The meals are so fresh with lots of healthy options. The meal sizes are HUGE, two people could easily share. It is a very popular place, service is quick and efficient. I would definitely eat here again.

This place has great smoothies and delicious veggie burgers. Try the southwestern chipotle black bean burger with fries. They have several locations, but we like Carlsbad best due to the outdoor patio and longer hours. Great lunch spot!

Although the proximity is close to my job, so are many other restaurant choices. Yet this is my favorite place to eat in Oceanside while I'm at work. Not only is the food wonderful with many healthy options, I positively love the staff. They are professional, friendly, & fun. This is a must try spot!

Nothing fancy about this place except the menu. Healthy, fresh, local, tasty, inexpensive. We ate here two or three times a week while in Oceanside and will again when we return next year. Love it!

Really bad experience today. After 40 minutes of waiting for my food I finally got a server's attention. She came back and told me that my order was lost, and proceeded to tell me why it wasn't her fault. When then food finally came, it wasn't what I had ordered. I waited another 15 minutes for the right food before... More

Stopped by for breakfast Sunday and was pleasantly surprised to find a new decor in Swami's, new furniture, a nice upgrade. As always, the food was delicious and the coffee selection is grand. One of the best places for reasonable quality dining in the Oceanside/Carlsbad area.

Great breakfasts on the weekend and health sandwiches and soups. Always a crowd but the line goes down quick. Sit outside and watch the beach scene go by.

Without a doubt, this was one of the best burgers I have ever had, the Spinach-Feta Cheese with a Bun That Stayed TOGETHER ! For The WHOLE Burger. Usually, the bigger, better burger BUNS fall apart BEFORE you finish the burger; it happens a whole lot. The "Scrambler" was a Splendid Mix of Eggs, Cactus (Nopalitos), Veggies, and a delicious...
