Excellent place for breakfast. Delicious food and huge variety! Wish we could've also tried the lunch menu which had huge healthy options also.

The menu has wayyyyy too many options, but the food here is quite delicious. Came here for an omelet and I am impressed with the quantity of ingredients!
Veggie omelet- i know, it sounds boring, but boy there is so much flavor. Coming from the
avocado, and the feta cheese. Every bite is bursting of fresh vegetables.
Jinky's favorite omelet- delicious! Eggs are fluffy and there is quite a bit of sausage. Not overpowering, but enough in each bite. You hardly get that in restaurant's omelets.

This place has really good food and a really good brunch. My sister and I shared a plate because the dishes are too big for one person (or so I feel.) The parking was a bit hard but everything else was amazing.

We treated our aunt and uncle to breakfast here about 9:30 on a Sunday morning, as a thank you for hosting us this Thanksgiving week. They chose this place as one that had good food without a long wait for a party of 6. When we got there, there were a lot of open tables. I like that they have an outdoor seating option. The indoor dining area has 6 TVs showing various sports channels. It also seems very young kid-friendly (ours are 11 and 15 so I can't speak from
experience, only observation), with a paper 12-and-under kids menu/activity sheet and a casual dining atmosphere.
Service was very attentive and friendly.
The menu has a lot of options: pancakes of many kinds, waffles, French toast, crepes, omelettes, scrambles, bagels, lox, benedicts of many kinds, Mexican egg dishes, sides, quinoa dishes, cereals, combos, a variety of sides and more. Many kinds of drinks: lemonades, smoothies, hot chocolate, and the typical coffee/tea.
I would definitely go back the next time I'm in the area and wanting a casual, friendly, tasty breakfast. Prices were a bit more than I wanted to spend for breakfast sure., but they may be typical for the area. Not sure.

I am gluten free not by choice and the pancakes here are amazing. The service is always great and the waitresses/waiters polite. It gets packed in the morning on Sunday, so get there early. It's first come first seated. The coffee is also amazeballs...no cream needed. It's a great breakfast spot for me.

Great breakfasts, stayed just round the corner at Hotel Carmel and came here every morning for breakfast, pancakes in particular were very good

I love breakfast and this place rocks! The staff is great and are willing to accommodate. I encourage anyone, if you're in the area give this place a try!

Love this place for breakfast. Their menu is huge and yet, the quality of the food isn't compromised. There are several vegan options which is nice (for some people, I'm sure lol). Try their chili jumble, crab cakes Benedict and pretty much ALL of their pancakes, waffles and french toast options. The service is nothing special, you should have basic diner expectations. I used to love their bottomless mimosas for $12 but they just raised it to $17 which is just a bit excessive for me.

We ran into friends from New Jersey on the pier on our first day in Santa Monica and they recommended Jinky's as a good breakfast place and were they right! Went 3 days in a row. We tried the omelets, French toast, home fries, oat/wheat pancakes and egg scramble and all were great. The coffee was incredibly good as well and we are picky with coffee. We were seated quickly and the service was prompt and attentive. Definitely a go to breakfast place. Wish they were in Pittsburgh.

Nice patio seating. Relaxing. Eggs Benedict is great. Good coffee. Different chili's everyday. All of them good

A fine place to grab breakfast. Opens up at 7:30 and we were in straight away. Food was as you'd expect, nothing extraordinary but nothing wrong with it. I'd go again next time I'm back around Santa Monica.

I like Jinky's because they have a pretty decent variety of foods to choose from and unlike many comparable places, they do them all deliciously.
Great place to have a late breakfast, but salads are great too. And the chilis (I usually go for the veggie ones) are great for nippy nights!
Pretty decent service too!

If you're looking for a great breakfast place that is close to the promenade then this is your best choice. Great food and large portions!! I will definitely be visiting this place again on my next weekend in Santa Monica
2/2/2015 JT L. *** Naperville, IL
It's our breakfast place. It's been pretty solid and consistent.
2/8/2015 A K. ***** Chicago, IL
Great breakfast in Santa Monica
Decent prices fast service and great menu selections
I am very satisfied with them and would come back in a heartbeat.
Still haven't tried the chili, but will update the review when I do.

