I went to Sweet Tomatoes after getting a great verbal review about their soups from a friend. For lunch they have a great assortment of soups, salads, and other baked goods. I tried two soups, the chicken noodle soup and chili, which were very good. One of my favorite items that they serve there is the cornbread since it was... More

The "other" location is already on my DNR list because of the sanitation grade. This one just did make the cut at 92.5 Keep in mind that 2 of those may be for taking the class so what is the problem? I don't need to know. The salad was good but that's not why I paid $11.99. We got there... More

It was awful. Many empty containers at the salad bar, empty trays and pasta bowls in the other food bar. Soup selection was weird. Yogurt machine was empty of vanilla. Only 2 varieties of pasta which were no better than canned. Focaccia was like cardboard. Waste of time and money.

Five of us went here for dinner and it was a wise choice. There were so many healthy options for salad and soup plus flat breads and pasta. All of us got different salad combinations and everyone tried at least 3 small mugs of soup. Meal was so reasonable!

It's my first time to try Sweet Tomatoes. I love their salad and soup selection. Since it's fall, I tried their pumpkin soup and pumpkin soft serve ice cream. I love it! Been crazy lately about pumpkin spice. Will definitely come back.

Sweet Tomatoes is one of my favorite eat healthy eatery's. Nice selection of pre-made salads and fresh choices on the make your own. The soups are filling and a great variety to choose from. And a small cup of soft serve never hurts.
