This cafe is my favorite place in Temecula Old Town to eat and relax. Their food is fantastic and their staff is great! Always welcomed and have never had anything but the best rafts! I highly recommend walking around Old Town Temecula and grabbing a bite at the Swing Inn Great History here too!

It was a busy Labor Day weekend Saturday that we chose the Swing Inn Cafe based upon a suggestion from our hotel. A party of 6, arriving around 9:30am, we only had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. Classic breakfasts of eggs, bacon, sausage gravy and biscuits, pancakes, and huevos rancheros as a special, to name a few.... More

New to town we saw all the Harleys and knew it would be good, it was better than good! As we walked in we saw fresh made pies and asked about banana whipped cream; we ended up with the biggest piece of banana chocolate peanut whipped cream pie you can imagine, lucky there was 2 of us to share. We... More

I was recommended the Swing Inn for breakfast and it didn't dissapoint. Food was good, service friendly and the milkshakes are delicious - if you try one, the chocolate is the best. Definitly worth a visit as it's in the heart of the old town which is like stepping back in time. It definitly sparks the imagination. Enjoy!

The quality of the food is fair at best and the service isn't much better. As far as atmosphere it is a quaint little diner and on the weekends a lot of old classic cars show up there.

We've eaten at the Swing Inn Café several times and love the food. The environment is ... home town, rustic western café. What I'd like to see is the political TV news channel changed to something less unwelcoming. There's plenty on besides the news channel they have playing all day, or simply turn the TV off and allow patrons to... More

Chose this place because they offered pastrami sandwiches, which I consider a delicacy. We got a table immediately, though the place was almost full. Service was quick and friendly, and my pastrami showed up in a short time along with a bowl of navy bean soup. First the soup; remarkably good, laden with carrots and other veggies, very flavorful. The... More

We really enjoyed our breakfast in this little place in the main part of old temecula. We got great service, very attentive considering how packed the place was. Our food came out perfect and quick, my wife really like the breakfast burritto, I had standard eggs and sausage, great hash browns. We will return next time in town, can't go... More
