This place boasts a 50 foot salad buffet and everything is fresh and much made on site. If you are looking for a big meat buffet this is not for you but the range of salads, breads, soup and homemade pizza more than make up for this. I prefer this to many of the main buffet restaurants around because it... More

We decided to go here as we wanted something other then the burgers on offer on international drive and we were very pleased with the food here! There is lots to choose from including different soups and also pizza and a dessert buffet. Is very good value for money and would defiantly recommend for families and vegetarians!

55-feet of salad and veggie options mixed with freshly baked breads, cookies, soups, pizzas, pastas and seasonal specials. This is the best value $9 lunch in town and the salad bar is stocked with the more expensive salad items that other chains neglect. You can build something different every time and keep revisiting the buffet until you're full. You can't... More

If you are up to your ears in burgers and theme park food, Sweet Tomatoes is a great little alternative. A fully stacked salad bar makes way to up to 8 soup options, baked potatoes, bread and butter as well as macaroni and cheese for the kids. If you still have room left, there is ice cream and toppings as... More

This is a wonderful buffet of salad and soup. The food tasted very fresh and the variety was good. It is a nice change from all the rich foods around Orlando.

Definitely a place I would visit again, healthy eating in a world... More

Sweet Tomatoes is a buffet with a large selection of salad items as well as soups, cooked pasta, breads and deserts. While it's mostly vegetarian there are some meat choices for the salads and soups. What makes the place is it's cheap and cheerful and you can eat as much as you like for a reasonable sum of money. Our... More

The salad bar was extensive, with just about everything you could want. Soups were also very god, as was the pasta and bread, I... More
