“Delicious breakfast in Santa Monica”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

I chose this restaurant based on the positive reviews in TA. My teenaged kids and I were not disappointed. The menu offers unique combinations, for example egg-white omelet with Boursin cheese. Fantastic.

I found the opening time of 7:30am a bit late for a restaurant specializing in breakfast. The place gets quite full by 8:30am.

“Excellent!!!!!”
Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

The food was so good I came back three times. I looked forward to waking up in my hotel room overlooking the beach so I can go get breakfast at Jinky's!! The staff and food were both great and worth a trip. A must stop in Santa Monica!!

“Great breakfast in Santa Monica”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

We travelled from Hollywood to have breakfast here. What a great decision! The service was excellent, and the food was even better! They gave us a complimentary taste of the 6 different types of chilli that were on the menu for the morning, and then the meals were delivered quite fast considering the place was packed! The meals were HUGE, and despite our best efforts, none of us finished them. Very reasonably priced. Would definitely call in again if we weren't on our way back to Australia...
