Local diner in scenic area

Stopped on the way north to i10, the place was pretty busy with an avg 10-15 minute wait. The wait staff while busy were attentive. The cinnamon rolls were delicious if you like butter. The super bowl was everything i look for in a breakfast -hashbrowns, eggs, meet, cheese and cream gravy. Tad... read more

Left San Diego with Swing Inn Cafe planned as the target destination food stop. I was not disappointed. When working in the area years ago I most always stopped here for breakfast and was never let down. Visited for late afternoon / evening and found that quality has been maintained and food was great. Service was excellent and the ambiance... More

nothing fancy, just good food and good service at reasonable prices, fast service, right in Old Town, where nothing is cheap.

We have been eating here for over 20+ years. Home town feel and great breakfast foods. One of my favorite places in Old Town!

Hadn't been to the Swing Inn for awhile, so we decided to "swing" by! It's still consistently good. If you aren't into "comfort food," this probably isn't the best choice for you. No arugula, tofu or molecular gastronomy here. If you're looking for hearty soups, chicken fried steak, and mashed potatoes, you're in for a treat. Looking forward to more... More

Drove in from out of town, and have never been to Temecula before. This place felt like it really did not fit in. We were there on a Saturday night and the streets and bars were filled. This gave us a great escape to sneak inside to some quiet and get some food. No waiting around, quaint atmosphere, good omelets.... More

I have to say that I was really pulling for this little restaurant as it is right in old town Temecula. We tried it three times and were disappointed each time. The food was only fair. The service was poor. Each time we had to wait an exceptionally long time to get our food. The second time the food was... More

found this place by luck and we weren't disappointed. It was like stepping back in time and the staff treated us like locals, the food was almost too much to eat, but very good. It was a great start to our weekend in Temecula.

You really feel like you are stepping into Temecula's past when you enter this restaurant. The breakfast menu is pretty typical so I really couldn't grade it over average. But, the history, the setting and the fun servers make it more of an attraction and raised it's score. The good basic food was just a sideline for me. This is... More
