Breakfast and lunch is all they serve at this mini-mall marvel, but that's enough to keep the place hopping every day of the week as patrons clamor for the banana-flake-covered French toast, massive omelets, and wide variety of chili dishes supplied by the Chili My Soul purveyor. During the week, many a business meal goes on. But the weekends find Jinky's jammed with families sitting around cozy wood tables. Kids love the unusual pancake choices, which range from pumpkin to blueberry-and-almond. Beverages run the gamut too, including fresh juices and gourmet coffees. Prices are moderately expensive. Portions are hearty and often enough to share with kids or other adults.
On the weekends for brunch, the wait is serious, sometimes an hour or more. To avoid the wait, arrive between 8:00 and 9:00am.
In a small mall at the corner of Stansbury Ave. and Ventura Blvd. on the south side of the boulevard.
