  1. If all locations are the same basic layout, then you should consider moving the Hot Fudge Lava away from the bread, pizza and bread section. There’s only one stack of plates to the right of the Fudge and always a line for the “sweet” item causing a traffic jam or at least blocking access to the plates to just get some bread. Otherwise, my girls and I thoroughly enjoy all the variety and freshness of all the foods.

    Oh and some hand sanitizer at the front of the buffet line and at the end since a million people handle those little black tongs all day/week long. 🙂

  2. Please consider one of your restaurants in our area soon! Chattanooga, TN Thanks! We really wish we had one here. Just got back from Mesa, AZ and ate such delicious food at Sweet Tomato restaurant. None like it!

  3. Sweet Tomotoes is my very favorite restaurant. However, I do agree with Sean’s comment, we need HAND SANITIZER by the trays with a large sign stating , ” FOR THE PROTECTION OF ALL OUR CUSTOMERS PLEASE USE OUR HAND SANITIZER BEFORE PICKING UP YOUR TRAY” THANK YOU!

  4. You should look at putting a restaurant at La Costa Ave & Rancho Santa Fe Road, Carlsbad, CA in the new shopping center being build there soon. This would be a very busy restaurant.

  5. Please consider putting a restuarant in Flower Mound, TX -Super Target, Dicks Sporting, Hobby Lobby, JC Penney’s, Belk’s – we get the normal chain – Jason’s Deli, Red Robin, Wings place -this is a community that is VERY health conscience – Lifetime Fitness down the street. WE NEED YOU! I am a Realtor – and I have visted several of your restaurants and have turned so many of my clients onto you guys. But we have to drive about 20 minutes to get there to the closest one – and that’s with NO Traffic. We love you! Eating at your Irving Restaurant tomorrow, Jan. 21 – with 4 of my friends that have never been there.

  6. please consider a restuarant in El Paso, Tx. We only have one restuarant that is for salad lovers. I have to go to Albuquerque in order to get my Sweet Tomato fix. Aluquerque is the closest to us and that is a five hour drive. The perfect spot would be at loop 375 & Montwood. It is a new shopping mall with several other eating establishments but no salad spots.

  7. I’m a bit jealous, my son has a Sweet Tomatoes discount keychain fob. I’ve been unable to find the same item. Surely would happily accept and use such tool.

    Would also love a restaurant in Taos, NM. Probably a bit smallish for your organization but you would do well there as most current restaurants offer high priced food.. I invite you to use Indian Hills Inn, Taos Plaza while studying the market.

  8. We absolutely love your Stafford, Texas restaurant. My 4 little grand-boys love to eat there when they are visiting. Their favorite? The tiny ice cream cones … if they eat their lunch or diinner!
    Could you try to cut back on the sodium – especially in the soups! A cardiologist would tell us not to eat them! I know salt makes food taste so good but it is so bad for us! You do a really good job with the saturated and trans fats and we do appreciate the nutritional value listings! Thanks!

  9. We had the pleasure of eating at one of your Sweet Tomato restaurants while in Disney last month and we just fell in love with the idea. We are in connecticut and have nothing like it here but would love it. It would be a hit and if you are considering it let me know as I would love to be part of getting it off the ground. Looking for something big – and I think this is it.

  10. Every time I visit my daughter in St. Petersburg, Fl I have to visit Sweet Tomatoes in Largo. We dine there not once but twice in my week’s vacation because I know once I go home to Indianapolis, I will go into withdrawal again. We do not have anything even close to your restaurant anywhere in Indiana.
    Please open one on the northside of Indy!! Please, please, please.

  11. Congratulations on you success, wonderful food (receipes), variety, staff attitude, and more. I drive 150 miles to my nearest Sweet Tomatoes in St.Carles Il. I have taken as many as 6 women on a road -trip there just to eat at S.T.. My friend whose son went to college at Notre Dame drove miles out of her way to eat at S.T.. I have a condo in Ft. Myers Fl where I spend much time @ S.T. When in Orlando it’s S.T.. My daughter and I just last week spent a week at the J.W. Marriott Hotel and Spa and ate at Sweet Tomatoes many times ( she accuses me of planning our trips around S.T. locations. I just returned April 18th from Phoenix– Now Friday night, May 14th, girls night out with daughter, cousins, and my Aunt. We will be at ST. in St. Charles Il. You really need to get me one here!!!! I AM adicted !

  12. I just had my first meal at your restaurant while in Dallas visiting my kids. It was a great experience and a healthy one. I know from looking at your map the nearest one to me is in Ill. When can we expect this fantastic place to open its doors in Lexington, Kentucky. You know we are host to the World Equestrian games this year as well as huge basketball tournaments, the Spring & Fall racing crowd and the Rolex Event. Plus we have nothing like this in town. Please tell me your on your way!!!!

  13. We really enjoyed visiting the Sweet Tomatoes in Florida on our trip south recently. Any plans to expand into the Northeast (Boston area)?

    1. No plans for Boston yet. We hope to expand in the Northeast in the future but unfortunately not anytime in the immediate future. Hopefully you can get to Souplantation/ Sweet Tomatoes on a work trip or vacation.

  14. I visit your locations more than a hundred times a year in FL, GA and NV (2 to 3 times a week). All except ONE have consistent quality. Your location in Lady Lake, FL is PATHETIC. Plates are consistently put out wet and not properly cleaned. Baked goods are terrible, typically undercooked and poorly prepared. Today for example, the blueberry muffins were very tiny and (and other muffins) basically RAW. When I inquired, I got a laugh from the lady that helps you and she said, yes several people do not really know how to prepare and bake. She said it is just a game of chance each day who is assigned that duty. Well…I have seen this recurring for months. Regretfully, management at this location is quite poor and that is reflected by the issues I have described (my wife and I have a ongoing laugh when we visit as to if the baked goods will be edible that day). Unfortunately, this is my “home” location and I have decided I will simply stop visiting the location.

    1. Hi Jeff, thanks for taking the time to send us your feedback. We assure you we are committed to providing the highest level of quality and freshness for our guests, and will certainly follow up with the team at Lady Lake and the area director.
