Not for the meat lover but for us vegetarian's it is a dream come true. Salad fixin's galore, fresh soups, and my favorite brownie topped with soft serve ice cream. Always fresh, always healthy.

If you want to indulge yourself but maintain the diet there is no better place than Sweet Tomatoes. Great salas, soups and baked items to select from. I'm a meat lover but I really enjoy this place.

We have enjoyed dining at Sweet Tomatoes for many years. Their ready-made salads are always great - my perennial favorite is the "Won Ton Happiness" salad, with its Asian dressing and won ton strips among the romaine lettuce. Very tasty! The soups are all delicious, and there are baked potatoes & sweet potatoes to add substance to your meatless meals.... More

When entering restaurant you choose salads first or make them, then you pay for your meal. Then are selections of pasta, soups, fruit, and desserts. There are several soups, chili, cream of potato, vegetable, clam chowder, cream of mushroom, etc. One can go several times through the buffet. Very good. I especially liked the cream of mushroom.

Salads and soups abound with flavorful dishes everywhere. Special dishes are always being offered and you are tempted to eat too much

I love salads but my husband doesn't, but he enjoys eating here as much as I do. He gets chili, pizza, pasta and ice cream for dessert. The greens have always been fresh and with a large variety. My salad is usually huge and I start with spring mix lettuces, spinach, marinated beets, peas, cucumber, tomatoes, green pepper slices and... More

Ate here during lunch and it was busy! They kept everyone moving and found seating for us though. This was our first visit and we didn't realize how it worked, but we figured it out easily enough. The food was fresh, soup was hot and not overcooked. Staff were friendly and accommodating. We will go back if we are in... More

We found ourselves in this area of Tampa around lunchtime a couple of times during our trip, so Sweet Tomatoes was a good option. You know what to expect, the pricing is modest and the 'serve yourself' business model guarantees value for money. This unit lived up to the consistent and high standards set by the company and we enjoyed... More

I am glad we found this chain near the airport. We fly frequently and when possible we stop there for lunch. We are never disappointed! I love the "coconut bread" i would eat 5 at once.. People is friendly. Place is clean. I will come many times!
