It's a good place to get food away from home. You can eat light or heavy---depends on your appetite. You start with a REALLY long salad buffett line & then you pay & sit. They have tons of options...soups, pastas, salads....We'll be coming back!

Always visit here when in the area. It is a self service buffet restaurant and the salads are fresh and you can select from such a wide selection. There are always eight soups which are made from scratch and tastes to suit everyone. Also available are various breads and pastas and desserts. Absolutely fabulous and very fairly priced.

The other day, my friend and I stopped in for lunch, our favourite spot for great soup & salad, breads, etc. and we were greeted by an amazing young man, MATT... who took the time to welcome us, and gave us a great tip on trying the black bean soup & corn muffins... he was so pleasant,.and made our dining experiance even more pleasant...He told us he only works 4 days a week, so we are sure to go back when he is there...not only do they have great salad, but amazing soup, breads, dessert, etc... and so clean...pleasant staff, (especially MATT).. you must give it a try when in town..

Nothing we have found in Sarasota beats this restaurant for value for money, and the salad bar is second to none. Bear in mind this is not a meat eater's paradise, as the meat-content dishes tend to be in short supply - which helps keep the prices down - and are mainly concentrated in the 8 different soups, prepared fresh daily. (Personal favourite is the New England clam chowder, absolutely loaded with clams.) As well, there are meatless soup options here.
On the other hand your difficult-to-please vegetarian relatives will be more than satisfied here.
3 pasta dishes - both meat and meatless - baked potatoes, baked sweet potatoes, fresh-baked breads and apple cobbler, and a standard dessert bar with soft ice cream round out the menu.
