This is a cafeteria that has a great selection of salad fixings and soups plus pasta dishes and an amazing choice of rolls. The desserts are good too. Prices are OK but you get a lot for your dollar

My wife loves Souplantation and the closest one to our hotel is the Lakewood location. We went late at 8 and felt some dishes needed cleaning and some salad dishes weren't as fresh as can be. There weren't any raisin or corn tonight. They had...More
