“Good value at a very busy restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We visited the Orlando area at a very quiet time and had no waits anywhere (even for roller coasters) except at Sweet Tomatoes. They deliver lots of fresh food at a good price but there was a wait to get a table.

“Never disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

I have eaten at other Sweet Tomatoes and never written a review. I would apply this to any I have visited. The food has been outstanding. Yeah, it is a buffet but everything is fresh and really good. At this particular location the service was super friendly. Really a good break from the typical restaurant scene.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

We were looking for somewhere that wasn't, a burger joint. Had never been to a sweet tomatoes before and glad we tried this one. The salad bar is to die for! What a selection! Everything was super fresh. We even got a small bag of their cookies for being our first time there. We also had the home made pea soup which was wonderful! This is all you can eat so a very good value. Would definately go back again.

“Great Variety of Healthy Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

This is a great respite from theme park food. We weren't sure how it worked when we first arrived. You select a tray of and then fill a plate with as much of the salad bar as you want, then pay, after which point you can access the soups (many varieties) hot bar including baked potatoes, cheese breads, rice, etc, and dessert bar with soft serve ice cream. Everything is unlimited.

We quickly learned to scan the internet/coupon books for coupons before our next visit, opt for water instead of the fountain drinks and to plan for the type of mean you want. There is a 2-5pm Senior deal of $6.99 a person-- great deal. Our entire family leaves feeling healthy after the meal.

I wasn't sure how much to leave for a tip, or if FL requires clean plates each time you return to the foodbar, so I opted on the safe side for both questions.

“A savour for health freaks on holiday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

I love Orlando, but as a Brit who keeps it healthy being in Orlando can be tough for eating!

I had some coupons, which made the meal really cheap.

The staff are heal full and always cleaning which is a good sign.

The parking is easy.

The choice is good.

This place is not posh, it's very basic, it serves to purposes! 1) to eat healthy 2) to eat cheaply.

Recomend to Brits who strugle when in the USA, to find healthy food.

Try it you will like it!
