Reasonable place to fix your own

It will be a bit crowded at meal times, and sometimes a bit slow at clearing tables, but food was good and appears clean to the customer.

I was pleasantly surprised when my grandson mentioned to go here for lunch. The salad bar was filled with fresh ingredients and there were lots of soup, pasta and bread choices. Best of all they have a senior discount(60) 2-4 and it's $8 for all you can eat. The plan was clean and the booths comfy. Not a special occasion... More

If this place was closer to my home, I'd probably eat here 3-4 times a WEEK! Being a self-admitted veggie junkie, I can't get enough salad. Here is such a HUGE selection of prepared salads and do-it-yourself ingredients that it's difficult to get it all on one plate. SO-O-O-O yummy! The soups I've tried there were good. The pasta bar...

we wanted a light dinner and sweet tomatoes always good consistent variety and quality greens etc. the pasta selections are totally underwhelming but since it's not their specialty, I wouldn't go for that anyway. Nice people, reliable food and a clean restaurant make for a fine experience.

11/30/2014 Sweet Tomatoes is a favorite of ours and we have been dining here at least 2-3 times a month for years I am a member of the veggie club so I get the emails that some locations offer breakfast. We have never tried their breakfast and since we are in Northern California and saw this location we thought we... More

This is a place with a wonderful fresh salad bar, and soups, breads, and desserts. It is a good place for an inexpensive quick bite in the center of Pleasant Hill downtown. They offer a senior discount (10%), so it is popular with old folks, and kids love the unlimited soft ice cream in different flavors with lots of toppings,... More

Remembering when you were in the school cafeteria with many more choices. Good selection and nice hot food items.

Excellent salad bar goes way beyond salad. Best selection of house made soups (at least 5 each). Menu changes with seasons. Great breads always. Pasta, rice, fruit etc and specials. Desserts of varied types. All Serve yourself, All you can eat. You eat your way out the door. Never felt sorry after eating here. Like the Sweet Tomato's in Pleasanton... More
