Fresh & plentiful

A clean establishment buffett with an extra touch. Lots of fresh salad ingredients, soups, pastas & bread. Used dishes quickly taken away to make room for more. Extra special touch was hand delivered hot chocolate cookies at the end of our meal. It's more than a Buffett

Went here to have dinner. It's a salad buffet and cost close to $12 per adult. The salad choices are good, but in the buffet dest should be signs saying what is what. Could be more like lenses and beans and tofu. To make it more filling. And more seed options like pumpkin too. Soups were good, my bf was... More

I was aware they served mostly salads. Choice of salads were boring, lack innovative choices. This was more like a cafeteria than a restaurant

This is an amazing restaurant! It is a buffet that has fresh salads, pasta's and soups. There are some desserts, but for the most part healthy options. I wish we had these in the midwest!

This was my second visit and the food has been consistently good. Omnivore visitors with me have enjoyed their meals, too. Everything was fresh and the buffet was kept stocked and clean. The exciting part is that each item on the salad bar is labeled if it is vegetarian or vegan. I was SHOCKED that they had a German potato... More

Whenever we are in Florida, we love to eat at this restaurant. Different lettuce, spinach choices with every topping you can think of. After you choose your salad, you get choice of soups, i had pumpkin soup. WOW. Excellent for pumpkin lovers. Breads, pasta salads, desserts. If you havent tried this place, you should. Prices are reasonable too.

Dined here for over a decade, but in the last few trips have experienced some bad "stomach issues"". Some good stuff has been diminished (think hard-boiled eggs, supposedly because of a shortage), no more chicken in the Wonton Happiness Salad. Cutting corners, to save on food expense may be bleeding over into food handling and food safety. After 3 instance... More

First the visitor, I would highly recommend this place, especially for those who have particular dietary requests, as everyone should like some things. Everything was very tasty...the homemade soy salad dressing was especially tasty!
