“Adequate meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Sweet tomatoes serves unlimited salad, soups, hot breads, and some pasta dishes. Lunch here was typical for Sweet Tomatoes to me, adequate but not outstanding.

“Lots of choices and good cost.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

The types of salads and choices of topping were amazing. We loved there baked breads and muffins. Delicious. The soups were okay and the fruit was a small selection. We loved the sundaes for dessert. We would go again.

“Great value.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

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.

“excellent buffet, well-cared-for”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

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.

“Great for kids and browsing a line of salads”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

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.
