“Not just salads...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

My wife loves salads and every time we come to Ft. Myers, she mentions that she wants to come here but we never seem to make it. This time we made the effort and are glad we did. The salad bar is extensive with everything you could want and then some. Unlike many salad bars I've visited, this one is kept VERY clean. The extras; pasta, breads and such are very good. We were disappointed that there was no French Onion soup (our favorite). THis has been added to our "Go To" list.

“Great Salad bar with extras”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Awesome Salad bar with extra items, soup, pizza, make your own ice cream. Everything was fresh and clean. I was looking for a chocolate chip cookie and they were out of the ones for samples so they gave me a whole bag that was for sale free.

“Great Soup & Salads”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We came across this restaurant on Trip Advisor. From the restaurant's website we did not realize it was buffet style. Cost was about $11/person plus beverage. Really great choices in all the areas.

Salad bar had plenty of items to please everyone. Evidently they rotate some items every month. This month they had various asian items. There was probably 8 different soups. I tried small portions of 3 and they were all very good. They also had pasta, baked potato bar, bakery items, desserts - all for the price of $11. Everything was fresh and plentiful.

Tip -- sign up for their emails and you receive a buy one/get one free coupon. Good food.

“Monday in FL, light lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

I'd had eaten a number of times at Sweet Tomatoes in West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale on previous visits to FL.
I wanted to share the experience with my partner so I was happy to find this establishment in SW FL. There also was a Sweet Tomatoes in the eastside of Tampa.
In any case, the restaurant provided a wonderful selections of salads and soups. In addition the restaurant has a nice selections of fresh breads along with a number of pasta choices. The desserts unfortunately did not meet the standard of the rest of the restaurant.
I feel they provide a good value for there prices.
