“The best Oatmeal Pancakes ever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

The only pancakes I will eat are the Oatmeal pancakes at Pinky's. It was one of our favorite breakfast spot. We just took our out of town guest from Las Vegas there this morning. The place is small but cozy. We are coffee drinkers and Pinky's has by far the best coffee compared to all the other breakfast spots in the area. Our kids love it there too. The wait can be a little long if you have more than 4 people, but worth the wait.

“Phenomenal Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

What a find!!! Before even getting to the delicious food, they have a terrific serve yourself coffee set up with fun mugs and 4 different excellent types of coffee.
My wife had a Mexican fritatta which she loved and my oatmeal pancakes were amahzing! Super moist and flavorful. The rosemary breakfast potatoes were awesome as well. The service was great and we will absolutely go back every trip to Tampa.

“Good Eggs Benedict”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

I'm rating this place as Very Good because their breakfast was very clean, as in not greasy. If you have been to a First Watch, John G's in Manalapan, FL or Mel's Diner in Naples, FL for breakfast this place is similar. Very homey and fresh food. Loved the potato hash with rosemary.

“Fresh & Tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

I googled breakfast in Tampa and I was ever so glad to find this place! We walked in to a casual, laid back atmosphere that was perfect for us. The coffee was self serve so it allowed to us to relax and have as many cups as we liked. I enjoyed the diverse food choices. Everything from scrambled eggs, pancakes, breakfast quesadillas, fresh fruit & granola, oatmeal, stuffed french toast and beyond. It had something for everyone at affordable prices and exceptional service. We were seated, greeted and served a really wonderful, delectable breakfast/brunch! Diner atmosphere and cost with five star restaurant quality!
