Its pretty standard salad and soup. Great for kids, in fact there were a ton of kids in there the other night. They got me some Kale with no dressing out of the back, it was helpful...I made my salad with that. Lots of choices...

Not very impressed with the standard fair in the salad bar. Not the place to go if you're into healthy and creative food. Place was filled with single seniors having dinner at 4 pm!

There are plenty of options on the salad bar, and the soups are always hot and tasty. This place always seems busy, so the salad bar items turn over quickly and remain fresh. The staff does a great job of refilling everything. It's not a fancy place, but it's a great option to pop inside for a quick lunch.

Soup and salad. to say the salad bar is complete is an understatement. soups good and hot if most are a little bland. Nice assortment of breads. The night we went was busy and seriously LOUD. Great to take the kids but not very relaxing.

Good variety of salad choices, quality tasting salads including soups and pastas are part of the buffet menu. The price per person is reasonable when you search the internet for a current Sweet Tomatoes coupon.

Choices of tastes are broad enough to satisfy most palates. This is not fine dining, but a buffet of selections centered around healthy veges, fruits and soups. Lots of families patronize this store. Decent senior value offered, but is limited to certain times of the day.

Very nice hostess/cashier with a robust salad buffet. In addition pizza, soups and soft serve ice cream were offered. All you can eat salad and pasta buffet for a reasonable price. Very similar to other similar establishments. Clean facility and outdoor seating.
