Review of Sweet Tomatoes Buffet – Will actually be more of an overview of what to expect at Sweet Tomatoes.
Located at 7114 N Fresno St, Fresno, CA 93720, Sweet Tomatoes is a healthy alternative to many eating out choices. It has a nice atmosphere, and most importantly, the food is delicious.
When you enter the restaurant the first thing you see is a stack of trays and plates standing before a salad bar that stretches out in front of you. At the end is the cashier’s station. I think this is a genius idea, because it kind of pressures you to eat a healthy salad before you fill up on other things. They also have a LOT of toppings available, so you can make your salad more lively. After you’ve gotten your salad, you slide the tray down to the cash register. Price is about 10-12 dollars per person, with children under 12 getting in cheaper.
After you have paid you can seat yourself, in the main building or in an add-on that can be accessed by going through another set of doors.
Now it’s time to eat!
There is something for everyone, and they offer both vegetarian and non-vegetarian items, with a little tab on the description card telling you which is which. Sweet Tomatoes offers a changing variety of soups. Some include Classic Chicken & Noodle, Cheesy Potato & Leek, Tomato, Clam Chowder with Bacon, and many more.
They almost always have classics like Mac N’ Cheese and Baked Potatoes, along with another rice or pasta dish.
They also have a variety of breads and muffins, usually still warm from the oven. I personally love their Focaccia and blueberry muffins.
The best part is that all of these things are made fresh daily, right on the premises.
Don’t worry about filling up your plate! You can always grab another at different locations around the restaurant.
There is a small section for fruit items and sometimes jello (if you’re into that sort of thing).
And when you’re so stuffed that you can’t eat another bite… too bad because there is a soft-serve ice cream machine in the corner! It has toppings like caramel and chocolate sauce, but also healthier options like granola.
Sweet Tomatoes has something for everyone, and is an economical way to get fresh, healthy food. I recommend it to everyone. Ciao!
