First Review by gr8vegan

Local diner - Edit

This place has existed at this location for many years now and appears to be doing all right. I've eaten here several times over the years - was just here this week. Here's my Swinger's Diner review update.

It's on the corner of a busy intersection. The decor is retro-hip. Not all veg but the large menu labels what is or can be vegan, and the choices are plenty. It's a place where vegans can go with non-veg friends, and everyone can order what they want.

This week friends and I share a vegan burrito (filling of quiona & spinach), vegan pancakes (thick and filling), vegan nachos (flavorful but salted), and the veggie burger with house-made quinoa based patty (bread too dense, patty okay, a bit dry overall).

I prefer to eat at fully veg places, but Swinger's is a fair choice when dining out with non-veg friends, or if it's very late at night and you're hungry.

a good option - Edit

Nothing to write home about but they do have a bunch of vegan options and you can go there with your non vegan friends.

Swingers Sure is Swingin', Man! - Edit

Don't make fun of my review title until you actually try this place.I LOVE Swingers! It is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at. They serve meat but they have a lot of vegan/vegetarian options. On their menu everything vegetarian has a picture of a hand doing a peace sign next to it while everything vegan has a picture of a hand doing a thumbs up. Being vegan,at most restaurants there are not a lot of choices and I can usually narrow down the menu to like three things. However, an Swinger's there were so many choices and they all sounded super good. They serve breakfast all day so the last time I went there I had the vegan multigrain banana pancakes for dinner. They were super good! My dad who is not vegan or vegetarian tried a piece and said that it was probably the best pancake he has ever eaten; those pancakes were probably one of the best things I have ever eaten also.Breakfast entrees even include the option of scrambled tofu instead of eggs and vegetarian bacon. At Swinger's they even had vegan cookies and cheesecake for dessert. Beverages even included soymilk, almondmilk, chocolate soymilk, and vegan smoothies. They serve all kinds of good stuff like tofu, quinoa,sweet potato fries,falafel,vegetables,and even have vegan nachos. The inside of the restaurant is super groovy looking and looks like a vintage diner. The menu is covered with pictures of old celebrities; I enjoyed looking at it and pointing out the Beatles, The Ramones, Iggy Pop, David Bowie, Raquel Welch, Goldie Hawn, and a whole bunch of other people I love. Anyway this review is super long and I think you get the point; just go there man.

Pros: really good food, super groovy restaurant, lost of good veg options

Cons: too far away from my house

Good breakfast - Edit

I ate here for breakfast last week. It's a good place to take omnivores so that everyone can be happy with their meal. There were several vegan options on the menu and I opted for the Soyrizo Scramble and added avocado to it. The meal came with black beans, salsa, and a tortilla, I felt that the combination of everything tasted really good. As stated in a prior review, Swingers is a fun 50's style diner and it seems to be very popular. I'd definitely go again.

great late night spot - Edit

I've relied on swinger for over a decade to feed me at 2am when im out with a pack of wild omnivores. The most amazing thing about swingers is that they will make me a custom healthy quinoa veggie wrap without oils. They have plenty of unhealthy vegan food, as well. Its a fun quirky 50s diner kind of place. This location allows smoking outside so beware.

Pros: open late, will customize

Cons: occasionaly animal products get mixed in by m
