Very nice selection...lots of salads and components for you to choose from. Plenty of choices in soup, several kinds of pasta, baked potato bar with both white and sweet and nice selection of desserts -- be sure to try the lava cake!

This was my first time at Sweet Tomatoes and I will be back. The salad bar is immense, fresh and colorful. $11.95 for an adult all you can eat lunch in the heart of Orlando is untouchable. They had 5 soups available and all are made fresh daily. It will satisfy everyone's hunger needs from little ones to picky eaters.... More

Although they said ingredients are the same on both sides, there is a slight difference - nice surprise. Fresh and wholesome, would dine there again. Went back for seconds on the salad section,...

During our vacation at Orlando we started getting sick and tired of greasy, deep fried fast food the whole time. We saw this restaurant while we drove by and thought to give it a try. It turned out great!! This buffet style restaurant has excellent choices of salads, soups, carbs and deserts!! The vegetables are so fresh!! We went there... More
