A favorite place for breakfast in San Diego is Swami's Cafe in North Park (2920 University Avenue)—especially on weekends when the locals line up to place their orders at the counter. The line moves fast and the staff is friendly. There are numerous choices for both breakfast (served all day) and lunch. After you place your order, you find your own table either inside or outside.
The food comes reasonably fast. However, we were in no hurry because we like to take our time at the self-service coffee bar trying out new flavors of Gavina gourmet coffee. Our favorites are Guatemala Organic or Hawaiian Hazelnut. With more than 12 flavors to choose from (always fresh on weekends when they are busy), it is a coffee lovers delight. They also offer a self-service tea counter.
Ron always orders the Lobster Omelet that comes with a generous portion of lobster and a tasty sauce. I rotate between the Lobster Benedict or the Acacia Bowl (rated as the #1 thing to eat in San Diego). One of these times, I plan to order the scrumptious looking Buttermilk or Organic Multigrain Pancakes—offered in a wide variety of flavors. The restaurant is known for fresh and healthy foods—they also cater to the vegetarian diet. The choices are many and the servings are plentiful.
Swami's Cafe is privately owned with 11 locations throughout San Diego—all having different hours and variations. I have found each one to be unique to its location, however, my favorite is North Park where the millennials gather on weekends.

of life on Earth as the evolution of a vegetarian diet.”
