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

We came here to celebrate my niece going off to graduate school. As the family had an early morning flight, we arrived at 5pm. Food was good as always but the bus people were very slow to pick up our empty plates so they were placed on the table behind us. This way we were able to continue eating until... More

Went here for lunch on a business trip. Got there at 1:00PM and they were still busy (a good sign). We had the tri-tip sandwich with blue cheese and sweet potato fries. Both were excellent. Service was fast and friendly. I recommend giving them a try.

This place has all important things done right: the food is fresh, plenty of choices, clean, good service and cozy feel. The price is great. As a result, no wonder they are often really busy. Here is one thing which is slightly annoying. The salad bar is always stocked, but they keep rotating soups/meals and since they have very little... More

I've been frequenting this establishment for years- first as a single person who came here during business lunches, then raising two kids and bringing them here for health choice meals with no limits and plenty of time to relax and enjoy the company of other families with small children-it became favorite spot for dinner because the price was cheap, it's...
