“Great place for everyone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

Went here twice while on vacation in Carlsbad. Very easy to get to, and reasonably priced. The kid's loved the mac and cheese and Ice cream bar! The adults loved the salads and soups! We will return!

“A nice place to go for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2012

Nice variety of food, something for everyone. I would say it's more of a lunch place than for dinner.

“It's a soup/salad bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

This location is generally clean and well staffed. I find the food to be average and as I am not really a large eater - pricey for what I get. The menu changes with the seasons and some seasons the specials are better than others.

“An Old Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2011

You can't beat Souplantations or Sweet Tomatoes. I always love visiting these restaurants in California because the produce is extremely fresh. This was no exception. We ate excellent salads and soups here for very little cost. Love this place!!!

“Healthy Food and pleasant atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2011

This is always a good place to stop for a healthy meal with many choices available.
Food is prepared continuously, so it is always the right temperature. The variety of soups changes daily; and the salad offerings are varied. They provide a number of different dressings, including low-fat offerings, and oil and vinegar also. It would be impossible to get an unhealthy meal here.

The weekend breakfast buffet is a favorite with kids. I try to bring my four Grandkids here when they are vacationing with me at the beach.

This may not be on the beaten track; but it is well worth the drive of a couple of miles from Carlsbad Blvd and Carlsbad Village Drive - where we stay when in town - to get here.
