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

Had a recent opportunity to visit this establishment after moving away 15 years ago. They were running an 'Asian Month' promotion where mixed salad selections, dressings and soup offerings were heavily Asian influenced. The infrastructure is differently looking tired, especially the closed in patio section. This location is showing it's age. The plates and bowls were new red color and... More

I first ate at this location in 99 while a student at a nearby big university...since then, there's one closer to campus, but this one is still solid and now updated with all the current SP's and ST's in the country...great to bring a friend from out of town and enjoy the healthy stuff.
