Sweet Tomatoes was a good alternative to the usual buffet restaurant, for lunch or dinner. The selection had a nice variety of soups, salads, bread, pasta, desserts, etc. Unfortunately they are now closed.

Whenever I eat at this salad buffet, the food is fresh, crisp, and flavorful. A great bang for the buck. Hot breads, focaccia pizza, soups, salad, baked potato, pastas, deserts, ice cream...something for everyone

I'm always skeptical of buffets but this won't disappoint. There are many vegan options which is hard to find. The soups and chili are amazing. Great flavor with plenty of fillers inside. I had small bowl of each before eating much else. The black bean...More
