Swami's Pitaya Bowl

Delicious! Always arranged beautifully and tastes every bit, if not more, delicious as it looks! Fruit is always fresh and there's a perfect balance of granola and fruit toppings. It's a perfectly refreshing, healthy treat!

Classic Chicken Caesar Salad

Hands down, the best Chicken and Shrimp Caesar Salad I have ever had. The chicken and shrimp is perfectly seasoned and cooked. They give you generous portions, very filling. Also comes with a side of toast which by the way I have never had with any of my salads until I started coming to Swami's. I promise you, you won't be disappointed! Highly recommend.

Gone Grapefruit

This smoothie is tart, as expected, but not excessively. Added bee pollen and it was excellent.

Hormone Free Blue Burger

This review had me pick one dish but I've tried several items off the menu and they have all been amazing! We drive down from Temecula and it is worth the drive! The staff is always friendly, the atmosphere is amazing and of course I can't leave out the coffee bar! Probably my favorite thing about the cafe lol.

Ahi Salad

Freshest ahi, seared with sesame seed atop fresh greens and fresh fruit! Best salad or poke in all of Southern California! I compare ahi salads in many restaurant and Swamis is by far the BEST! The new location is beautiful! The staff I very attentive! A good team means great management! The chef plates up good looking dishes! Either a party of two or a big get together! All is Great!

Acai Smoothie

You get what you pay for that's for sure! I'm a huugge açaí fanatic and usually they're about the size of a small bowl for 8-10$, but this acai bowl is enough for two people it's so big and soooo good🤤 also the peanut butter & banana shake is my favorite! Just writing this is making me crave one 😌

Acai Smoothie

The Acai Bowl is so refreshing, with fresh topings, dry coconut, and a touch of sweetness, how could ask for more.

Steak Benedict

I've tried many dishes at swami's and drinks as well and it has never failed to impress. My fiance and I moved across the country a few months ago and one of the most important things to us was finding a good breakfast place to go to together (I should mention we do not often agree on what restaurants are good) but swami's was a no brainer to us! We've brought all of our visitors there and gone in can't even count how many times since we moved. We just can't get enough! Love it!

Authentic Mexican Burrito

You can never go wrong with an Authentic Mexican Burrito! The spice, the flavor, not to mentions the delicious and authentic ingredients. YUM! 5 STARS!

Gluten Free Pancakes

We ordered several breakfast meals to go and all 4 of us were happy with our dishes. Our Daughtee has food alergies and loves the gluten free pancakes. I ordered the lobster benedict and it is now my favorite. Service was friendly and fast. Will definitely be back.

The Swami's Club

My favorite salad of any restaurant is Swami's Tropical Salad. Tonight for dinner we got take out at Encinitas inland. Sadly, the salad was very small, and missing the usual orange slices, blueberries, and the cucumbers were rotten. They always seem to be out of the green dressing (my favorite). What's up?

Eggs Benedict

Love this dish! Tangy and delightful! Classic hollandaise and they do it right. I'm going to have it again today and I can't wait! Yep. Just had it. It was soooo good. Me writing how good it was doesn't do it justice. Their hollandaise is on point. I am stuffed. Get it with the home fried potatoes.

Chicken Quesadilla

The chicken quesadilla was amazing! It was not greasy at all and had the perfect kick of spice. I will totally get this next time and would recommend it to everyone. Plus, it's huge and easy to share! Definitely a tummy pleaser!!!

ABC Omelet

Having lived in San Diego for the past year, I can honestly say that Swami's is my favorite restaurant. I wish it was open for dinner! It has a perfect variety of food options for breakfast, lunch, healthy eaters, and coffee lovers with their self-serve coffee bar. We have to try and resist going there every day! We have yet to be disappointed with a meal there. My favorite is the ABC Omelet

I love the BLTA with mock bacon, on rye. Super satisfying and delicious. I go between fries or salad for my side, both are great, and large, options!

Acai Smoothie

The Acai Smoothie Bowl has the best acai I have ever tasted from an acai bowl! You can really taste the freshness from the strawberries and bananas loaded on top. I'll definitely be coming back to try the Pitaya Bowl too.

Acai Smoothie

Swami's Cafe is absolutely my favorite place to eat in all of San Diego! I live on the East Coast and whenever I come to visit my daughter and family, we always make Swami's a "must visit"! The first item we ever tried was the amazing Acai Bowl.... I've never put anything as delicious as this in my mouth. It's so flavorful and healthy... you just feel better as you're eating it! I have to have that; but last visit we also filled the table with other items... just to try them (specialty eggs, seasonal pancakes, specialty coffees, etc)... one dish was better than the next. And the service is super friendly and attentive. My daughter's friend arranged for a special surprise weekend and invited me to fly in to surprise her when she walks into Swami's as the starting point to a whole weekend of fun! More memories at Swami's coming up! How cool is that!?!? Thanks for so many great memories Swami's! We've never been disappointed ever with anything we've ordered! I recommend your restaurant to anyone headed to CA as a "must stop" on their trip! I hope locals realize the gem they have in Swami's. Until my next visit.... thanks for the memories! (Please don't use my name or email- don't want to ruin her surprise!)

These Chilaquiles are as amazing as the ones I make at home! The eggs are cooked perfectly how you want them (I prefer sunny side down). The portion is a generous amount. This is easily my favorite breakfast or lunch item. But then again, everything I order here is beautifully created and tastes amazing.

I came in for the first time on a Tuesday morning two weeks ago. Wow the service was amazing! I had the best bloody mary I may have ever had! And then the lobster benedict! I have never had a more delicious seafood benedict in my life with all my world travels! The hollandaise was on point and the amount of food was extremely generous! There was pure, massive amounts of lobster in this benedict and I highly recommend to anyone who loves brunching to visit! There are so many selections I could eat for days and not eat the same food twice if I wanted and probably love or like most!

Artichoke Chicken Sausage Omelette

Delicious beyond words! The chicken sausage is the BEST in town and Swami's also has the BEST smoothies and kindest staff. Truly a HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

California Chicken Wrap

I've eaten here so many times with so many dishes but the California Chicken Wrap is by far my favorite for lunch. It's so flavorful and filling. I usually can only finish half which is perfect to have a delicious meal twice.

Black Egg Burrito

I love this burrito so much! I was super bummed when I started having to eat gluten free, and could no longer have the tortilla. HOWEVER, it's almost better without the tortilla. The black beans are seasoned so well, eggs are fluffy, and you get about half an avocado. Always fruit as the side, because it's always fresh!

Eggs Benedict

The eggs benedict that swamis offer are so delishous. the eggs aren't overcooked, the sauce is seasoned perfectly and paired with a side of fruits there is nothing I wouldn't want to change.

The Swami's Club

I've ordered the vegetarian and vegan versions of the Swami's Club at least a dozen times. Their mock meats and cheeses are the best replicas I've ever had. All of the ingredients are fresh and flavorful. The staff at this location are also incredible. They are all friendly and extremely competent. I can't say enough good things about Swami's, I highly recommend it to everyone I know.
