My wife and I typically drop-in once every other week for a latte. I really like their soy latte. They use the Four Mile blend in their drinks unless otherwise mentioned. Great place to sit and enjoy a hot beverage, or to takeaway.

This is our favorite neighborhood coffee place and we are here every weekend plus weekday some mornings. Large open space with an industrial yet warm decor. Big windows make the place sunny and airy. It has once long common table and several smaller ones. Great...More

Best coffee around! It’s always a definite stop for us when we are in the area. There is limited seating, so we usually get our coffee to go. Pastries are tasty but pricy. People behind the counter could be friendlier. They are not the best.

While the Swings coffee was out of this world (top notch - 5-star coffee: no after taste, full, fresh ground coffee), the service was non-existent: no "pleases and thank you's from the baristas, could have cared less about the customer, there were no available seating...More

Their Nitro has such a creamy, non bitter coffee taste. Their season choices like the Rupert and the Sangria are incredible for variety. But the showstopper are the beans. There is a reason why so many local restaurants use their beans! Their staff is always...More

Really like the location and the large open space. The coffee is excellent and its just across from the dog park that we always go to. The only problem is that they don't allow dogs inside.

I lived right next door to Swing's and this was my go to for my caffeine fix on the way to work or a relaxing coffee on a Saturday morning. If you're looking for fancy lattes and such, head to Starbucks. Their hot and iced...More
