Nice outside patio for morning meal. We had huevos rancheros and eggs Benedict. Both were outstanding. The service is friendly and most of the locals were greeted with hugs. Next time I'm through Carlsbad I'll stop in again.

We brought the family in for lunch on two consecutive days. The burgers were excellent as were the fries. Portions were generous and the people very friendly

The place I think of first when heading out with my friends and family. Great staff, delicious acai and pretty much anything else. Never dissatisfied. Dog friendly patio and gluten-free options. All the Swami's have these things to offer.

Spent a few days in Carlsbad and got hooked on the Pitaya Bowls at Swami's. What a great way to start your day!
