Packed house at 11AM on a Saturday is a good sign.
Service was really great and our server had some wit to him which made our late morning more entertaining. Food was really great. Every dish ordered from our group of 10 looked appetizing.
If you're fighting a hangover go for the pot of coffee and the hangover burger with tots. Definitely hits the spot. Great dark roast coffee, and that chipotle ketchup is amazing. Don't forget the tater tots on the side! Try that or the California... I can attest to those two at least but like i said... everything everyone ordered looked great.
They had ESPN on the TVs so I got a chance to see what I missed the day before and free wifi for those data conscious smartphone users. Huge plus!
Parking is a hassle since the lot is small so be patient or find it on the street if you can.

Great food after our 5k. The bottomless mimosas were delicious and free flowing. Everyone enjoyed their
breakfasts. We ordered tater tots to start and they didn't come until after we got our food, so that was the only negative... And it took a little while to get our order in. But other than the tots, our food did come out pretty fast. All in all a great Saturday brunch spot on the patio.
PS - I thought the "pea guacamole" was weird.

I have no idea what some of these crazy people are saying, but THIS PLACE IS PHENOMENAL!
1. Its the best place to have a beer in Studio City.
They carry BUD LIGHT PLATINUMS! FOR ONLY 2$ ALWAYS!
Not just at happy hour... but from the moment they open till the moment they close!
(Ice Cold and plentiful. You won't find that price or brand anywhere else in town.)
2. The Menu is great. Its huge. Its affordable. No matter what your eating habits are, they've got you covered. I recommend: The Banana Fosters Crepes. The Chili (Theres like 10 different styles, all homemade!), The freaking flaky, French Toast is crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside, My girlfriend loves the salads there.
3. The service is awesome. We know them by name now, they know us by name now. Thats the kind of place you want to be. They know what i want as soon as i walk in the door. Thats the service anyone wants right?! The Management is so sweet, she checks up on us all the time.
4. I'm in the music industry and i book ALL of my meetings here. Theres a HEATED outdoor seating area, you can bring your DOGGIES (my girlfriend brings her chihuahuas and they love it too). FREE WIFI for whatever you're getting into. The (important) Games are always on the screen! The artwork is super cool, Elvis and Marilyn are everywhere. The music station they have playing is always good. James Brown kind of vibes!

Huge menu. Comfortable atmosphere. Delicious food.
Jinky's menu ranges from the average to the eccentric. Everyday they feature 5-6 different types of gourmet chili, which is my favorite part! Pair the chili with a half sandwich or salad, or add it to fries or a burger!
This place has something for everyone - I highly recommend it!
REVIEWS Hillary K. 11/27/2012 ***** VALLEY VILLAGE, CA
I cannot believe I have just discovered this awesome place! $12.99 all you can drink Mimosa? Um, hell yeah! I had the chili scrambler on tater tots with the turkey chili the server recommended, and it was to die for! I kid you not, so damn good.
REVIEWS Harry P. 11/25/2012 ***** Studio City, CA
Jinky's Studio Cafe is tops for breakfast, dinner and happy hour.
My partner and I have had mostly breakfast here - all items were very tasty. Our dinner experience was great as well. The service is always friendly and prompt and hardly ever a wait for our orders even on weekend mornings!
The only drawback is the parking - a very tight shared lot with restricted slots. Luckily we live near enough to walk down and walk our meal off on the way back.
REVIEWS M P. 11/05/2012 **** Torrance, CA
What a great breakfast. Love the Yukatan Quesadilla!
REVIEWS Eddie O. 10/22/2012 **** VALLEY VILLAGE, CA
Yummy brunch place in Sherman Oaks. Great variety of different dishes ranging from egg dishes, pancakes, french toast and specials. Fairly large portions also for you big eaters.
Will definitely go back. And dog friendly.
REVIEWS Lindsley M. 10/10/2012 **** Manhattan, NY
A yummy place for breakfast-casual-super friendly service-I had a green and white egg white omelette and it was delish-not greasy at all-and the coffee was great!
REVIEWS Catherine I. 10/2/2012 ***** Northridge, CA
Jinky's has a menu sure to please any craving for breakfast, lunch, or brunch. Sweets, savories, sandwiches & egg dishes that delight. My brunchy favorite, the Green & White omlette with a Cafe Latte. So good.
REVIEWS Ron T. 9/23/2012 ***** Sherman Oaks, CA
I've been going to Jinky's for years! Not only do I love drinking their tasty coffee that they have out for you while you're waiting for a table, but the service is always super friendly and the food is even better! Their dishes are unique and generous portions of yummy-ness! Just go early to find parking! You won't regret it.
REVIEWS Dominic G. 9/11/2012 ***** Valley Village, CA
Sunday mornings after church are spent at Jinky's Cafe where a great breakfast with excellent service and smiling help is a wonderful way to start the day. Thank you everyone at Jinky's.
REVIEWS Denise S. 9/10/2012 **** Monterey, CA
This was in walking distance to the hotel we stayed at... like it shared the parking lot, so the location was amazing.
My bf and I went for Sunday breakfast and if for some reason we had to go back to Agoura Hills, we'd stop and eat again. The breakfast was very good. The menu is HUGE. It takes some time to give it a look over.
He got the corned beef Benedict with Jinky's potatoes, and loved it. He inhaled it. The taters were a hash themselves, so it was a plate of hashes and when you smother it in Chalula it is heaven on a plate.
I got the Green and White Omelette with tater tots. The omelette was legit. Full of asparagus, broccoli, spinach, white onion, and feta cheese, then topped with Swiss cheese and avocado. White and Green at its finest.
The tater tots were on par with Burger Kings. I don't get the hype. But the omelette made up for the tots for sure.
REVIEWS Elaine K. 9/9/2012 ***** Sherman Oaks, CA
Best breakfast in town!
My favorites are the chilli jumble, pumpkin pancakes, chocolate chip pancakes, and flakey French toast. Best pumpkin pancakes ever!
REVIEWS Jessie H. 9/9/2012 ***** Studio City, CA
My fiance and I eat here weekly... we love it! We are always spoiled and well taken care of by Alex (best waiter EVER, just adore Him). The food is amazing and the atmosphere is hella chill. You have the option to eat indoor or outdoors. Oh, it's also the 'norm' to eat amongst celebrities here; ya, Jinky's is THAT much of the 'effin ish!
REVIEWS Ryan M. 8/24/2012 ***** Los Angeles, CA
After now coming here countless times I had to Yelp review Jinkys, it being so close to my house in SC and in between my office off Ventura & Lankershim it has been my stopping point both happy hour and reverse happy hour.
$3 dollar Stella's in LA is all I have to say.. #StayThirsty
REVIEWS Robyn W. 8/19/2012 ***** Los Angeles, CA
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! :)
REVIEWS erol a. 8/19/2012 **** South Pasadena, CA
What a great food and great day.
I was not to sure when I was walking to this place how the food was going to be, because I had so many bad meals in past few days almost not waning to go out
but I had a great lunch.
I loved their Quinoia Salad which had a great flavor artichokes , and I order with tofu and love the dressing olive oil and lemon dressing was just perfect for the Salad.
I will definetly go back there again.
We were 9 people and everybody same to love their food.
Great Place Great Food.
