Very similar to Sweet Tomatoes. Food was average. Price was good. Very crowded so atmosphere wasn't great.

One flat price........all you can eat salad and soup bar. Nice dining area outside. Reasonable cost and an awesome selection of items, including some local produce. Not a meat and potato kind of place but very very good. Highly recommend.

While I have not patronized a Souplantation restaurant before this visit, when you include the sister Sweet Tomatoes chain, I am an experienced guest of many years. I don't mind telling you that this, one of the first ever built, is run among the best, if not the best. Nothing is perfect, of course, but my experience was excellent. The... More

Just what I was looking for. A big salad bar, a good variety of tasty soups and soft serve ice cream. The baked sweet potato was a surprise bonus!

Ok, so being from SD and now living out of the area. I truly miss this place. Though being a budget place to have soup and salad they have added a little bit of flair to their items.

This is a pay a fee, serve yourself place. There's a good selection. There was a delicious Asian soup offered. Cannot recall the name of it.... but it was wonderful. Good value here, especially if soup & salad is craved. I recommend it.

We've been to a few different Soup Plantations while on our trips over here and this was one of the nicest. The place was clean and tidy, food was plentiful and it wasn't too crowded. Would definately go back there again.
