Their cream of mushroom soup is to die for. They have so many choices on their salad bar it will make your head swim. Love the broccoli salad.

BUT, there is MORE. If you are of a mind, you can load up on soup that is loaded with protein if you hunt for the chicken in the chicken noodle soup, eat the pasole and look for the pork, etc. The salads have plenty of ingredients and it is cheap. Too bad the parent company is having financial problems.... More

This restaurant has good food but a bad concept. I do not plan on returning. I came for the Salad buffet but it really is not a salad buffet, its more like a one trip salad bar. As you enter the building you are already in line for the salad bar and do not really have an opportunity to enter... More

My hubby and I were on the road for 6 weeks and were hungry for veggies. We knew we could get our fill at Sweet Tomatoes...healthy food, great taste, and reasonable prices for all you can eat fresh food. We love the soup choices and salad ingredients; hot foot bar and desserts are just extras after we've had our fill.... More

Looking for someplace to eat that had a nice salad bar. A very nice variety of salad choices, soup choices and yummy ice cream. The service was good and the restaurant was very clean. Would definitely recommend this to others.

This place has raised their prices four times this year. For two senior we started out paying $17 without beverages and now it is $22. They get the kids who sell you the food that their vegetable prices keep going up.

My wife and I tried Sweet Tomatoes for the first time today. We were very pleased by the quality of the food, cleanliness of the restaurant, and the friendly of the staff. The young man at the checkout counter gave us a discount because it was our first time there. The food was very good, and my wife in particular,... More

We ate lunch there and it wasn't very busy. It surprised me because it was very good. The salad bar was plentiful on selection. There were 4 separate soups. Potato bar/nacho bar was offered; I didn't partake. I did have dessert however! Ice cream bar and cookies were okay. The best of the buffet is the salad by far. Its... More

We had a late lunch at Sweet Tomatoes. It is similar to a Souper Salad. They have a large salad bar as well as soups, pastas, deserts. A wide selection. Pricing wasn't too bad for what you get. The staff were friendly and professional.

You always know what you're getting. If you can use a coupon, it's still almost double what you pay at SouperSalad but it's light years better. Soups are always great. Salad options always look fresh. And the wait staff at this location are always friendly and on top of things. Please tip the wait staff. Nobody ever does.
