A variety of fresh!

We go here whenever we get a chance. The place is always clean, the food is always fresh, and the staff is courteous and pleasant. We enjoy the vegetarian options and love most of the soups. We would like to see some more options on the hot food bar other than pasta and focaccia.

This place reminded of Ponderosa but with a healthier selection of food at the same price. I was amazed with the types of salads you could create with the ability to have pasta and soap with no additional charge. I would recommend Sweet Tomatoes if you have guest that want a variety of food.

I don't like salad bars, but I love this place. I get the premade salad, lots of soup, maybe some foccacia, a muffin and dessert. It is all great.

This is OK for lunch but the dinner costs more and the food is the same. Not sure how that works... The Salad bar is decent but there are up-charges for items that probably should be included. They offer a number of soups and that's generally what I eat the most. Good for a decent quick lunch during a work... More

I agree with some of the other reviewers, it is pricey for the limited selection. There is a big salad selection and lots of soup, but as far as anything else it is primarily pizza or pasta. Drinks cost extra. The place does look clean. Wait for a coupon.

Fundamentally, it's a solid option: a big, healthy buffet of soups, salads, and other goodies. That said, you're spending a *lot* of money for a limited buffet. Food's excellent, service is excellent, just a bit pricy.

I'm sure there is a deal to be had here. But, I didn't find it. I thought it was expensive for what we had and like any buffet type deal, you wonder how clean stuff is and how long the food has been out. I didn't think this was anything that unique or amazing.

Great for all ages. Has food even the Pickiest eaters will choose. Great coupons for whole family's of 4 for $24.99 including unlimited drinks. Excellent choice of Real Lemonades and Coffees and Teas along with regular fountain drinks. Soups have a wide range and are very good. Very Friendly Staff and always replenishing to keep fresh

Salads, Soups, Bakery - That's what their sign says. Went with friends for early supper. They have a Senior Special from 2 to 5 PM for $7.49. Includes beverages and desert. What a deal; Can't be beat. Large salad bar. Potato bar. Pizza, pasta and other hot dishes. Fresh baked muffins and more. Great desert bark. Variety of beverages. Went... More

Selection of salads and soups was great (even teenagers liked it). Pasta dishes cooked too long though. Dessert bar has fruit and ice cream. Sign up online to their website to receive a 20% off your entire order coupon.
