Good, fast, cheap

This is a great place to go for a quick cafeteria style salad. The salad bar is stocked with everything under the sun (except banana peppers). I found this was excellent stop for lunch during a work day.

It's a fast-food-like all-you-can-eat restaurant, there's huge salad bar, soups choice and other things you can take, price include. Quick, with average value lunch... I reconend this place..!

There are three Sweet Tomatoes (aka Souplantation) restaurants in the greater Fort Lauderdale area. This one is north -- almost up to Pompano -- but worth the drive. BTW, there's little point in getting on that food-fight, war-zone I-95; going up Andrews Ave. is very efficient. Parking is a breeze once you navigate your way into the lot. One thing... More

It's a salad bar. The vegetables are fresh. The dressings are mostly mayonnaise-based unless you want some gooey "diet" Italian. The soups are plentiful and decent, but nothing to write home about. The pasta is OK. The people who give a restaurant such as this 5 stars would have to give Burger King 4 stars. What does that tell you?... More

whenever in Florida I love eating at sweet tomatoes. I particularly like the soups and the breads. I took a friend with me and he thought that there should be better labeling on the salad bar. It is always a treat I wish that we had these up north.

There are more than one Sweet Tomatoes in the Fort Lauderdale area. We ate the one located in a mall off Stirling and Oakwood Blvd. Since we do not have a Sweet Tomatoes anywhere near us, it is a treat to come here. I love the salad bar – you name the salad topping and it is probably there. They... More

Easy parking, clean facility. Friendly staff. The salad bar is very good. I had a large salad, ice tea, soup, bread, and yogurt.

Despite my uncle's negative view, the rest of us liked Sweet Tomatoes (and I don't even like tomatoes). It is a healthier buffet of salads and soups, along with some pasta, breads, and pasteries. There are many options and it was all fresh and tasty. The price was reasonable, especially since my aunt had a coupon for all of us.... More

This is apparently a salad buffet. They also have like 8 different soups they make in the kitchen, big bowls of hot pasta, and baked potatoes, pizzas, desserts..... for a salad buffet it filled me up and I wasn't sure what to expect! When it's your first time there, they give you a small bag of homemade cookies and a... More

A unique al you can eat salad, soup and baked goods buffet, with many healthy options. The multitude of items on the salad bar provides something for anyone’s taste. The selection of soups enhances the salad buffet and the selection of breads makes a good completion to your meal. There is a number of bakery items, puddings and soft serve... More
