The Salad Bar lives on!

Remember those 1970's salad bars? They seemed to be everywhere back then. Those days are back again at Sweet Tomatoes. You can build your own healthy salad with all the trimmings here.

Super fresh extensive salad bar. Large selection of wonderful soups. Many warm bread selections From corn bread to focaccia bread and everything in between. A few basic sweet endings such as pudding, fruit and low fat soft serve with toppings. Very reasonably priced. Friendly and helpful employees.

We eat here every time we are in town because there is something for everyone, except my brother, Todd, who hates ST because he needs a lot of meat. The Wonton Happiness salad is delicious. There is pasta, potato bar, several soups, a variety of drinks, an ice cream bar, brownies, fruit, pizzas, muffins… You go through the line with... More

This is a good option for a light dinner. There are so many options for salads and dressings and after that soups, baked potatoes and nice cheese bread.

This place had an extensive buffet with a great array of salads and fixings and dressing. We went for lunch and thought the cost a bit high ( even with our discount) for retired people who may not consume a whole lot. The quality of the food was good and the choices were okay but we were disappointed with the... More

Fresh salads abound at this original eatery. The salad bar is enormous, and there are about eight different homemade soups, several kinds of bread, and 3-4 pasta dishes, not to mention fresh fruit and desserts. The healthiest American buffet around.

We go for lunch, I think the cost is a little high, but everything is fresh and plenty of it. Dinner cost a bit to much for us to go, but lunch is good, plus use your AAA card and get a discount.
