“Surprising salad restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

I was invited by a friend to try something different and healthy. As a buffet restaurant it is a nice salad bar with very fresh vegetables and greens. I realized they take care to provide the freshest meal they can. We also can have soups, muffins, focaccia, pasta and dessert. This is one of the highlights of your meal. Fruits, puddings, cookies and frozen yogurt. Well, I loved it.

Another very positive point to mention is the attention given by the friendly staff. It is a very good option for vegetarians.

“Good salads and soups!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

With coupons you get a good deal for Sweet Tomatoes. The food is usually fresh and replenished regularly. This location is busy and customer service is good.

“Best Salad Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2010

The restaurant entrance intices as you walk in to various types of salads and add ons to your choice. It is a place recommended for vegetarians as they offer wide variety of selection in salads and other hot food items. The Bake potatoe Bar is a must try with the fruits and pudding as dessert items. Its all you can eat !

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2008

This was my first real buffet experience. Aside from hotel brunch buffets, I was a beginner and this is an amazing place that makes it easy to eat a lot and eat healthy. Crowded at dinner time.
