Good selection of soups. Salad bar is ok but nothing out of the ordinary. Pretty good selection of bread/muffins. Kids like the pasta bar. Really family friendly and the staff is very pleasant.

This is one of my husband's favorites, because he gets a chance to build his own salad, just the way he likes it! His salad is a work of art :) He adds a little of everything on his plate except beets and onions ( which he hates). I like mixing the soups, I will mix the green chile corn... More

I was charged for a drink ($2.49) when I wanted water. I asked for a refund. THe cashier called the manager to assist. The manager instructed the cashier to give me $2.00 I didn't look at the receipt assuming it was less that $2.00 plus tax and that the manager was trying to make it easier on the customer. WRONG....

Long salad bar, with many toppings,at least 5 different kinds of soups all good, 3 different pastas, baked potatoes, pizza bread, small muffins or mini cakes? Soft serve ice cream with chocolate topping, almost everything, but protein, or any meat if you'd like. I like it, my husband hates it.

If you've never been to Souplantation it is good for soup and salad. The service at this location was great and we had plenty of food while visiting with family.

We love the fresh veggies and salads. My daughter loves this place because they have great breads, macaroni and cheese and dessert. This is a chain so the food is the same everywhere but we do come here often. This location is clean enough and it's healthy.

The soup selection and choice of add-ons to make the salad of your choice gives you a wide variety of items to personalize your meal. If you're a senior, they offer a senior discount. This is a good alternative to sitting at a typical fast food restaurant.

I've been going to this particular restaurant in Costa Mesa for quite a few years until I moved to Georgia. Now I have to wait until I have to make a trip to Orange County to go there. They do have a "sister" restaurant called Sweet Tomatoes here in Georgia, but it certainly isn't the same, either in food selection... More
