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.

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!

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.

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.

This was our first time here, and we were super impressed with the food and service for a great busy weekend breakfast spot. My chai tea latte was as big as the moon, and honestly the best one I've ever had.
Our food, delicious and fresh, and came up quickly despite how packed the restaurant was. My husband had the Flaky French Toast, it was cooked to perfection, and flavored so well that he didn't even need syrup for it. I had the egg white Italian Fritata breakfast sandwich, and it was so large and filling I could only eat half. Good portions for the price in my opinion.
If I had one complaint, it would be the parking lot. It's pretty small and is shared with other businesses. Grab a meter on the street if you see it before even trying to get in and out of the lot during peak meal hours.
We will be back for the food again, but I will be stopping in there just for a chai tea latte to go instead of Starbucks in the mornings!
Oh! I can't forget! All of the servers seemed to have smiles on their faces as they took care of their tables, and our server, Alex was extremely polite and prompt. It's hard to find good service these days, so it was nice to see someone that still takes pride in their work. Thanks, Alex!

The Lox Benedict is simply delicious at Jinky's and so is the French Toast! I would highly recommend this place for breakfast and lunch. It's a cozy place with great food and staff.

Huge menu. Comfortable atmosphere. Delicious food.
Jinky's menu ranges from the average to the eccentric. Everyday they feature 5-6 different types of gourmet chili, which is my favorite part! Pair the chili with a half sandwich or salad, or add it to fries or a burger!
This place has something for everyone - I highly recommend it!
