Cute place with very friendly servers. I had the Santa Fe Scramble and all I can say is WOW. Perfect balance of veggies, eggs and chorizo, with the very inventive and great addition of corn tortilla strips for a little crunch! I was skeptical about the pea guacamole since I'm not a huge fan of peas, but it was delicious and seasoned just right! I loved it so much I tried to go back the next day and the day after, but they had lost power. I am definitely going back for more as soon as I can!

Jinky's is my favorite brunch in LA. ALWAYS worth braving the 3rd Street Promenade mess on the weekends. You can almost always find parking in one of the garages on 2nd street, even on a busy day. As for the restaurant, there may be a slight wait, but it's never been outrageous for me. Just remember, they won't sit incomplete parties!
I love Jinky's Favorite omelet, and ANY of the Mexican breakfast items (breakfast quesadila!). Their breakfast potatos are always awesome, and I love their chilis (you can ask for a sample too). I've also thoroughly enjoyed all of the lunch items I have tried. Basically, I would eat here every day if I could. Definitely try it!

Well, my most recent experience with Jinky's was finally on par with its food. I went back yesterday for lunch because I was craving their Rosemary Omelet, and the service was vastly improved. The host staff was friendly and admirably efficient; I was impressed with how quickly they had people moving in and out of the restaurant.
We waited a few minutes, but only because they were busy, and we were seated as soon as there was an opening. Even though they were crowded, the restaurant was well-staffed, so we were attended to and served quickly. Everyone was very polite and friendly (entirely new staff), and somehow, it wasn't even as impossibly loud as it used to be.
I must admit that the owner really took the comments I've seen on here to heart, and Jinky's is back to being my go-to place. In fact, I think it's going to be my new happy hour place- great deals on good food and drinks, and their sangria is wonderful. Very pleased with all of the changes that have been made!

Amazing & Extensive menu. Best Breakfast in Santa Monica!!
Every time I go to Jinky's, I try something new. Everything has been 5 stars. When I go for breakfast I have a hard time deciding sweet or savory. While you decide, they bring you your own jug of coffee to keep at the table. 3 cups later..
Go Sweet with these - Flaky French Toast, Red Velvet or Pumpkin Waffles, Berry Nutty Crepe
Go Savory with these - Healthy Scramble, Garden Scramble, Athens Delight, French Garden or just a classic Eggs Benedict
For fellow Vegetarians, they serve soy chorizo, soy bacon, and other yummy soy products.

Comfortable and warm ambient. Food is really good. Creative cook and great service. Portion are really nice, makes you full and satisfied with ease. People visiting are nice too so it just adds to overall ambient. With their prices, this place is a good choice
