It's a buffet of salad. With soup. And some bread. And an ice cream machine for dessert. The kids loved it. I found it just ok. It is pretty expensive so beware of that.

It's confusing when you enter the place, no hostess. I had to ask an employee that was filing the trays where to go. I walk in and see people around a salad bar, like a buffet and you pay at the end after making your salad.

Oh,I loved this place especially because of my love for Italian food particularly salads and dressings ! I am a vegetarian and there were plenty of options to choose from which cheered me ! The desserts were yummy so was the pizza and the breads. Would definitely visit once again .

I was a big fan of Sweet Tomatoes and especially I loved this location. However, my visit yesterday (7/10/2016) frustrated me a lot. There are no spoons I can use. They are completely not clean. So I have to clean by myself to eat something. I cannot imagine how come they initially put those spoons to serve people. I've checked... More

So glad to find a Sweet Tomatoes! My first experience was in Fort Myers, Florida...and I have been craving this fantastic, fresh buffet offering ever since. The wonderful assortment of vegetables on the endless salad bar would be enough, but then you have no less than 4 different homemade soups to select from. Then there are the baked sweet or... More

We have made this a regular stop, every week this past 6 weeks. All for one price, you can 'binge' on the lovely array of veggies on the vast salad bar, then have a fluffy baked potato with whatever trims you like, choose from 5 or 6 tasty soups, pasta if you want, great breads and yummy muffins, and a...
