“Great fresh food, good price and constant discounts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

I love this place, they have a big salad bar with some premade salads and you can make your own. The variety of soups they offer meet every person, vegan, gluten... The fresh baked bread is the most delicious part of this. I love this place specially since I am a fan on their Facebook page were they usually have coupons for great deals.

“Great Place just hate the coupon game!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

Now if you are into salads this is the place to go! We enjoy it so! Even at their peak season and hours the place is kept clean and fresh. There must be tons of salad being consumed daily. Preparation is very well done. Then you have an amazing selection of soups as well, not to forget breads, sweet treats, pastas and a nice ice cream self serve bar. All is very well done.

My only caution is to not forget to print your coupons! This is the rub for me. I do not want to eat as much as I see some folks waste there. They pile it on their plates and start over with a new plate. Well we are all paying for that friends. So I feel the venue is over priced to recover on the waste. So if we forget our coupons we forget to stop -sorry gang! In this day and age people have email on electronic devices and printing is step out of touch with your customers. Oddly we go down the road those days hoping that the next time we have a properly dated coupon.

“Healthy feast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

Even though there are not any real meat selections to speak of, there are definitely healthy food choices at this place. If you like salad, soup, bread sticks, pasta, and fruit, then this place is for you. Every time I have gone to eat here with my wife there is a different "theme" of of specialty food, such as Italian, or Asian, very berry, etc. Don't go without researching online for a coupon or you will pay full price! Every person I have introduced to this place has liked it as well.

“Great Healthy Buffet!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

When I visit Ft. Myers that time comes you jusy need a salad with extras and Sweet Tomatoes is that knid of place. A huge salad bar greets you as you come in.When you have finished that line, another group of additional healthy items like baked potatoes, soups, fresh baked goods and desserts tops your food adventure.
It is a great break from the ordinary!

“For salad lovers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

If you love salads, homemade soups, and breads you will love Sweet Tomatoes, a large buffet with anything and everything you might want to construct on a salad. Don't miss the rather large soup/chowder section as well as the baked potato bar. The only downside might be during crowded times when customers are finding their way around the selections. Otherwise, you will find something here you like... and lots of it.
