I read the mixed reviews but the aromas coming from this cafe and one look inside at the clean, light and tasteful interior sold us to give it a try. We were on the early side for lunch and there were a good number of patrons finishing up appealing looking breakfasts. Service was prompt from a smiling Emily, even though it appeared she was the only server. The lunch menu was not extensive but we both found selections quickly. The prices were very reasonable, even low. My husband loves burgers and Pinky’s did not disappoint. He selected a house salad as his side. It was a generous amount of very fresh greens with a bit of tomato, carrot and red onion. I opted for the pork carnitas tacos. 2 street tacos with tomatoes and avocado crema served with lime wedges and some house made tortilla chips. Very nice although the pork needed a bit more seasoning in my humble opinion. I added a bit of the hot sauce on the table. We are here for a month so will return and try the breakfast.

The staff was fantastic and the food was a perfect start to the day. The scrambles offer fresh eggs with several options. Check it out for a reasonably priced, relaxing breakfast.

We went to Pinky’s for brunch on the recommendation of locals. The coffee machine was broken, so we ordered tea. The water for the tea was not hot and smelled of coffee, so we sent them back and ordered orange juice, which arrived after several inquiries just as we were finishing our meals. The food took a while as well. My omelet was so dry as to be almost inedible. The pancakes were thin, probably from over-beating of the batter. Part of the problem was that the entire restaurant, though not large, was staffed by only three people, the cook, an assistant cook who also buses tables, and a very busy waitress trying to handle eight indoor tables and two outdoor tables. We might have hit them on an off day. They do have outdoor seating for dog owners with an awning overhead to keep off the sun.

Pinky’s quickly became our favorite spot for breakfast during a short stay in Livingston. Located on Main Street, it has a local atmosphere, fast friendly service and excellent food. The specials are a fun cuisine adventure or you can have perfectly poached eggs and some of the best pancakes I’ve eaten, if you prefer to play it safe. Portions are generous and prices tourist area moderate. Waitresses are efficient and very engaging. Get a Pinky’s coffee cup while you are there and enjoy free refills each visit.

In the main section of town. A place to get your day off to a good start with a healthy and hearty breakfast that includes gluten-free options and good coffee. The oatmeal bowl will last you all morning and through a mid-day raft trip. Check it out!
