Solid family Cafe off the 118 on Arboles.
Location shares a parking lot with Ciscos and a strip mall so there is plenty of shopping. We went on a Friday night and it was nearly empty, which was concerning. The prices were reasonable; perhaps $3-4 higher per plate than you'd expect from similar cafes.
The service was 3-4 stars. Not great, but not terrible. The food was good overall. I got a Chicken Parm Sandwich which was tasty. My son had a flat bread pepperoni pizza which was pretty large and tasted good. My wife had a grilled chicken sandwich. Overall, the food was fresh and well prepared. Drinks were refilled after a short delay, but we didn't have to chase after the waitress.
The restaurant has nice booths and large TV's to watch sports. Frankly was surprised it was so empty on a Friday night.
Overall, a nice cafe to grab a bite. Family of four cost $60 after tip. Bit high for a cafe, but not crazy expensive. 4 stars.

Let me preface this review by saying that I am only speaking of the breakfast food and the atmosphere in the morning/early afternoon.
First and foremost, coffee. I love that they bring you a little carafe of coffee so you can keep your cup filled and aren't ever running on empty desperately trying to flag down a waiter to fill your cup. ** Please note, I am not saying the staff is difficult to get a hold of. They are very attentive and I have never felt inconvenienced by bad service here.
I love breakfast food and healthy breakfast food when available. Jinky's has an EXTENSIVE breakfast menu featuring many egg white only options and even vegan options. Tofu scramble is great, but be warned it's SPICY!
They offer a very flavorful pesto that pairs really well with many of their omelets and breakfast sandwiches. It's particularly good for dipping their tater tots in.
Yes, although I like healthy food, I can't resist a tater tot. Jinky's tots are particularly good, crispy outside while still being soft on the inside.
I have looked over their lunch and dinner menus in the thoughts of perhaps coming for a later meal in the future, but I have never seen anything too enticing. If I were t come for another meal I would probably still end up ordering breakfast, which they do (bless their little hearts) serve all day.

We had a good experience at this location;however, we have not been to the others. My hubby ordered the Vegan Kung Pao chicken which was to die for! Love all the Vegan options! I ordered the Chili Sampler which was very good! My favorite was the Himalayan Chili! We will be coming back for sure for breakfast. I read all the negative reviews about service but we had a great server! His name was Marvin and made great recommendations on the chilis!

Wonderful pancakes! I had the Oaty Oaty pancakes, which are made with wheat, rolled oats and oat bran. At other places, I've had whole-grain pancakes that didn't hold up to syrup at all and tasted like wet bread. Not these. They were delicious, first bite to last. And huge... I could barely finish two, so I don't know how anyone could manage three.
The service was pleasant and cheery, and my friends and I sat for 4 1/2 hours talking and no one bothered or rushed us. And if you don't want pancakes, there is a full and varied menu with breakfast, lunch and dinner options.

Food has always been great. Service also is fabulous.
I love their breakfasts and what is awesome is that they have tater tots!
The white and green omelette is super good!
They have such a great variety of foods from vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and regular foods. Everything I have ordered has always tastes fresh and good!

My wife and I were referred to Jinkys by a nurse from the Thousand Oaks Endoscpy Center as I wanted to have breakfast after my procedure! It was unbelievable! We ordered a mushroom and spinach scramble (soft) with OBrien potatoes and an order of pumpkin pancakes! The scramble was just the way we like it- soft! Yay! And the pumpkin pancakes were out of this world! Tony, our server, was very attentive and helpful and we were thrilled with our dining experience! We'll be visiting again soon!

The decor is comfortable and inviting. Our breakfast was great all around! The Bloody Mary is very good, my breakfast scramble was fresh. My hubby said his eggs benedict was great, but the hollandaise sauce was delicious. So happy to have a Jinky's in TO!!! Looking forward to some lunch and dinner soon!

Pretty damn good breakfast.
Wife and I enjoyed breakfast here. We shared the AM breakfast sandwich w/o the tomato (4 stars) the sandwich was a little over-kill on the butter and cheese but don't get me wrong, it's delicious. The sandwich also came with potatoes (5 stars) lightly seasoned with spices, unique and addicting breakfast potatoes. We also shared the SBC French toast (5 stars) bananas strawberries and a ton of chocolate chips, a little like dessert but it complimented the savory sandwich and potatoes with a punch-in-the-face of sweetness.
The restaurant is very clean and well run. Servers were quick, coffee was good, we got a ton of food for around $36. I forgot to mention we also ordered a bagel and cream cheese (4 stars) it was a plain bagel, pretty dense. The $36 included 20% tip.

Great service. Had a large dining party and Trinni Liam was great in separating the bill. Hope you like the gift cage!!

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!

Attended the yelp elite event at this place. I was very impressed by the great service and how friendly and helpful the servers were. This place has awesome chili - tried at least 3 types of chili, one of which has some Indian twist. All of them were great! Love the red velvet pancakes with fresh fruit. On top of everything else and the cute interior, a solid four star joint.

Yes I was late today but I'm the guy that showed up with breakfast. Yucatan quesadilla is my favorite. As I am writing this review the chorizo, eggs, guacamole and cheese are having a party in my mouth. This is my morning ritual and I stick by it like an addict for great good.

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.

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.
