If you like a hometown diner this is your place

We come to the Swing Inn at least one Sunday a month for breakfast after church services. Some weeks it is packed and there is a small wait. Other weeks we are quickly escorted to a table. Waitresses are very attentive --coffee refilled quickly. When you make your order you get what you... read more

Ate here while on a trip down memory lane with my 80 year old father. He would eat breakfast here every morning while he was driving semi-trucks in the 60's and 70's. He said the food and the staff was still the best. He was right. We rearranged out travel plans so we could eat at the Swing Inn one... More

If you like country cooking........this is the place!! Everyone in our group lives on country cooking and not a single soul had any complaints about their order. We are quite the country cooking connoisseurs. Being from Texas we took some ribbing for our accents but, it was all in good fun. The service was excellent and a lot of fun.... 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

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 pricey, but it seems that everything in... More

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
