two pieces of toast).

Jinky's is janky. Friendly staff and plenty of space inside and out but my vegan dish tasted a bit funky and the coffee was simply terrible. And all I wanted was a cup but got a $3.50 pot. I give them credit for big menu selection, staff, and layout but the actual food experience left a bad taste in my mouth. Literally
7/11/2014 ***** Rachelle L. Los Angeles, CA
I love this place! When my husband or friends ask me where I want to go for breakfast I always say Jinky's Studio City Cafe!
I love that they have so many options on their menu. I always get the iced green tea. It is Super delicious, and Super refreshing. My favorite is creating my own scramble. Everytime I've been in there I've always had really good service. They have many locations but this one has a patio. People bring their dogs so you must love dogs to sit out there.
The Studio City location is my favorite! I love the Sherman Oaks location too, but the patio at this location wins me over =)
Peace, Love, and happy Yelping to you all =)

Food was delicious and reasonably priced, bottomless mimosas were great but the one star review is for the poor service from our server "Tommy P". The front of house workers were amazing, the wait for two people was very short.
Tommy was friendly and cutesy until halfway through our meal, then he started rushing us like crazy. I ordered two extra sides and he rolled his eyes each time, presumably because we weren't eating/drinking as fast as he'd like. Our mimosa, coffee and water carafes went from being fully refilled to being only filled halfway. Toward the end of the meal he gave us MAJOR attitude about refilling our water (lol, what?!) by saying "I refilled these once already." I couldn't believe it. Then when my husband went to the bathroom as I was signing the check, Tommy swoops in the second he sees I'm finished and GRABS THE RECEIPT OUT OF MY LAP! I did leave a big tip because the FoH workers and food were just great.
But to Tommy- Dude, I get it. You want to turn the table to get more tips but honestly, you suck. If we ever go back we'll be sure to request anyone other than Tommy P. Learn some customer service, buddy. You do not reach down and grab the check from a woman's lap. Shame on you.

This place is my Sunday brunch Mecca. This location in particular is really nice for indoor or outdoor seating, and even though it gets busy I feel like I've always had fast service.
Spare yourself and just park on Colfax. The lot is sometimes merciful, but there's also a crossfit studio in the plaza and you could potentially run over someone doing burpees in the parking lot. No, seriously.
The menu is HUUUUGE. You want pancakes, waffles, French toast? Done. Maybe egg Benedict, an omelet, or an innovative combo? Done. There's a ton of sandwiches and salads to choose from too. Each day they have about half a dozen chilis on tap, and will let you sample them beforehand. For the vegetarian, the chili isn't that great but everything - and I mean everything - on the menu can be tweaked or adjusted for whatever your dietary needs are.
It's all a bit hazy, but if you need recommendations I'd say: Santa Fe Scramble, Bananas Foster Pancakes, Rosemary Omelet, and the Himalayan (beef) chili are excellent.

How many places can you find willing to serve bottomless mimosas on a Friday? Jinky's is one of the few. Great place, nice clean and busy. Definitely a studio city favorite. I didn't see any celebs but I was mostly paying attention to my own date and downing mimosas! Beside the champagne with a lighter citrus not quite OJ but very flavorful, we had the Nutella crepes which came out perfectly. We also ordered an omelette which was very thick and flavorful. I thought maybe a touch salty but I wasn't complaining. Service was wonderful and attentive and knew when to give my date and I some space. We never felt rushed or pressured to leave. I definitely enjoyed jinky's all around. We got out of there paying 58 dollars for two people, two entrees and each had the bottomless mimosas for 15 dollars each with purchase of an entree. Can't wait to go back!

Went here for the first time. Ordered banana, strawberry and almond pancakes for about $12.99 and a small orange juice for $3.00. The stack was only 2. I think it's overpriced as it's nothing special but it is very fresh and it tasted great just basic. Service was good. I had to wait for the check for awhile but other than that cool breakfast place nothing out out of the ordinary.

Where to start, how about the star of the eatery, "Jonathan." Jonathan greeted me moments upon entering Jinky's. He was genuinely polite and, "On the job!!" As I arrived during happy hour he related the specials, however, I had not eaten breakfast, and now six o'clock, the thought was consuming. Although a great pitch- I on the happy hour I ordered breakfast. Jonathan took my order and even convinced me without effort to have the tater tarts- awesome.
As I am sitting hear I can hear the lively employees singing along with the music- that was quite nice, a singing bartender has to be a happy bartender. Otherwise I'd probably overhear complaints with her coworkers on how unhappy she is...(voices travel). I heard singing! And she wasn't bad- I actually feel relaxed and want to take a nap if that says anything to her soothing voice. And watching Jonathan walk about, seemingly without rest attending to others in the restaurant says something about his work ethic and yet I was not left forgotten.
I was set on breakfast but their happy hour menu looks inviting with great pricing. All in all I must say that Jonathan took exceptional care of me and for that and the above observations, five stars are well deserved. I hope you get a raise in pay Jonathan because as employees go, you are an asset and your value doesn't go unnoticed, thank you Jonathan. First time waiting on me, but not the last-I will be back for happy hour. Now the food: Fresh, cooked as I requested, no mistakes in the order and down right delicious. My breakfast hit the spot! Thanks again Jonathan!

You feel like you should only give it 3 or 4 stars just because it's more of a breakfast lunch casual place. But the food is spot on big portions fresh so I have to give it 5 stars. Love the chocolate chip pancakes. Its not on the menu but they make an awesome Bloody Mary with sake that packs a punch.

Jinky's is great! Service is excellent--great waitress and good, relaxed vibe and we brought our giant mastiff along who was allowed to sit with us outside! I had the chicken curry sandwich with a mimosa (and was offered the bottomless mimosa option for only $15) and my husband had the loaded burger with sweet potato fries. We will definitely be back for the bottomless mimosas on a day off after a hike without the pup!
4/8/2014 **** Audrey N. Irvine, CA
In love with this Studio City spot because they do bottomless mimosa for $15/person!!! And you can sit outside in the patio. If you know me....I LOVE MIMOSA! =D I came here with my friends for a late lunch last Thursday. We had service was good, nothing went wrong there. =D

Had cravings for eggs benedict so I went there for brunch. I ordered it with lox because I was feeling adventurous that day. It was a great choice! So yummy. The staffs were very attentive. Will have to come back again to try their crepes.
3/21/2014 ***** Kate M. Los Angeles, CA
I love Jinky's Studio City! So fun and friendly, and they have TATER TOTS! And mimosas! Definitely a hangover greasy spoon spot, when I just want big servings and great service.
The eggs, sandwiches, TATERS, so good!

This place is great! The bananas foster pancakes are the best! A must try! My kids love the crepes. We have been here for breakfast, lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. The menu is really extensive. So much to try but its really difficult for me to venture off their breakfast menu. Its so good! The staff has always been super nice too!
The decor of the cafe is really comfortable. It looks like a home. I love the flooring and the patio is really nice too. They have outdoor heaters that help if it gets a little cold outside.

I have been coming to Jinky's for about two years now. It's very good! My fiancé and I always order the Jinky's favorite omelette with spicy Italian sausage and sometimes I add jalapeños or green peppers (depends on my mood) and we split that (big portions) along with the breakfast potatoes. We also order the Flaky French Toast and split that. Note that we split both at one sitting.. It's delicious! Coffee is good too. Service is good as well, nice friendly staff.