Really nice place to gave a breakfest, service was good and the food is fantastic- ask for a banana nuttela crepe its increadible
2/4/2015 Mono L.***** San Francisco, CA
God Daymn this was freaking hella good!
Hard to find parking here but its worth it. This is probably the best breakfast/brunch i had in life. I had the lox benedict w/ side of tomatoes (check the video). Hollandaise sauce was on point, perfectly poached eggs, lox had a delicious smokey taste, & the tomatos was the perfect balance. Im gonna come back here everytime im in LA. It was so good i had to mop the plate with a slice of bread, i couldnt waste a drop of this stuff.... Everything on the menu sounds good too

I love their menu, and if you eat there during the week...never a wait.
They have an extensive menu, really friendly servers, and very fair pricing. I've eaten there at least a half dozen times, and never one complaint from me.
The decor is fine, but it's more of a breakfast/brunch place anyway, so decor doesn't matter much for those meals..

I had been wanting to try this place for awhile and finally did this evening. The menu is HUGE and they have all kinds of options for anyone with a different kind of diet. I had a vegan breakfast that consisted of wild rice, tofu, and veggies with a side of tater tots. I can't resist tater tots! It was great except a bit too spicy for my tastes... next time will request that they go easy on the spice. Actually, next time I'll be ordering some of those delicious pancakes. We sat at the counter, which is always my preferred spot in a diner. Our server was awesome... didn't catch his name but he was a very friendly young guy who was doing a fabulous job behind the counter. Can't wait to go back for pancakes!

Getting better, went back for the waffle. Yep, it was good. Added eggs and chorizo to the meal.

5 star atmosphere and service. Went for a late lunch with my mastiff puppy, and they were more than happy to accommodate me on the patio. Great fast and friendly service, and a deep breakfast menu. Would like to come back to try the bottomless mimosas.
5/1/2014 K M.***** Santa Monica, CA
Just had to use my $10 for $20 Living Social. Wish I had bought a ton! I'm a SM local and never think of Jinky's, but the food was great, portions were large, and there were a ton of healthy options. They also have soy milk!
I got the Italian breakfast sandwich with egg whites, spinach, and goat cheese instead of mozzarella. On sourdough. Side of tater tots. Yum!! I also ordered the short stack of the oaty oat pancakes (oatmeal, oat bran, and wheat) to go to meet my $20. Haven't tried, but I am sure they will be great.
Sat outside on the small patio and made use of the free wifi.

Just came from here! I'm a huge fan of both valley locations. This one has a really hip vibe and best of all, a BAR! They have beer on tap, wine, and my personal fav, bottomless mimosas!
They boast the same great menu as the Sherman Oaks location, and the food is always fresh and fast. This location even has a nice extra large patio area for you sun worshipers! Come for breakfast, lunch, or dinner... Everything is great here food wise..especially their wide variety of homemade chili. They even have vegetarian and vegan menu items! The only problem with both locations is parking. There are a few spaces, but once they're gone you're on your own so get there EARLY!
6/17/2014 Kindra H. **** Camarillo, CA
Went here for the first time, it was AMAZING! So delicious! I had the oaty oaty cakes with caramelized apples and walnuts and a mimosa. It was so good!! I also tried my friends vegetarian sausage and it was exceptional! Will for sure go again!
9/29/2014 Jim A. **** Santa Monica, CA
The food is really good. Try the Ceasar Salad with shrimp. The shrimp are large and fresh. I have never had a bad meal. Omlettes are very good too. The portions are generous. Parking is right next door and the Promenade is right around the corner. You can also eat outside next to the sidewalk if you wish. I would have rated Jinky's a 5 but the acoustics are bad when the place is full. Heather is usually my wait person and she does a good job. She is attentive but does not hover.
