Mediocre cafe, in the middle of Temecula. Standard cowboy menu with no real thought. Eggs, bacon, pancakes, etc. Bunch of folks standing around outside talking motorcycles and old cars. Not particularly good for those that want to dine.

None of that is at the Swing Inn. Very fair prices and a great lunch for us. Are waitress was as friendly could be. Don't know her... More

I've been coming here with firend's and family since 1991 and have yet had a bad experience. It's nice when you come in and to be greeted by your 1st name and not looked at as "how much is he going to tip). The atmosphere is friendly and pleasant. Service is great and fast. There coffee is always fresh and... More

This was recommended to me. I wasn't super impressed with the food. It was very crowded. Very casual and a home style breakfast

This is a great place to eat, the food is always good and they do not skimp on their portions. The cost of their meals are in the moderate to low range. There is parking in back of the restaurant off street. This is a very busy place, many locals and tourists, you may have to wait, wont be long.... More

Okay... it's been here as long as dirt. Their regulars have been coming here for 50 years. It's as old school as it gets to be sure. You can also be sure of getting great food served by happy people all at a reasonable price. They serve breakfast all day and their fries are legend. When in Temecula swing on... More

Stopped at the town of Temecula and ate at this restaurant in old town. The Swing Inn Cafe is very popular and the food is good. Drinks such as sodas seemed high which moved the total for lunch a little higher then expected.
