After a long morning walking around we stopped at SweetBerries. All four sandwiches were good. Got the combo's. Nice sides. Drinks. Custard. Had the Butter Pecan. Not so flavorful, but still refreshing. I'd try a different flavor next time. But, over all we had a...good meal and a good time.More

I love Sweetberries. I usually get their black bean and sausage soup or a grilled hot dog. Both are excellent. Today I thought I would try their chicken salad. It was the driest, blandest chicken salad I have ever had. I asked for a packet...of mayonnaise and mixed that in. It still was not good. I added a little salt. Still no improvement. I don't know if this was an off day, but when I go back I will stick to my usuals.More

Loved our quick visit this week. Even though the temp was in the 90's, the patio was shady and relaxing for lunch. Chocolate custard was delicious and my my friend enjoyed the veggie wrap. The only thing that would have made it perfect would be...to carry Zapp's Voodoo potato chips (or maybe they were just out of stock?) We really appreciated the bowl of water for our dog.More

We discovered SweetBerries in Bradenton years ago and were thrilled to find the same great quality delicious food in Gainesville! You order from an outside window or inside at the counter and your food is brought to you after you’re seated. LOVE the vegan/vegetarian choices...and oh oh oh those custard concretes!! Nice shady patio for dining or inside or carry out. Parking is limited especially crowded at lunch.More

This is a restaurant where you order at the counter and they bring the food to you. The food is always good. I love the Carolina Hot Dog. It is grilled which is the way I like my hot dogs. My only suggestion is don't...go on a Friday. They are always super busy on Fridays and service is a little slow.More

First visit here. Great place to take families with kids! The food looks good; will try it out for lunch sometime. I bet this place is hopping during the summer. I only tried their custard... they only have vanilla & chocolate and a featured flavor...of the day. Had a small SweetBerries Sunset Concrete with some nut toppings (concrete is basically their version of like Dairy Queen Blizzard) and its actually pretty good. Definitely will return to try other varieties!More

We ordered takeout this past week. The sandwiches (Cuban and tuna melt) were quite good. The custard concrete was the real reason we ordered and was a disappointment though. Just not the quality we've had at other places. Service at the register was terrific and...friendly.More

Stopped in for dinner. Fresh eclectic place with a variety of sandwich options. Different custard flavors each day and many mixed options. All was very good.

You enter this funky and friendly restaurant and are greeted with smiles and staff waiting to take your orders. The tables are laminated and decorated with art designs. There is art hanging on the walls and stained glass hanging by the large windows that overlook...a good sized shaded patio dining area. We ordered black bean and sausage soup, New Orleans Muffleta and chicken with goat cheese sandwiches each served with one side. Our sides were coleslaw and broccoli with bacon chips. The cashier takes the order and happily describes each order. You sit down and the food arrived soon after. Soup was delicious, served hot with sour cream and onions. The sandwiches were each served on focaccia bread and both were very tasty. The food and service were so good that we came back later that evening to get vanilla with strawberries and vanilla cherry chip custard that was so good. Next time we visit Gainesville we will surely stop by again. Special thanks to a smiling, very pleasant cashier named Jack.More
