We loved Jinky's. We walked there almost every morning for breakfast. Great menu - healthy choices. Sat outside and enjoyed CA! Highly recommend.

We were referred to Jinky's by the hotel staff where we were staying. This is a cool little place. When we got there it was busy but we were seated quickly. The menu is extensive but not expensive. It was hard to decide what to get, so many choices but thats a good thing! You can order a very standard breakfast or go for some very creative options! We were impressed at how friendly and efficient the staff were and when the food arrrived we were again impressed. Jinky's is overall a very friendly place with a neighborhood feel and great food. We were only there for breakfast but Im sure the other meals are good too. If I lived in Santa Monica I would go there all the time!

We headed here after hitting the Santa Monica farmer's market on Saturday morning. The food was great - I got the Huevos Chili with their mexicali chili. The place was pretty busy, but we were able to get seats at the counter. The ambiance was great and the food was awesome! I'd definitely come back here.

Everyone enjoyed breakfast here. We left our hotel to come here since it was recommended by the concierge and we weren't disappointed.

Jinky's is yummy! Kids said it is the best hot chocolate they have ever had. Pancakes are yummy, coffee is yummy. Small place, so get there early.
