We always look forward to eating at our local Sweet Tomatoes. Such great value, especially when we get the senior rates. The soups, the bread, the salads............ and the coconut muffins Wow. I would have liked a little background music, but that might just be me. I can see it's a great team effort and I would like to leave... More

Been coming for years when we visit, food is good but prices have gone up higher that what I'd expect for mostly soup and salad.

Another one price, all you can eat restaurant with plenty of items to choose from, offering convenience and good service. The niche offering is salads of various kinds with accompanying soups and side dishes. None of the offerings are memorable or unique. Most all are average at best in quality. You certainly satisfy your overall hunger but may find yourself... More

At Lunch, you can only get soup and salad and a few other items, they need to offer more items, but everything was fresh, and there are no shortage of things to pick from,

This salad buffet restaurant is a real find: many salad choices, or you can make your own, with soup, breads, pizzas, desserts, and the usual choices of soft drinks available. Everything was very enjoyable, and you can eat as much as you care to eat. The menu offerings change from time to time, such as the pizzas or breads offered... More

Recently visited for a quick dinner. Have always been very pleased with the food. Salad fixings are always fresh and plentiful. They did not disappoint. I tried two soups, the French Onion was very good but the Chicken Noodle left much to be desired. The broth was virtually tasteless. Love the Blueberry muffins and the ice cream was a nice... More

Went for lunch and had large salads and bread. The buffet has everything you can think of for salad choices, and everything was fresh. There is no wait service- you serve yourself and can go back multiple times. This place is great for vegetarians and vegans and others that just want a healthy meal without meat. Pay one reasonable price... More

If you are in the mood for a salad based meal Sweet Tomatoes is ideal. It is kept clean, the presentation is appetizing. You can make a few different types of salad, different types of greens, many add ins ( no meat). You pay one reasonable price and you can refill as much as you like. In addition there are... More
