Great healthy fast food

Delicious salad bar. So fresh and several options of pre-tossed options (Cesar, lemon Parm, sweet pecan Cranberry) plus pasta bar and baked potatoes. Dessert was fair, but that just made it easier to behave. I wish they had this chain near home.

When we are in Fort Myers we always go here once or twice. The salad bar is wonderful, with anything you would ever want, including some ready made salads at the beginning. Their soups are delicious.... Always many choices. I love the clam chowder. Their breads and muffins are super. They always have baked potato with many toppings, if you... More

Healthy, light, but delicious salad, soup, and bread. I always go there when I'm not feeling like eating meat, fried stuff, or order things from menu. The cold pasta salad is really good. Soup is always good, I love their clam chowder, and freshly baked muffins and breads are so delicious!!

This is a buffet-style eatery that has no pretensions. We had very good salads, and a Mac-&-cheese dish. Didn't try the soups or other main dishes, but did have their cornbread and some desert ice cream (soft-served, with toppings offered), and the chocolate chip bars (heavenly!). Staff were courteous and helpful, and on a very busy night continued to keep... More

Casual self service setting. Excellent value for lunch and inexpensive dinner. All you can eat salad bar, pasta, soups deserts and soft serve ice cream. How can you go wrong with that. Easy on the wallet as well. Always worth the visit.

I always look forward to Sweet Tomatoes salad and soup buffet when I visit Florida. If we had one in our hometown, I would probably eat there every week. Great selections of salads and toppings. Fresh and nicely presented. Love the clam chowder. Prices are reasonable - sign up for their email specials and coupons.

The salad bar was in bad shape. Looked stall and wilted. Their soups were bland and tasteless. The mac and cheese was like out of box. A cheap box. The only thing that was decent was the baked goods.

Every trip we make to Florida, we make a stop at Sweet Tomatoes. My entire family loves this place. The buffet style salad bar is top notch. The soup is very good, usually with several different soup choices. The hot food is good too. Top it off with desert and you're sure to walk out satisfied! I also like that... More
