We were pleased to find somewhere for lunch that had healthy choices on the menu. The salad bar had a wide selection with some tasty dressings. However, the soups were disappointing - the noodle soup didn't have any noodles left! Fruit salad was whole apples. You can see that the place is run to keep costs down, which is fair... More

Used to come to this Sweet Tomatoes semi-regularly as a kid. This morning my family revisited it after a long absence. The meal cost us $45 for salads, cheap (and frankly tasteless - though yummy looking) pasta, and bread. The muffins have always been my favorite part about this restaurant. Today even they were much smaller than they used to... More

My kids and both of their grandmother's love this place, and I enjoy it too. Terrific salad bar (as you would suspect), and all the carbs you could want (potato bar, muffins, flatbread/pizza, pasta, soft-serve). The variety of soups are great, and I love their low cal tapioca pudding even more than their soft-serve ice cream. Don't miss their deep... More

This is a great place to eat, The one in Orlando is better since you can get meat on the salad bar. But I live close to this one and I need a salad fix weekly.

I like it here and the food it fresh and good. They have lots of selections for the large salad bar and a little Italian section with pasta and a soup area and desert area. Drinks a separate. If you go online and join that salad club you will get weekly coupons for the family and for couples and of... More

Second visit to a Sweet Tomatoes and the experience is just as good as the first. This all you can eat salad buffet is a great way to eat healthy while still enjoying a variety of good wholesome foods. The dessert bar is also a real treat if you can resist going back more than two times.They also have numerous... More

This is a large soup and salad bar, with pasta and fresh baked bread as well. They specialize in really fresh food. You enter in the salad bar line and build your own salad or scoop up one of the three already mixed salads. After ordering your drinks and paying, you have access to fresh baked breads, rice and potatoes,... More

If you are wanting to enjoy a nice meal out, but still eat healthy than this is totally the place for you. It is basically a large buffet that is heavy on the salad, soups/chilli, breads, and pasta. If you are a carnivore personality that this is probably not your thing as there really is little to no meat here... More

Whether for lunch or dinner, sweet tomatoes is my favorite. I've been going to it since it opened its doors over 10 years ago. It is consistent in every aspect. Great fresh salads and soups. Good pizzas and bakery items and all. Every time I feel like a fresh salad, I know where to go.
