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

This restaurant is called Sweet Tomatoes in NorCal and Souplantation in SoCal. This is a buffet-style restaurant where one can choose from a large variety of fresh salad ingredients to build a hefty salad. Some ingredients change with the season, although we wish kale, quinoa and couscous were part of the regular offerings. The restaurant also offers a buffet of... More

I like picking my salad ingredients from a long line of choices... And I like being able to add muffins, butter, soft serve ice cream, and all kinds of soups to the mix... Choices are a nice way to go, but sometimes having all those choices means that they become warm, or stale, or slightly off from the mix of... More

We needed a quick salad meal so stopped here. While this place is not a fancy or gourmet restaurant, they do a great job of keeping a self-serve salad bar clean and veggies fresh. If very basic salads, soups, and baked goods at a reasonable price is what you are looking for, this is the place. While they do a... More

We've eaten at Sweet Tomatoes literally dozens of times both as a couple and with family for birthdays. The one in Pleasant Hill, CA is absolutely consistent in their presentation of fresh salads and soups as well a variety of breads and rolls. It is certainly pocketbook friendly and we see no reason not to continue our patronage.

the variety of food will cover most anyone's tastes and salad bar, soup pasta, breads, desserts is good quality for cost. Place as enough space to be able to accomodate larger groups and those with little kids. Situated near Michaels, good variety of shops and a cinena. Free parking. Right noff freeway so convenient.
