    I love Jinky's! Just tried the Rosemary Chicken Omelet, the chicken was a little dry and under seasoned but the overall taste of the omelet was amazeballs!

    I've been coming to Jinky's for many years and this is one of my favorite breakfast spots. Love trying different kinds of chili they have. Ask for samples if you're not sure which one to get.

    Great breakfast/brunch spot, but no alcohol, beer, or wine. Good sized portions. Try a delicious crepe or omelet.
