Have eaten here a few times now, tonight was the first time to try dinner. It wasn't that busy, which was a real plus. Service was prompt and attentive. I still ordered one of their crepes...more of a breakfast item,but it's delicious so why not? And we had a caprese sandwich and the nachos. The nachos were only rated on "5" out of a 10 for spicy...but I found them extremely spicy. Loved my crepe. Dinner may be a better choice here, as it's always so busy at breakfast time.

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!

Friendly staff, great service, family atmosphere and a menu listing something for every taste --- that is what you'll find at Jinky's Kanan Cafe. We walked in without a reservation from the Homewood Suites just down the street. The folks at Jinky's were accommodating and welcoming, seating us at an outdoor table with a nice view of the landscape below their patio and even outfitting us with an outdoor heater.
My husband --- who is a very picky eater --- really enjoyed the Mexicali Fajitas. I highly recommend the Salmon Tikka Masala! This is dining at opposite ends of the spectrum while sitting at the same table! I was not kidding before when I said it was possible to find something for every taste! Jinky's also offers a decent kids menu.
All-in-all a great experience!

Stopped here on a drive down to L.A. with some friends who insisted we stop because it was one of their favorites. It was amazing. I got a stack of HUGE "Oaty Oaty Cakes" (Oat something or other pancakes) and they were fantastic, I ate the leftovers cold straight from the fridge the next morning and they were still amazing. Everyone I know who has been here has absolutely loved it and the staff are amazing, not to mention an awesome ambiance. Can't wait to go back.
