We very much enjoyed our visit to this reasonably priced (for California) diner. The food was fresh an delicious with a definite organic bent to it. The decor of the restaurant had a nice local flair. It was also a good choice when compared to much of the pub fare that is closer to the Santa Monica pier.

Stopped in here while on Spring Break visiting the Santa Monica Pier & shopping at 3rd Street Promenade. Food was really good. I had the Chargrilled chicken sandwich with onion rings. My daughter had the teriyaki chicken breast with side of fruit. All was very good.

A pot of coffee was brought to my table right away. My perfectly cooked Belgium waffle and scrambled eggs arrived hot and sooner than expected. Delicious! There are tables for four and booths available. Expect to wait for a table on the weekends. Free parking for 90 minutes is available very nearby. I think this is the best American breakfast in Santa Monica and I highly recommend Jinky’s Cafe.

Had the hot chilli omelette and it was fantastic. Place was packed when I left so I’d advise not arriving too late at the weekends

Junky’s was recommended by the concierge at the Shore Hotel where we were staying. 2 blocks from the hotel and from the beach. What a great place for breakfast which they serve all day. Very generous portions of the stuff you love: waffles, pancakes, crepes, eggs of all styles all served by an attentive staff seeking to please. Casual atmosphere and perhaps a short wait to get in but well worth the wait. Once seated the service is prompt and efficient. No need to try anywhere else for breakfast.
