Truly. First time visitor. Mark working the front counter, was awesome. Very very nice. Explained everything. Yes, it's a simple buffet, but it's still cool in this day in age to be nice and helpful. The buttermilk cornbread was to die for. The selection of everything is abundant. Eating Disney food all week, this was a welcomed change!!!!

Sweet Tomatoes is always a great inexpensive choice when either in Disney or visiting the Orlando area. There are many fresh choices and hot soups to choose from. Restaurant is always clean and fresh looking.

We make a point to eat here EVERY time we're in Orlando. LOVE this place and wish there was one in the PHL area! When you first walk in, don't panic; it's not all salads. It's buffet style but my kids probably should have been parked in front of the soft-serve machine. The homemade soups are amazing as is everything... More

Been coming to Orland for many years and only last year discovered Sweet Tomatoes. I love buffet-style as you can chose just want you want and go back for more of your favourites. It doesn't bother me that they dont offer lots of meat dishes because they do offer an amazing salad bar. Food is very fresh and super tasty.... More

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

Nice change, we were in the mood for fresh and healthy and were not disappointed. Salad bar is in the middle with two lines on each side. 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,...

I love Sweet Tomatoes. I go to one in IL all the time. This one was just as great as mine back home. The food was fresh and good! They first offer a large salad bar to create your own salad along with some pre made salads. You then have a hot food area with things like pasta, pizza, and... More
