Love Breakfast at Swamis. Everything is so fresh and served with a smile! I highly recommend the Acai bowl. It is definitely large enough for two. Hope to be back soon!

Great food, reasonably priced. I like their system of ordering food at the cash register when you come in. No waiting to be served. Coffee is self serve with many options including Kona blend, Colombian and Ethiopian coffee. No waiting for refills, just grab it....More

While visiting Encinitas, we ate here one morning. The portions are huge & delicious. It's impossible to walk away hungry from Swami's Café! Coffee is self-serve, so you can try many kinds. Thankful for the option to add almond milk instead of cream or soy.

We both ordered the mahi mahi wrap. Big mistake. The fish was mushy and coated with an untasty hot sauce. Way too much raw onion. We fed the fish to our dogs and left. At $12 each it's a bad deal.

Wonderful, fast service, and loved the giant shrimp salad! A great place to enjoy the morning paper while seeing the sights of the area on 101.

I've been coming here for years and still enjoy the laid-back vibe, good food, and value. I usually come for breakfast and love the eggs Benedict, huevos rancheros, and chilaquiles. This visit I opted for an organic Mexican coffee and found it delicious. Counter service...More
