I was so pleased to find my favorite salad buffet restaurant here in Fort Myers. Great food for everyone, if you're trying to have a healthy yet plentiful meal. The manager & staff visited our table a couple times to greet us & they even gave us a complimentary bag of chocolate chip cookies, which we all loved. Great dinner... More

We have been on the road for some time on this trip and fed up with chain restaurant food with mash potatoes that get delivered on the back of a truck. We were desperate for some fresh vegetable, tasty food without added chemicals and a really nice salad. This place hit all those buttons and at a ridiculously cheap price.... More

Whether you have been hiking all day or just riding on a tour bus, this all you eat salad bar is the answer for anyone wishing to eat well of vacation. Their soups and fresh breads are a hit as well as the ice-cream machine.

So sweet tomatoes is essentially a giant soup, salad, and pizza buffet. As a long time vegan I have gotten used to being disappointed at restaurants... but not typically at restaurants with salad bars. Even then, I still tend to bring my own dressing. You would think heading to sweet tomatoes, a restaurant known for soup and salad, I'd be... More

Very friendly staff. Food very fresh and constantly being refreshed. Large variety of fresh soups and three types of freshly made pastas. The fresh bread is also great.

I get excited just thinking about visiting Sweet Tomatoes. The fresh ingredients on the salad bar are a wonderful selection of salads and lettuces and veggies and fruit. Then I go to the soup bar, the potato bar, the pasta bar, the breads, and even desserts. We taste each others selections and go back for seconds. The staff works hard... More

Came here not sure what to expect but was pleased! Not much in the way of meat if you're looking for that but the soup and salads are fantastic!! Assorted breads, pastas and dessert included!! Worth a try.

Sweet Tomatoes is a good place to go for lunch when you are in mood for a buffet that includes salads, soups, breads and a few pasta dishes. The restaurant is clean and it is a good value. It kind of reminded me of a vegetarian version of Ponderosa’s buffet. The food is decent for the price.

Thank TimothySpring
