As a vegetarian, I find Sweet Tomatoes a refreshing alternative to the menu salads I'm generally forced to choose from when we go out to eat. This time, we used my Birthday coupon to get 20% off our ticket. When you sign up for Club Veg, you get a BOGO coupon and frequent coupons thereafter - you... read more

The restaurant had only been open about an hour, so we guessed maybe they Deep Santa Fe Black Bean Chili and the Chicken Jalapeno Tortilla soups were still being prepared, but they never did show up. The Deep Kettle House Chili & the Classical Minestrone soups were quite bland.

This place can be a healthy option. There are many salad options. You can add lots of toppings & dressing. The selection of soups is a nice variety. After that - everything is starchy. Potato, bread, pasta, focaccia. This place used to be a decent bargain. Their price has gone up several times over the years. Not much of a... More

We have been to Sweet Tomatoes restaurants in St. Louis and Phoenix, but this was our first time here. This one was clean, but felt a little old. The food was good as usual. The chain changes its feature salads and pastas at least twice a month, so there is always something new to try. Specialty salads, traditional salad bar,... More

The soups are delicious and of course, the salad is killer. Every possible salad item you can think of is at your disposal. Everything was delicious. I see why my Mama enjoys eating here so much.

The food was ok and there was a good variety of soups to be had. But we were in on a Fridy evening at 8 pm and the place was empty. Any time you encounter that situation on a buffet, beware. It may have just been an unusually slow night, but a slow buffet during what should be a busy... More

Sweet Tomatoes is a great place for a healthy, tasty salad. Soup selection is usually good. Don't go for the pasta... it's not too hot. But I go for the salad and soup, and it's awesome.
