Eggs Benedict

What a treat to have a really well prepared eggs benedict❤️ The hollandaise sauce is rich, creamy and smooth! I love to have it with ham and a side of artichoke hearts ... perfection!

Denver Omelet

The staff at Swamis are some of the nicest staff I've ever experienced. Such a a warm and friendly way to start your day! Every time I come in, I try a new omelet and they've all been delicious. This is by far one of favorite local Spots !

Cheesy Burger

Welcome to our Neighborhood Swamis and nice to meet you Devin. Now I have been here more than 4 times. Your staff was great and felt so comfortable and Food was nothing short of expectation. The atmosphere was so open, and it was nice on a sunny Sunday. The place was kept so nice and clean. We went there and entered our name and reserved table for 4, the wait was 15 min. While we waited, they had coffee and ice cold infused water for ppl waiting outside, it's a nice courtesy on a hot day, your got a brownie point there. We were welcomed with a wide smile and friendliness was evident. We ordered the following, Fish Burrito and I asked them to have the cilantro sauce on the side. The burrito was wrapped with in a wrap not a tortilla, so be prepared for that. It had lot of fish with red cabbage and black bean. The cilantro sauce was great too. Also, we got Potato Scramble burrito, it came with Eggs, Potato, Onion, mixed cheddar cheese with sour cream. It came with fruits on side. Added Jalapeno in my scramble. It had potato wedges in the burrito, and it was tasty. And Jalapeno made it taste much better. The size was perfect for a meal. Not heavy nor too cheesy. Also I had Cheesy Burger. This burger is very moist and pretty good. If you crave a regular burger please give a try. For my 8-year-old from Kids menus, ordered Garden Burger with real beef added instead of veggie patty. My 8-year-old wants to write the review on his own words... here we go. "I ordered a Garden Burger from kid's menu and chips, salsa and pickle. In the Burger the patty was very juicy, and all the three cheeses melted together it had very good taste. I dipped my Burger into Cilantro sauce. The chips weren't to salty and the salsa was perfect. Nothing was bad and nothing was good it was awesome!!! Altogether our family had a great time and we will be going there soon, mostly for a Sunday brunch

Upon the discovery of a new diet , I was sent here to dine, and well it filled me up , service was prompt and upon the pandemic , they have been very amazing observing Quarantine health codes and yet are able to make you feel like nothings changed, you can feel the staff are working hard to make sure you have a good time, I recommend the location Plenty of parking and fast service - The decore is spanish rustic with a tint of California - so the swami theme is very prominent - But there you have it , an Oasis of normalcy in a sea of madness -

Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes

The pineapple upside down pancake was magical. One order came with two huge pancakes. Drizzled in maple syrup made it a delicious bit. A perfect fix for your sweet tooth.

Swami's Salad

I love the variety of vegetables in this healthy salad, especially the avocado. The house basil dressing is fresh and delicious. The bread is an added bonus. You can add chicken for only $3.00 more. I added brown rice and chicken and received a whole, well-marinated grilled chicken breast. Highly recommended for those in search of a healthy dining out option.

Swami's Waffle Benedict

Too much asparagus! The waffles tasted like asparagus, it was just a vegetable mess! Ate the eggs and bacon and left the rest... it's such a weird combination. Like eating breakfast Waffle with dinner vegetables...

Ham and Ham Omelet

A long time favorite, this edition did not disappoint. With the home fried potatoes, the dish filled my plate and me, so I had a second meal from my take-home box.

Swami's Combo

Egg-cellent breakfast every time. They make my eggs just the way I like them. I add one of their flavored pancakes (chocolate chip, orange-rasberry or blueberry) and they are always delicious. Love the refillable coffee in many flavors as well. Service is friendly too.

Banana Pancakes

This dish was beyond amazing! The best pancakes ever. The crunch from the pecans, the fresh taste of the bananas, and the soft, fluffy pancakes! And to tie things up with the blackberry sauce on the plate. My taste buds were completely drowned in a daze and I completely fell in love with Swami's right then and there. Every time my Fiancé and I are in the area we always eat at Swami's.

Lobster Benedict (Or Omelette)

Very delicious and great serving. The price was decent for a lobster Benedict compared to other places. The muffin was perfectly toasted and the egg perfectly poached. One of the bests I've had. Also, we loved the watermelon mimosas! Will definitely return to Swamis! The atmosphere was amazing and what a beautiful restaurant. Lastly, big props to the Swamis servers here in Escondido for their attentive and courteous service! Our server made sure to check in on us and ensured that our experience was going great.

Hands down the best Açaí bowl ever! Every time I go to Swamies, either the Encinitas or the La Mesa Location I always get this. Sometimes I get something else to eat with my açaí bowl. ( I end up taking the açaí bowl home with my leftovers; because, after all, who could eat that much! ) I always get the decaf vanilla nut coffee too. This is the best coffee I've ever tasted. Swamies is our go-to restaurant for a great day on the patio. I appreciate that you allow me to bring my Great Danes to brunch. They love all of the attention from the fabulous employees at Swamies! I appreciate that the chef lets me pick up an açaí bowl on the go at the back door for a drive up pick up. You are my favorite restaurant!!!

Eggs Benedict

The eggs Benedict is my favorite thing in ever! The Hollandaise is so good, it's the perfect mixture of creamy but has a little tartness to it. Another thing that always brings me back is the breakfast potatoes. I love the slather them in ketchup and they're so bomb!
