Plenty of choices, reasonable prices

This all-you-can-eat soup and salad bar has a wide variety of items, Always fresh produce and at least six soups plus pasta, breads and desserts. Enough to fill the hungriest tummies without breaking the bank. Place is always clean - a must when food sits out.

Eating here is similar to eating at a cafeteria, but food is decent for the price and there are so many options! Went on a Thursday at 2 p.m. and they were very busy but there is plenty of seating and much room for patrons to move about. Recommend!

A huge amount of options, and all you can eat. It was clearly a local favorite as there were a lot of people there. The food was okay, what you would expect from a buffet type place. Some of the salads were delicious, while others were average. Staff were polite and courteous. Overall an okay experience

The food is simple and fresh. Go for the salads and soups. I love eating here several times a year. The price is a little high but coupons are available most of the time on the Internat.

We gave this place a try based on all the great reviews but were very disappointed with the bland fairly average but expensive food. The price of the buffet is pretty high even for kids and although there is some variety, we didn't find it to our liking. It is also very crowded and there is hardly any place to... More

We ate here twice during our visit to the Pleasanton, CA area. Cafeteria style self serve. Line moves fast and the selection is excellent. Every vegetable you can imagine to make salads etc. A variety of soups, all very tasty. There are hot dishes as well. Pastas, chili, pizza and even an ice cream bar. Some dessert cakes and brownies.... More

Sweet Tomatoes is one of my favorite restaurants in Pleasanton. You can count on variety, consistency in quality and lots of options. If you don't want any of the pre-mixed salads you can combine fresh raw ingredients and make your own. There are always at least 6 hot freshly made soups, a pasta dish, baked potatoes with all the trimmings... More

My last visit was very enjoyable. The restaurant was very clean. The salad fixings were fresh and tasty. The soup/chili selections were nice, especially the vegetarian chili; I am a meat eater, but that chili was really good. Their hot cheesy bread and pizza bread are a nice addition to a casual meal. The desert selections are simple but very... More
