Sweet Tomatoes is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere. It's part of a small chain of specialty, one price, unlimited buffet restaurants that feature "do it yourself" salads, great homemade soups, fresh breads, pasta and desserts. All the food is unbelievably fresh and the prepared foods are "homemade". There are always a few specials that are featured for about 2... More

It was my favorite for a very reasonable price with lots of choices. (Orlando Colonial location). I sat by the wood panel and lost my appetite after seeing the roach run up the wall where I was enjoying soup and salad. So sorry I had to type this review but it really has been bothering me. I recently ate another... More

The salad buffet choice is extraordinary, the soups are all freshly made daily & I love how they advise which items are vegetarian etc. Also their drinks choices are fantastic too; raspberry lemonade and pomegranate green tea were delicious. The staff who clear the tables are... More

We always look forward to eating at one of these in Florida. Wish they had them in Midwest. They have salads, soups, pastas, desserts, and breads. Great choice for picky eaters.

We came across this buffet restaurant because of tripadvisor and were not disappointed. The buffet is around $10 each and an unlimited soft drink was around $3. The food mainly consists of salad, soup and pasta but all was fresh and very tasty. There is a good choice available and even deserts with an ice cream machine! The drinks were... More

Salad bar is great!!!! It would have been better if not so busy but good food brings crowds. We have been here before and soups were better last time. But over all is a great lunch spot...

We consider this a find for fresh food, salad that you make yourself and a fair selection of hot foods. Works great as lunch place for a light lunch
