All of you are aware that Sweet Tomatoes is one of our favorite restaurants to visit when we are traveling. There are none right near our home, so when we make a trip, we try to include Sweet Tomatoes in our plans. My son (17) has always liked Sweet Tomatoes, but recently he has become a salad fanatic, so of course he was excited about our planned visit to Sweet Tomatoes.
Have any of my neighbors ever been to a Sweet Tomatoes or Souplantation? This is the perfect restaurant if you are craving a fresh salad. The best part is, that it is all organic and freshly prepared that day.

When you first enter Sweet Tomatoes, you grab a tray and plate and begin your journey down a salad bar filled with all sorts of salad items. You have your choice of a few premade salads, now when I say pre-made, I mean they are mixed up right there, that day.

Next you can choose from Iceberg, Romaine, or a few other greens to start your own salad. From there you move on to cucumbers, onions, green peppers, olives, carrots, squash, rotelle pasta, cheese, sprouts, and much, much more. I was sad to hear that they no longer carry their premium toppings, which although you have to pay a little extra, I always chose these. They included some meat you could add to your salad.
|So many choices!|
|How can you decide?|
There are some potato salads, broccoli salad and a few others you can add to your heaping plate, if you have room.

Now, as if this wasn't enough, after you fix your salad and find a place to sit down, you can add from a variety of soups, baked potato, chili, and a few bread choices. They also have a beverage bar, where you can choose from several juices, soda, and milk. And of course they have dessert. My husband and son both had ice cream!
A little about Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes:
The very first Souplantation brought delicious, healthy dining to San Diego in March 1978. Industry experts credit us as being the first casual eatery brand to serve fresh, wholesome menu options.
In 1983, Garden Fresh Restaurant Corp. was founded by Michael Mack through the acquisition of the first two Souplantation restaurants. As we continued to grow, we began to pursue growth beyond our core Southern California markets. In order to enhance our brand and reflect our dedication to fresh, wholesome ingredients, we adopted the name Sweet Tomatoes for new restaurants outside Southern California.
With 112 company-owned restaurants in 15 states, over 300 million guests since 1978 have helped us to be #1 in fresh produce and salads, made-from-scratch soups, hot-tossed pastas, freshly baked breads and muffins, fresh fruit, frozen yogurt, and more.
We pride ourselves on offering an all-you-care-to-eat dining experience where each of our guests can create a meal tailored to their needs. Of course, you can count on fresh, high-quality ingredients and daily made-from-scratch menu items.

I also want to stress here, how nice and clean Sweet Tomatoes always looks. Yes, sometimes they are very busy, and we have had to ask for a table to be cleared, but they are always quick to do this for us. I am talking about the overall appearance inside. It is clean and the employees are polite.
Now, here is some really great news for my neighbors! One neighbor will receive two passes for Sweet Tomatoes. This is for the meal only and does not include beverages.
