This is a great salad bar! Not only do they have a great variety of stuff to put on your salad, they have spaghetti, pizza, soups, stews, chili, cornbread - something for everyone! And even softserve ice cream! We love this place. Everyone can find something and there's always enough seating. The staff is diligent at clearing. Comfortable. Highly recommend.

Fresh salad with many options to choose from. Tasty soups and even mini-pizza and pasta. Fill your boots for $13. What's not to like?

I brought my family as well as my brother's family here for dinner on a Saturday night and I was not impressed. The salad bar looks like something you would expect in a midpriced strip mall buffet and the pizza and soups were straight out of high school cafeteria. And even though we used some coupons from yelp, it still... More

I take my grandchildren here so they can fill up there plates with healthy veggies and salads. It's cafeteria style and you slide your tray along, piling on whatever you like. I wish there was more protein available though you can find some in the chunk chicken soup and cheese bread. They also have fresh fruit and ice cream desserts!

We got some discount coupons in the mail and decided to give Sweet Tomatoes a visit after a lengthy absence. In all, we were pleasantly surprised. The salad bar veggies were fresh, and the soups seemed to us more imaginative than in the past. The bakery had good variety and exceptional freshness. (But I wish someone would bake a cornbread...

The amount of choices offered for one low price is mind blowing. Make sure you come hungry. From the salad bar, to the soup buffet, to the breads, to the desserts, this place is worth every penny. The cornbread is exceptional. They also offer kid friendly choices such as pizza and more. It is fresh and delicious. I wish they... More

My husband and I went to dinner with some friends. We went later in evening around 8 pm. Even at the late hour, the food was all fresh. The salads were amazing. You must try the mushroom Bisque wow it's delicious. The deserts were good too. My favorite was the chocolate chip muffins and the mini ice cream cones. We... More
