Hope you like buffets

I went with a friend and didn't realize this was a buffet. The food was okay with lots of choices. You certainly get your money's worth. I thought the soups were very good. The desserts were not so good. I don't like salad buffets so I probably won't go again but the selection was fine. I ate... read more

Love this chain! Cafeteria style, majoring in salads. The initial bar has some ready made salads as well as 4 types of lettuce to use as a base for a 'make your own' creation. They even have fresh raw beets and squash julienned to put on your salad. Good selection of dressings, fat free and regular. They also have a... More

Only visiting Florida for a week from the UK this self-service vegetarian restaurant was a revelation. In fact it is so good we visited it twice! We were overwhelmed by the range of fresh salads and choice of accompaniments, including dressings, croutons, nuts and seeds, etc. Customers can then help themselves to a never ending supply of non-alcoholic drinks. As... More

One of the first things you'll notice about our Sweet Tomatoes in Ft. Myers, FL, is the cleanliness. The restaurant is spotless, and kept that way as diners help themselves to the various selections. Every single item on the salad bar is fresh, the lettuce is crisp and the mixed salads are beautiful. The soups are so delicious that they... More

All you can eat salad bar, soup, pasta, pizza, and soft ice cream. Everything was fresh, delicious and service fast and friendly. Cafeteria line, serve-yourself style. Good value. Casual.

I don't go here anymore. The vegetable salad bar is vast. However, much of them are tasteless. I must admit, I do love the pasta bar. The pizza is great and the amount of food is a bit much -- but you can be discerning and not stuff yourself!! (So American! Large portions meet the approval of most.) If you... More

Sweet Tomatoes...Soup Plantation is one of the cleanest and the salads are the freshest I've ever had! A wide assortment of delicious salads already made or you can create your own from their wide variety of ingredients. The wide variety of homemade soups are equally as tasty. Homemade corn bread, multigrain breads, pastas, etc. etc. Their selection changes regularly but... More
