This is a chain that we found recently in FL and have enjoyed both visits there. You start at the salad bar as soon as you enter and then pay. It is not by weight--just fill your plate and pay. If you are senior there is a discount, so be sure to ask for that. After paying you find a seat and then can help yourself to the pasta bar, the pastries/breads, and at the end there is a "build your own sundae" with soft serve ice cream. All for under $10. It is busy here and for good reason.

Service is hard to mark because there is little. It's primarily a self serve restaurant. Folks did come along and remove dishes as they were emptied.

lots of fresh veg selections, incl regularly replaced prepared salads, excellent baked goods in nice small portions, lush baked sweet potatoes. Food not over-salted as in so many other places. Particularly enjoy chunky chicken soup, chili, Mex meatball soup, pot pie soup.

Good prices, LOTS of tables, very kid-friendly. If you like fresh salads with all the trimmings, give it a try. You make your own selection. They have breads, soups, pizza for the kids, and desserts too. On a budget? Go here.

Been to Sweet Tomatoes many times. Always terrific for lunch or dinner. Food is always fresh with a large variety of salad fixin's with additional pre-made salads (like caesar, pasta, broccoli & chicken wonton), 'homemade' soups, fresh made pastas, baked white & sweet potatoes, bread, muffins, pizza, ice cream & toppings, fruit and sugar-free chocolate mousse (delicious). Buffet style with excellent, quick service for pick up of trays and used plates, bowls, etc.

To go to a salad bar in the state of Florida and to be severed the vegetables that I was severed is terrible. Tomatoes soft and mushy, bitter lettuce, barely any cold salads like potatoe salad or coleslaw etc. when I got to the pasta there was none, none empty bowls and some goober standing behind them. The bread was fresh and deserts were good. I'll pass next time. Use to be a great place to eat.
