I used to go to one of these in Atlanta all the time. Sadly, there isn't one anywhere near where I currently live, so we decided to stop here for a quick lunch on our way out of town. Plenty of salad bar options (although it was rather disappointing that pretty much EVERY pre-made salad option included meat, even the... More

This is a cafeteria/buffet style restaurant focused on salads, soup, baked potatoes & frozen yogurt. Salad bar was not well maintained and lots of kids running around making noise. I did not feel that my salad mix was fresh. Staff members were not friendly and there was cook on his cell phone standing in the men's room.

I'm not a very big salad person. But for the variety of different things and add ons for your salad it was pretty good. This is a great place for a lunch or something to hold you over for dinner and its not very expensive so that's a plus also.

Good salad and soups, during vacation you need your portion of vegetable so we are happy about this place , always come back to this place in Lake Buena Vista. Only they need to pay attention of the hygiene and cleanliness of the plates and bowls and the container to put the plates and bowls which are often dirty. Thats... More

Based on my waist size you would think my interests for a lunch on vacation would be BBQ and beer. At 98 degrees in Orlando that is not an option unless you want to sleep the afternoon away. Then we stumble on this gem! Salad buffet? Oh hells yes! Crisp, fresh, delish! A welcome change that was perfectly satisfying. Definite... More

When you walk in you are met by a 55 foot salad bar. Everything on this bar is super fresh. The salad you build might be hard to carry because of all the good things you place on your plate. Then you select from 7-8 different soups. I had fresh mushroom soup, chicken and biscuit soup complete with biscuits...you get... More

This was my first re-visit to any Sweet Tomatoes location in numerous years and based I on it I'm certain I'll begin to return more frequently. The buffet line of salads was well maintained and all of the items were attractive and appeared to be quite fresh. The selections included a few seasonal items exclusive for the month. The pizza...

Sweet Tomatoes is one of my favorite restaurants in all the U.S. The selection of food is always vast and fresh. Over the years Sweet Tomatoes has evolved to add a few special treats each month and for a limited time only. There will be a special soup, salad, pasta and sometimes dessert. Join their own Club Veg and get... More

I love to bring the young, 3 and 5, grandchildren here. They get excited from the time they walk through the door. Getting to pick out the veggies, all fresh. The dressings are always delicious and they love the chinese noodles for dipping! Top it off with chocolate muffins, fresh from the oven, and ice cream with toppings, and they... More

We have long loved Sweet Tomatoes. We don't have one where we live, so we make sure to try and find one whenever we are on a trip. Fortunately, we found one in Orlando for our Disney trips. The concept of Sweet Tomatoes is all you can eat in soups and salads. There are a few other items as well.... More
