Sweet tomatoes isn't about fine dining. But it offers quick, inexpensive meals that can be quite healthy if you choose wisely. The concept is simple: start with a long, varied salad bar. Build your own salad, try some specialty salads as well. Then visit separate islands for baked potatoes, pasta, & breads. Simple desserts are there as well. No alcohol, no frills, but clean, pleasant surroundings. Friendly staff. We'll come back here.

We checked the internet prior to going to the restaurant. The internet said that there would be cobbler and brownies for desert but once we were there we were told that these two items would not be available until after 4PM.

The theme this week was Greek.

There were only 3 leaf prepared salads available. The prepare your own salad bar was vast but no chicken or ham or bacon bits were to be found on the line. I had to work around one of the staff while she cleaned the sneeze guard. The blue cheese salad dressing was more vinegar than creamy blue cheese.
The pasta-ziti was cooked to mushy and rubbery. There were 3 pizza choices seasoning was bland. The soups were also bland. I had the black bean chili and the sweet potato corn soup. Others in my group had the type of chili and found it be bland.

The dessert that was available was a raspberry mousse, and a tapioca pudding, as well as a soft serve yogurt.

Compared to the Sweet Tomatoes in Tampa, Florida this was one failed.

The salad bar was GREAT! It had been at least 8 years since I had been to a Sweet Tomatoes. This was very good. Nice, fresh vegetables. No meat offerings that I can remember.

Had a tiny bit of several different soups and all were excellent. Several different types of bread were offered...YUM. I saw there was a pasta bar, too. Am I right?

Desert. Self serve ice cream with caramel sauce. Uh...when can we have a Sweet Tomatoes in Central Oregon??????????
