Jinky's Cafe

With the fusion of American, Southwestern, and international flavors, this hip restaurant has the best Banana Chocolate Chip pancakes in Los Angeles. Although called Jinky’s, it’s anything but.

Sunny Santa Monica space serves a smorgasbord of tasty breakfast bites. – The Scene
The cheerful room buzzes with friendly chatter on the weekends. Animation cels from Disney and Warner Bros. hang on the lemon-yellow walls, and sunlight streams in through enormous windows along the front wall. Pancake flavors range from pumpkin to whole wheat, and French toast is covered in corn flakes. Omelettes and scrambles are stuffed with Jody Maroni's sausage and Chili My Soul gourmet chili. Various salads and sandwiches are offered for lunch.

Amazing! – I've been going to Jinky's for the past couple of years and have never looked back! Although the wait can be long if arriving after ten, the food always makes the wait inconsequential. The Flaky French Toast with strawberries and chocolate chips (not always on the menu, but always available) is truly out of this world while the Santa Fe Scramble and the Bombay Scramble (egg whites and no oil) or fantastic for the more health conscious.

The Service does lack with some waitresses, while others are really nice and attentive. If you really hate your waitress tell the manager or ask not to be sat in her section, I'm sure they will be more than accommodating.

All in all, great, amazing, out of this world food right around the corner!

Fun and Yummy – I think this place is a great addition to Santa Monica's breakfast choices. While there's a wait at busy times, the staff is friendly, the food is delicious and there's always interesting people-watching to be had. There's free coffee while you wait (a la John O'Groats) and seats outside the door. It's walking distance from my place, which is a tremendous plus for a relaxing weekend breakfast, and all the out of town guests love it too. Try eating at the counter...you meet great people that way!
