Great for that "US diner experience" especially if you have their All American Breakfast (cheaper during the week before 11am).

So I'm looking for a late night diner in Santa Monica. I come across this place and go in for a late snack. The environment is quite......eclectic. The food is average at best. It's about average for what you'll find at 1 o'clock in the morning anywhere in Los Angeles. The service was decent but some of the clientele were... More

Hip throwback coffee shop/diner. Food is great at a fair price. Highly recommend the early bird special (served to 11AM) with 2 eggs, choice of french toast or pancakes and choice of breakfast meat for 7.25. Seen from knocked up was filmed here.

This a recommendation ft someone who used to study in Santa Monica, so we were confident that it would be great. We were not disappointed. The milkshakes were scrumptious. I had the chocolate/coffee combo and it was divine, as were the vanilla and strawberry versions I sampled. The food was plentiful and well cooked. The onion rings were crispy and... More

We have been going to Swingers for years -over a decade. Every time I come to L.A. (5 or 6 times a year) we go there at least once a visit. It used to be great - food, service, price was fair. We arrived and waited a few minutes to be sat. No problem there. Once, in our booth we... More

Had a couple of good breakfasts here while vacationing. The food and service were both good. The prices were strong for a diner, but then again, it is Santa Monica. I'd go back again and recommend it to others.

Breakfast edged out dinner here - in fact some of us opted for breakfast for our dinner visit. Part of this is the early morning rise and shine aspect of the place, with hip service and great food. Avocado toast was nice - more spread than chunks, with a side of bacon. Dinner was fine - this IS a diner... More

They have a great variety of menu items including gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian and American fare. Service was good and server was very attentive. Our group had vegan tacos, gf pancakes, their home made quinoa veggie burger, and tuna sandwich. Everyone was pleased with their meals. We definitely will be eating there again.

The menu is the greatest mix of decadent comfort food and ultra healthy delicious offerings. So, angel/devil - they both can eat. The servers are ultra hip but so friendly and efficient. And the prices are friendly.

A very good breakfast , reasonably priced, and served by a friendly staff can be found at a Swingers. The menu is varied and the coffee is exceptionally good.

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.
