I always try to eat at Sweet Tomatoes or Souplanation whenever traveling as who doesn't love soup and salad. My GPS took me on the long route to find it but it was worth it. About six or seven soup choices (I tried two) that were good. Busy place on a Friday night but we enjoyed everything and I highly... More

I really enjoy Sweet Tomatoes. It is delicious, healthy food at a fair price. It is by no means gourmet fare, but it does what it does very well.

I arrived here with an empty stomach and an excitement for the variety of food. We came for an early-ish lunch and almost no one else was there. I started with some different salads. The Caesar was fine and the croutons were nice and flavorful with a good amount of crunch. I disliked the quinoa salad, though, and found it... More

My wife and I would visit at least once a month when they first opened a few years back. This is when it was chicken wanton happiness salad and the rotating items were based off of a seasonal fruit and cottage cheese was always available. They since have removed the chicken from the salad and the rotating menu is not... More

The place is nice and quite. I came with my family to have dinner. The place was so packed and busy but there were no line or any delays. Everything was available. They have a great variety of salads and greens. 3 different kinds of veggie pizzas,backed potato, desserts, hot and cold drinks, and ice cream. I definitely recommend it

Join club veg - they send you coupons regularly. I never come here without one. We usually go to the Sweet tomatoes in Batavia and I like that one more. This one looks dirty. I am not sure if it is from the large atmosphere or if it gets more traffic-thus looking more run down. The pasta was not fresh... More

Good salad bar with many choices. Many soups choices also. Corn bread very dry. Pasta terrible. Too expensive!! $11.49 for soup and salad.

I have visited other locations of this chain and usually love them, but this one did not measure up. The salad was fine, but the salad bar looked like it had not been cleaned all day, the muffins and the bread were fine, but the pizza and the pastas were ice cold even when a fresh batch came out. The... More

We love coming here. They have the most extensive salad bar I have ever seen. Something for everyone. The variety of soups and desserts and other dishes is wonderful. Our granddaughter from Reno craves this place every time she visits. Very friendly staff and the place is always clean.
