My Fav Spot for Lunch

I get the fish tacos every time I come downtown OS to the library or farmers market. The restaurant can get very noisy, so get them to go, then eat at one of the benches on Mission and enjoy the new landscaping. Don't come here if you are in a hurry, especially at mealtimes. I try to order... read more

The server ignored us as we entered as she was too busy chatting. She continued to do so until we went up to her and asked for a menu. Pity. Food was ok. Would have been better if anyone had cared that we were there or not.

Healthy food very good and outside tables so little paw friends can join there human owners. Large selection of food dishes, try the pancakes, yummy. It is a nice outside area but could be better for the traffic noise. But beggars can't be choosy if you want outside seating at the Oceanside one. It is self serve to a degree... More

The original Swamis sits across the street from the Self Realization Center and gardens in Encinitas, a beautiful location. The place is small and crowded but fun and tasty !

We had a very large group (16 of us)and they were able to accommodate us easily. I was a little surprised by the ordering process, you order from the counter and then go have a seat. Not quite what I'm used to at a place that has waitstaff. Once we placed our order the food came out extremely fast. They... More

Went to Swami's for breakfast with a large group. While the ordering process was slow - wait in line to order at the counter, get your drink and your silverware and napkin, the food came out quite quickly. So many great specials in addition to the great regular menu options it was hard to decide. Plus watching the food being... More

As others have noted it very good. If they prepared their food a little differently it would be fabulous. Use sun dried tomatoes in the Greek omelet.

Came here for breakfast and ordered an omelet. Excellent perfectly cooked, warm toast, great coffee refillable too. Cops came in for coffee that's a good sign too. Place has great painted mural of oceanside inside with surf theme, booths and tables inside and outside. Organic cooking without being exotic, perfect. Ordered at counter they brought food out to us.

Since Swami's opened in Oceanside, this has been the family favorite restaurants for the great healthy food, service, selections ever since. Friends we have brought here have travelled a long way to return for more of the great food. Hopefully the restaurant will expand to accommodate the great demand of locals and tourist alike. Prices are outstanding too.
