I first noticed this place on Trip Advisor but forgot about. We were at the Visitor's Center and the lady there suggested that we take a picnic lunch to the park. I asked about a local sandwich shop and she mentioned The Tomato Place and showed me a picture of it. That is when I remembered it and decided to go.
I don't know if I would have noticed it if I hadn't seen it on Trip Advisor. It is a very eclectic little roadside fruit stand looking kind of place. Inside you will find tomatoes! And other vegetables. There is a freezer chocked full of various flavors of frozen smoothies. Pick one out and they will stick it into the microwave and then blend it up for you. We shared a strawberry one...very good and refreshing.
In the back you will find a small counter with sandwiches and a table piled with different types of home made bread. There are a few tables and chairs for dining. I ordered the tomato sandwich on wheat bread and my husband chose the club on wheat. While the order was being prepared in the little building next door, we walked around and looked at the various wares for sale. They have bottles of house made sauces that are poured into wine and beer bottles. The server brought out some fresh pork skins to sample along with the sweet pepper sauce. I am not a fan of pork skins but they were pretty good. The sauce was very good and the server added a little cup in our to go sack because she said it goes well with the club sandwich.
We ate our meals in the park and my sandwich was very good. My husband said his bread was too crumbly but otherwise was good.
