Swingers swings!

I only put in reviews that are positive. If a place in bad I just let it die alone. Here we go, Swingers is the quintessential diner. An old IHOP built in the 60's is now transformed into a great diner food. Yes they have all the health minded additions though if you want a milkshake and greasy... read more

My husband and I visit Santa Monica every summer. When we do, our first and last meal is at Swingers, as are some meals in between. They have a big variety of plant-based, whole food selections which are all delicious (many meat options, too). The atmosphere is casual. And, the prices are reasonable. We love that breakfast is served all... More

At Swingers, they use fresh, organic products in a fun & inventive menu, with delicious results! Our first time here was wonderful...service was great and we all cleared our plates. Only drawback...booth was not large enough for four adults to sit comfortably. Bottom line is that the food was fresh and tasty with lots of healthy options...give it a try!

I really enjoyed having a nice American breakfasts here. The location is nice, the building from the outside is really cool and the concept is fun. I had granola and coffee, my friend had waffles with syrup. We loved it!

I was headed to a funeral and passed by Swingers. I was kind of early so I decided to go back and try their breakfast. It's kind of a "healthy eating" place. There are plenty of organic items on the menu. I ordered a spinach and mushroom omelet with cottage cheese. No bread, no potatoes. When the server placed the... More

My toast came amid when it had finally become completely cold my eggs arrived again. At least one had a runny yolk this time. But the waitstaff was very nice...

We meet up with family at Swingers on each trip to L.A. Swingers has a fun atmosphere, attentive staff, great service, good food and great desserts. There is something on the menu for everyone. I definitely recommend Swingers for your next visit to the Santa Monica area.

Sometimes all you want is good service a patty melt or salad to be happy. Swingers is a step back in time with friendly service, almost reminds me of an old diner. Had a Tuna Melt which I have to say brought back memories and was well cooked. We ordered a traditional cob salad that was well dressed with smoked... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
