Very simple decor on a street that's not really near anything. Basic food done pretty well. Breakfast is better than lunch or dinner. Reasonable prices.

I would give 3 1/2 stars if I could. My Sunday hiking group has dined at the Swanton on several occasions, and opinions vary within our group, but my own experience has been pretty diner average. Sundays (after church?) are very crowded so unless you...More
