Fabulous and Friendly

The menu is sure to please. Lots of delicious choices so you have to keep going back to sample your next favorite dish. I had the California Scramble. I don't know how they can make a scrambled egg combo so delicious, but it was the best I've had. Must be the fresh ingredients, abundant portions... read more

Nothing fancy here. They have the cool, surfer, basic funky healthy lifestyle here. Simple wooden tables and booths with an outside area. I ordered a bison burger with their sweet potato fries. It was good but I thought it would have more flavor than a regular burger. So I was a little disappointed. Fries were, well regular sweet potato fries.... More

From the moment we arrived and were seated at the open table of our choice, to the huge fresh fruit filled acai bowl and over sized seared tuna sandwich, these people know how to smile and provide excellent service. Will definitely return.

In mid-February, I ate here for two lunches in a row and WOW! Definitely two of the best lunch experiences I've ever had! The food was really good, fresh, and not too expensive. The restaurant is laid back and comfy with outdoor and indoor seating. Twice, I had the same food -- a hot turkey sandwich with bacon and avocado... More

Had breakfast here one morning; lobster eggs benedict and whole grain granola waffles with fresh fruit. Both were spectacular. Sat outside at counter facing the street. Were surprised by all the bikers (not motorized) that rode by and all the people walking dogs. Nice, tranquil setting and interesting food.

We went to Swami's again while visiting sunny & warm California (which was great because it was wicked cold back home in Massachusetts!!)!!! The menu here is varied and breakfast is always delicious! Orders are taken quickly and delivered quickly to your table!! The ABC omelet was my choice (Avocado, Bacon, & Cheese)!! Fruit is always my choice instead of... More

Nice place with an old school decor. We had breakfast and it was good but not great. Benedict, burritos and sandwiches. All tasty but none very good. We will not come back for the food but for the atmosphere.

Each year we spend 2-4 weeks in Carlsbad and this is our favorite restaurant in the area. Food is always good, large selection, prices reasonable, funky beach shack atmosphere and the staff is always with it. Rather than one server only for your table you may find 3 or 4 participating in your service. Open for breakfast and lunch. Seating... More
