It's a good place to go if you want fresh salads with a tremendous variety of things to put in it. Very limited as to side dishes unless you like a variety of soups also. The soft ice cream is the best and really the only reason I go there. It's a good value for the money and they always... More

All you can eat salad bar, soup bar, potato (including baked sweet potatoes), pasta, breads, desert and drinks. All the food we had was great...wished I was eating carbs there was so much more I could have tasted. I was able to snap a few pictures on my way out the door.

The soups are always good, as fussy as I am I can always find one I really like. The Tapioca pudding is really hard to beat. The salads are good. There's something for everyone, and it's clean and quick. Great buy.

Great salad bar with all the veggie options you can imagine, plenty of other salad options such as pasta salads, potato salad, quinoa salad broccoli salad etc. There was a baked potato bar - regular and sweet, 3 pasta options, rolls and muffins. There were several soup options as well. The chicken noodle seemed to be mostly broth. The ice... More

Great Foods, many choices on salads with different types of dressings. Rotated frequently so they are always fresh. Same goes for the soups, love their clam chowder. Baked potatoes and yams, always done right. Employees friendly and helpful constantly keeping the tables and area clean. Usually meet and friend there and can chat for as long as we want, no...

This restaurant has a very good selection of items to choose from. They rotate their selections often so you get new items. Some are good and others you can pass on. The salads are always fresh with a good choice of dressings and additions. Service is excellent and the tables are always cleaned of dishes rapidly so there is no... More

We tried this for dinner last night. First, before 5 is senior price, $7.99 includes your drink. Food was fresh, lots of choices. I like that you go through the salad line and fill up before you go to the other choices. Several soups and deserts to choose from.

We drive over from Palm Springs every time we vacation here. Love the variety in salad and soups. And as we found out at the sister chain Sweet Tomatoes in Scottsdale arriving before 5 allows seniors a special $7.99 price including a fountain drink. Our favourites here are the corn chowder and broccoli and cheese soups. Also, the fresh made... More

We stopped here for lunch having never been to one but we knew it was the same as Sweet Tomatoes we had in Oregon. The place was clean and neat and the salads were being made as we walked through the line so they were all fresh with a great selection and a nice selection of soup. We were happy... More
