Salads and soups abound with flavorful dishes everywhere. Special dishes are always being offered and you are tempted to eat too much

I love salads but my husband doesn't, but he enjoys eating here as much as I do. He gets chili, pizza, pasta and ice cream for dessert. The greens have always been fresh and with a large variety. My salad is usually huge and I start with spring mix lettuces, spinach, marinated beets, peas, cucumber, tomatoes, green pepper slices and... More

Ate here during lunch and it was busy! They kept everyone moving and found seating for us though. This was our first visit and we didn't realize how it worked, but we figured it out easily enough. The food was fresh, soup was hot and not overcooked. Staff were friendly and accommodating. We will go back if we are in... More

We found ourselves in this area of Tampa around lunchtime a couple of times during our trip, so Sweet Tomatoes was a good option. You know what to expect, the pricing is modest and the 'serve yourself' business model guarantees value for money. This unit lived up to the consistent and high standards set by the company and we enjoyed... More

I am glad we found this chain near the airport. We fly frequently and when possible we stop there for lunch. We are never disappointed! I love the "coconut bread" i would eat 5 at once.. People is friendly. Place is clean. I will come many times!

I hate to give this restaurant a 2 because I am a fan of Sweet Tomatoes but this location is not so great. I prefer the Brandon location. All of the soups and pastas were bland. The pizzas were good but I don't really go to Sweet Tomatoes for the pizza. Also, the sundae bar was also a disappointment because... More

Whenever I head to Florida, I make a point of going to Sweet Tomatoes. The salad and soups options are great. I love the breads and pastas and always top the meal with a hot brownie muffin with soft serve.

The quality of the buffet items is comparable in flavor to other buffets. Their schtick is everything is natural, organic, fresh and the have vegan options. This was my first stop at one of these and I didn't know what to do when I walked in. They sort of have people clearing plates, but they don't really have wait staff... More
