This was a nice place to stop off at for a weekend lunch... good selections at the salad bar... and the soups were piping hot and delicious... Very reasonably priced.

If you have been told to try eating less meat in your diet, this place is a great starting point to make you and your doctor happy. Yes, it is a cafeteria style eating place, but all of the salad bar selections could not be more fresh or organized to look more appealing. The soup bar gives some more middle... More

We stumbled into this place; had never seen one before or even heard of it. I have a pile of food sensitivities - allergies, lactose intolerance and more. This place has plenty of options for every taste, preference, mood and need. Service was very helpful. Great for families!

This place is better suited to lunch. The cleanliness, especially in the soup and desert areas, is suspect. There are many opportunities for contamination. I noted a couple of practices which would make health inspectors quiver.

Ate here recently and also last year. Salad bar was average. But both times the hot food area was poorly stocked and and messy. Have eaten at these restaurants (also known as Sweet Tomatoes ) and generally enjoyed them but won't be back to this location.

We love Souplantation (a.k.a. Sweet Tomatoes)! The chain hasn't reached out to the tri-state areas yet so we always cherish the opportunities when there is one during our travel. Unfortunately, this particular location truly disappointed me; let me explain: We visited here on New Years Day. The layout and soup choices are exactly the same as other locations but we... More

The salad bar is endless For one small price (10.50 US) you get salad, soup, fresh bread, chili, etc etc. Finish your lunch off with soft ice cream bar
