“Brilliant Breakfast!”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Visited this restaurant on the advice of some friends who live in the area and loved it! The waitress was incredibly friendly and helpful and rocking some awesome tattoos if my memory serves me correctly! Breakfast optios were suitable for all as we were there with a vegetarian, a sweet tooth and a protein addict! Was bliss being amongst the awesome décor and listening to The Doors LA Woman on the juke box! Awesome memories!

“Great late night food”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

For a late night spot- this is it- great variety in the menu- something for everyone (even vegans!) and open way late!

“Tasty Breakfast”
Reviewed May 23, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I visited and loved the decor, a real neighbourhood diner feel. We both had omlettes which were tasty and filling with plenty of potatoes and toasted bread. There was a lot of vegan, vegetarian and healthy options (all omlettes could be made with egg whites). Service was good and prices reasonable.

“It's lost it's zeal”
Reviewed May 20, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I been coming here for years and my last few visits we've had service issues and our food was overcooked. My $6 sausage was burnt. I asked for new and waitress balked. The Chili cheese fries tasted like canned chili with a heavy tomato undertone. All in all: food was pricey and not that great. Could have saved about half and gone to denny's

“Down home family restaurant in trendy Santa Monica”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Walking into this informal eatery reminds one of the Twilight Zone episode in which a NYC commuter from Connecticut steps off the train early and enters a quaint little town from the past. Swingers is a well-maintained restaurant that serves fresh and tasty fare that ranges from Mexican style to conventional American fare. I've had huevos rancheros that are perfect and grilled cheese with tomato and avocado that was perfect. And chocolate cupcakes made on site that are to due for. And the service is friendly and efficient. The clientele are as eclectic as the menu. And the prices are very reasonable, unlike most of the chi-chi restaurants in Santa Monica, which may serve fancier food but often not as good. Overall, this is a little gem of a place.
