We ate here twice this week in Tampa. Always fresh. There are always enough choices to make everyone happy but they vary some of the choices and have different themes during the year. For example, "Lemon week" where there will be a lemon flavored cold salad, a lemon pasta, a lemon soup and maybe some lemon desserts. It's cheap, fresh,... More

If you normally like the salad portion of a general buffet, then this is the place. Soup lovers will love this place too! This derive was good too, but not excellent.

It was the first time I have been here and it was awesome. Everything is fresh and delicious. I live in Key West but I will make it a point to eat here the next time I am in Tampa. The soups were hot and delicious too. Loved the soft serve ice cream!

Instead of going to Denny's for the umpteenth time, we tried Sweet Tomatoes recently. Romano's Macaroni Grill is nearby and that's going to be on my list for another first time visit sometime soon. I'm in Tampa quite often traveling from Sarasota and I usually find myself on Dale Mabry for one reason or another. Plenty of restaurants and fast... More

Just moved to Florida and kept noticing this restaurant everywhere I go, so I decided to check it out for lunch one day. It's the most amazing salad bar you can imagine!!!!! There is also a soup bar, a mini desert and bakery bar and a drinks section. I absolutely fell in love with the wide selection of salad toppings... More

Love the salad bar and the always changing theme items. Try the Gluten Free Coconut Muffins with some vanilla frozen yogurt!

Heather and I went here yesterday for lunch. We got there about 12 o'clock, this was in between breakfast and lunch crowd. Not many people there and food was fresh and great like always. I used my birthday coupon so we both eat for $15. You can't beat that for great soup and salad.

This Sweet Tomatoes is exactly what you would expect from an excellent salad+ restaurant. It doesn't pretend to be gourmet fare, just good food in a clean, pleasant atmosphere. The instructions are simple: grab a tray and plate, and proceed down past a long line of specialty salads, fresh vegetables, and toppings, gathering your favorites along the way. Next stop... More

Went at lunch time with friends. Salad bar was extensive and beautifully displayed. Soups looked homemade and I wished I had room to try multiple choices. Did not try baked goods or pasta section but others did and expressed being happy and content with selection and quality. Soft serve a nice touch and several in my group loved tapioca pudding...
