A chain, but a good chain

Every time I pass through Orlando, I always have to stop at a Sweet Tomatoes and get my "salad" on. This is a salad bar like no other. The breads, soups, and pasta dishes are always very fresh and good. I don't usually review chains, but this one needs to be in every major city!

Sweet Tomatoes is the place to go if you're veggie. Lots of salad, fresh made bread, corn bread soups and pasta. It's unlimited buffet so you can eat as much or as little as you want. Puddings are lovely - we had chocolate larva cake, peach cobbler and icecream.

Popped in here at lunchtime on Saturday after a hot and sticky August morning visiting the parks. Reasonable charge of 9.99 per adult and 5.99 child under 12 meal. You could choose a salad from the amazing array on the salad bar with a high selection of dressings and coleslaws. Then try pizza, chilli, baked potaoes, pasta or a selection... More

Great selection of fresh salad items, supplemented by home made muffins, breads, soups and pasta choices. My favourite was this month's special, pepperoni on foccaccia bread. Also very good selection of drinks for a buffet - regular sodas as you'd expect, but also juices, milk, flavoured coffee, iced tea... something for everyone. Very much enjoyed by the whole family, highly... More

This establishment was a pleasant surprise I did not expect this buffet style resturant to be to good. I came with a large party and when we showed up we payed a small fee for each person to eat and after that there was a salad bar. When you are done there there is a large room with lots of... More

Whenever we travel to Florida, we always stop for lunch our first day at Sweet Tomatoes. It has become our ritual to go here. The salad bar is wonderful, with about 50 selections. There are also a variety of soups, muffins and breads. They have vegetarian and vegan dishes as well.

Dream fresh food and some brilliant soups, just make sure you pay first then load your plates or you may get full before seeing everything. The food is excellent even though there is no meat, good pizza.
