Always enjoy eating here. The restaurant is immaculate and the salads are always fresh with lots of options for healthy dining. I wish that they would have baked sweet potatoes, along with the regular potatoes. Helpful staff always making rounds to clear tables. Excellent value for the cost.

We brought friends who were eating at a Sweet Tomatoes for the first time and we all loved this location. The proprieter was very welcoming. Food was fresh. Everything was very clean. There were gluten free options if desired but of course we went for the blueberry muffins. Love all the salad selections. We would go back.

Sweet Tomatoes is a nice change. You start down a very nice salad bar. There are several soup choices, baked potatoes, pasta, etc. The brownie bites are SO good. The buffet offers a nice variety for all ages.

This chain has a huge salad buffet, all kinds of soups (typically 5-6, of which 2-3 are vegan), pasta, desserts, breads, etc. Flat price, which is very reasonable for all the place has to offer. Beverages are extra

This was a great place if you love salad bars and homemade soup. I've never seen so many fresh selections to create the salad of your choice! The staff were very friendly and the place was packed with hungry locals. I had their Mexican soup and it was delicious. The flatbread and pizza was quite tasty and the pasta was... More

My family of 4 often frequents Sweet Tomatos - it has everything for everyohne and the online coupons offer a great bonus.

Great for a vegan traveller! The soup was so good (and the bread) that I went back for thirds. So, so much better salad than a lot of salad bars that just offer iceberg lettuce and a few veggies. I highly recommend this salar bar for vegans and vegetarians.
