My friend and I go to Jinky's almost every weekend. The place is usually pretty packed, but worth the wait. The food is great. I usually get the Chicken and Herb omelette with potatoes. The potatoes are AMAZING.
The food could be considered a little pricey compared to a few other breakfast places around the area, but I think it's worth it. I've always found the waiters to be pretty great, if not, hilarious.

We had breakfast, and the variety on the menu is very good. The wait was short for an outside table (1 pm Sunday) The Service was great and the food we had was very tasty Much better than I expected".
On our second time eating here, we are still amazed at the great choices and combinations of food available.
The service is always great.

I have driven by Jinky's for almost a year without ever going in. After my boyfriend and his friends went in and said it was really good I decided to give Jinky's a try. That was maybe about 2 weeks ago and I've been back 3 times since! I love this spot. I even brought my best friend in who doesn't always agree with my choices of restaurants.
The food is excellent and the service is fast and friendly. I've only gone for brunch/breakfast. I've had the french toast, lox and the eggs benedict. All satisfying and delicious.
We've for sure found a regular spot on Ventura for good food! :)

Food is great. I never had bad service. Not sure what happened to all these other poor folks. Granted, when I went on a Saturday or Sunday morning without a reservation I did have to wait a while for a table. But that's my fault for not calling ahead. Haven't had lunch or dinner here. Just breakfast. The eggs Benedict are fantastic.

Great omelettes and funky pancakes keep me coming back time and time again! I have to try it all and with the huge portions it'll take a while! But that's ok!

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!

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.

REVIEWS Self O. 1/8/2012 ***** Van Nuys, CA
It's known as a breakfast place, but I like it very much for dinner. The tandoori chicken salad is really good.
REVIEWS William L. 1/3/2012 **** Orange, CA
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
REVIEWS Matthew V. 1/1/2012 **** North Hollywood, CA
I originally would stop by to grab coffee but then later tried their breakfast and then became a fan of their food. The attraction was the selection of breakfast items that seemed to be influenced based on Mexican cuisine.
Jinkys make a good breakfast burrito called the Desperado that contains ortega chilies, cheddar cheese, chopped potatoes, chicken chorizo, and scrambled eggs. The burrito is served with side of guacamole and sour cream.
The Santa Fe scramble is a tasty egg scramble dish containing diced green onions, tomatoes, cilantro, corn tortilla strip, and topped with melted cheddar cheese. The food portion is large so bring an appetite if you do order this dish.
Another great breakfast is the Chili Jumble which is an egg scramble topped with your choice of gourmet chili, red onions, avocado and cheddar cheese served over potatoes. The dish is food heaven.
Jinky's has a large breakfast menu including: waffles, Eggs benedict, crepes, omelets, pancakes, lox plates, and much more. Drop by sometime for one of the better places that serves breakfast in LA.
