The setting is fun, food is good

We love this local establishment. The staff is mostly friendly...sometimes a bit rushed to be friendly. The food is basic diner style but the whole ambience makes it taste great. Breakfast is our favorite but watch what time you go as the wait can be long.

We stopped by for lunch while shopping in Old Town Temecula. I ordered the egg salad sandwich which was very fresh and tasty. The only drawback was I found several pieces of shells in it. My husband has the BLT and said it was excellent. The waitress was very friendly and she offered great service. We didn't order a shake... More

When I hear from my buddy in the morning after a late night, and he says "let's get some breakfast" I just say OK and hang up the phone. I know exactly where to go, the Swing Inn. I've been eating at this place since my family moved to Temecula in the 80's when I was a kid. Loved it... More

This place has the perfect hash browns, crispy on the outside, soft and moist on the inside and full of flavor. Always busy and the scene of classic car enthusiast meet-ups. It may be a small place but it is a definite Old Town Temecula fixture that will be here to stay!

This is my first time visiting Temecula, CA. A historic pretty town. I had my lunch at Swing Inn Cafe, the hostess was smiling and greeting me the moment I walked in. This gave me good vibe and I felt welcomed. The food is good portion and moderately priced. The servers were courteous and attentive. Great price and great atmosphere.

It's not about the food at this place. It's the wait staff, they're terrific. Breakfast is standard fare. It's o.k. I have had the eggs Benedict. I'm picky about my eggs and these poached eggs were overdone. The next time I ordered two eggs over easy and they were perfect. The sausage had a little spice to it and was... More

Love this sweet cozy restaurant. Great for breakfast and lunch ( I have never been for dinner) Make sure you order the breakfast sweet roll, it's amazing.

I met one of my daughters here this AM for breakfast. It's small but they seem to manage. My daughter had bacon, eggs & toast and said it was very good. I had a chili omelet, hash browns and toast. It was great. I will definitely be back.

This place has been serving food since 1927. I think they have it down by now. My service was outstanding. We never waited for coffee refills or checking on us. Our breakfast was delicious. No complaints at all.
