We were visiting Sarasota and knew we would find great food here. Love the fresh salads on the salad bar, the hot soups and the muffins. Good prices and you can always get another bowl of soup or go for the soft serve ice-cream. Enjoy!

We come here every year when we visit town. It's not gourmet but it's a solid meal. Vegetables are always fresh and they have a nice assortment of salad dressings. I like the small pizza squares as well.

Sweet tomatoes is a refreshing escape from overly salted, deep fried, and over processed foods. We were pleased to discover so many selections of delicious soups, salads, breads and pastas, and the price is right. We will be back often.
