“Excellent healthy buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

We visited Sweet Tomatoes after reading trip advisor reviews....I liked the idea that you can eat as much salad as you want... The salad was nice and fresh... My son loves soup so he enjoyed trying a few different kinds...defiantly worth a visit...

“Fantastic.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Best food we've had in our first week in Orlando. Nearly walked out after seeing the school dinner buffet style serving 'warehouse' style. Glad I didn't as the food was fantastic. A large salad bar greets you on entry then parted with 46 dollars for four of us to eat as much as you like. Tiny soup bowls and side plates you don't eat a ludicrous amount but treat it more as a 'tasting' menu and you'll be fine. It's a pretty much soup, salad, pasta and home baking but cannot recommend this place enough. Will definately be back before we leave. In comparison to last nights dining experience at Landry's this was in a different league for half the money. The school dining hall experience may not be for everyone but you should definately give it a go.

“good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

The food is always fresh. The pasta bar and soup hits the spot after so many park meals. The Strawberry lemonade is something we look forward to every year now. Great place for a family to eat on a budget.

“Healthy option, and great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

This restaurant operates a self-serve, all you can eat soup, salad, pasta and muffins bar. All the ingredients are fresh and the price is reasonable. They have a range of fountain drinks, with lemonade and coffee. There is soft serve ice-cream with toppings. The atmosphere is one of brisk, somewhat noisy, but friendly bustle. We have eaten at a few Sweet Tomato and Soupplantation restaurants (they seem to use different names in different states) - every one has been clean, fresh, efficient and friendly.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Excellent fresh food, a great change from all the junk food available in the theme parks. The corn bread and the honey whip butter are delicious, I would eat them every day.
