We have found Sweet Tomatoes a good choice when our group has a mix of difficult dietary needs. It is truly do-it-yourself cafeteria-style food, so everyone can find something that suits. The salads have always been fresh and somewhat imaginative. The soups have good variety....More

When it's time to fill-up on fresh green salads, soups, chili, and a little bread nothing can beat this "all-you-can-eat" buffet style chain of restaurants. A nice senior discount and self serve means a minimal tip to which I must state the table cleaner was...More

The last couple of times we have eaten here we feel it is not really clean. Always crowded and things do not seem to be kept up. The variety of food is limited and not as fresh as it once was.
