“Food was fair, service was bad.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Had not been here in a few years, but every other breakfast place had huge waits. Now I remember why. Food was ok, eggs benedict were under cooked. The real problem was the service. It took forever. Be prepared for the 1 hour plus sit down. Not sure what the problem is as the place is not that big.

“Great Staff, fast service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Always busy, always friendly, fast service and good food.
If you don't like the extra butter/oil your food is cooked with, just pat it down with an extra napkin and you are good to go and still very tasty.

“Good but not quite great!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

Today was my first visit to the Swift Creek Café. It was suggested by a friend of mine who had visited the Café in February. I don't think a restaurant can go very wrong with serving breakfast food. I had "The Favorite" your basic breakfast with 2 eggs over easy with toast, ham and grilled potatoes. It was done just right. The grilled potatoes were delicious! My friend had the fruit bowl. It was loaded with fresh berries. She was not disappointed. My other friend had the "Spanish Scramble" . The service was prompt and efficient. I would go back again.

“Ehh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

I went to this cafe and the service was nice and friendly but the food wasn't that great and I saw the that the health department had only given it a B- and I am a local who knows of a lot better places to eat.
