Order at the counter, get your number and sit down outside. Located right on Hwy 101. The service isn't the quickest….but it's a yummy place to eat. Dog friendly, head to shop at Hansens Surf next door and walk across 101 to the Self Realization Mediation Gardens… Great little local spot.

Swamis is great any time of the day but I really enjoy their breakfasts. I had their Acai bowl and it was fantastic, I ate the whole bowl! I have also had their pancakes and breakfast burritos, which are equally as good. The lunch menu is just as good and extensive, I highly recommend this place if you are look for great healthy food!

Swamis is a great place to go for any meal but it is THE place to go for breakfast in Encinitas. Try the Juevos rancheros, black egg burrito or chilaqueles and you won't regret it. Lots of good stuff for lunch as well, such as the spicy turkey wrap. Food may take a little while to arrive if its a weekend and its packed, but it's worth the wait. Slow down and appreciate the ambiance, as all the seating is outdoors, and gaze at the self realization fellowship across the street or the skinny palms lining the sidewalk. Swamis is an institution in Encinitas for a reason.

Me and my buddy where just driving down the 101 when we spotted Swami's restaurant, locals poring out of the building in line for food. We pulled over to see what the hype was about. To tell you the truth i was suspect at first, at least until i took my first bite of chilaquiles. This mixture of tortilla chips, eggs, cheese and jalapeños was the best i have ever had. Topped with fresh avocado and sour cream the eggs melted in my mouth with a burst of heat and then the creamy texture of that ripe avocado sent it over the edge. Great freaking breakfast, plus Swamis offers fresh juice and wheat grass shots yum yum. Also plenty of healthy gluten free and vegetarian and vegan options make this spot good for everyone..

A college friend recommended this place for breakfast and what a breakfast it was. Very healthy and filling. The wheat waffles were great and the omelette were delicious.
