The breakfasts, coffee and speed that the food comes out is great. Never a bad meal, but the ordering process is not very efficient.

This is a great place to eat. We went there for breakfast. Absolutely delicious. Great service. I had the lobster benedict. The best I ever had. Seriously! My son had the fresh waffles -huge, with fresh fruit and bacon, it was also delicious. Definitely recommend this place.

Been here several times. Great self serve coffee in lots of flavors. Healthy breakfast as well as the standards. Love the acai bowl but get 1/2 size unless you are a big eater.

We stopped in just after they opened at 7 AM for a weekday breakfast. I had a nice veggie omelette, fruit, and an English muffin. My husband had eggs and hash. We were served in record time since we were the first ones there. It is not a full-service place; you order at the counter and they bring it to... More

We were in town for the holidays and took a walk along the beach and then on up the nicely revitalized Mission Ave to Swami's for lunch. I haven't had a hamburger in a restaurant for years since it is so rare you can find organic beef. But when asked the server checked with the kitchen and assured me it... More

I opted for the BLTA salad with added chicken, which didn't skimp on any ingredients--including a duo of blue cheese crumbles AND... More

My wife and I went there three time when they first opened up, I think it was around two years ago. My wife just bought me a really good burrito this morning after church and we said to each other, why haven't we been going there?? You have to stop in and see for yourself!
