Swami's has a great, varied menu to choose from. They have a wonderful coffee bar you can serve yourself from, with lots of creamers/flavors to choose. Food is excellent. They have a green basil salad dressing that is amazing. Salads have lots of various ingredients...More

Probably the best breakfast choice in Poway. Large menu with good selection of both traditional and more contemporary dishes. Self-service coffee with a selection of blends. Friendly, efficient servers complete with iPads with all the latest features. Big improvement from former operation at this location.
