I was in Temecula solo for relaxation and met up with some friends at the Swing Inn Cafe...a delightful surprise! If you are in a hurry on the weekend, don't bother stopping in...it was about a 30 minute wait for a booth. The wait was well worth it...food was down home cooking with some lovely twists. You can't go wrong... More

Good down home cooking. An amazing breakfast menu and reasonably priced. Be sure to enjoy a milkshake in the afternoon....made the old fashioned way!

It's been there for a LONG time and had great reviews so we had to give it a try when we were in town in May. The food was good and you can't beat the price so we went again this visit in November and once again we weren't disappointed. Nothing fancy but good food and service.

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.
