Buffet, self service, self seating. Number of selections have been reduced. Soft serve ice cream is still very good.

My family have been regulars at this soup and salad bar for the last 3 years. But on our last visit things had gone wrong: The cashier (Dianna) was rude and decidedly unhelpful and seemed to be doing us a favor in assisting us at payment with coupon. Plates were dirty on the top and bottom... several in the stack..... More

Located in a small shopping center with whole foods. Easy make it your self salad bar. Probably everything you would want on or in a salad is available. They also have a hot bar with soups, pizza, corn bread, chili, jello, rice pudding, and a cakes for dessert. They also have a serve yourself soft drink bar with ice cream... More

My husband and I have visited this location several times since we retired a year ago. Great for a quick luncheon of salad with lots of options to add in. For those with a bigger appetite the ability to add soups, pastas, potatoes makes in a more hearty meal. My personal favorite is their bakery with freshly baked breads, muffins,... More

Yes these restaurants have been around a long time but the reason is simple, they deliver on quality and price. From a full plate of different salads to a nice mix of soups and main dishes, to be topped off with several types of desserts this place is hard to beat

Excellent fresh salad bar with so many ingredients that you should be able to create a super healthy taste experience. Love the focaccia bread. Try it with the olive oil.

Consistently fresh and abundant vegetables, soups and breads. Very friendly service (Diane is great). Our 3 year old grandson loves this place and can't remember "souplantation" thus it's the "soup store". His favorite is the homemade chicken noodle soup - be sure to give it a try.

We took the kids and it has great prices for food that is not fast food. Great salad buffet and delicious varieties of soups. Loved that there was a fruit dessert station as well as soft service ice cream! Big hit and healthy.

Been a firm fan of this branch of the Soup Plantation chain for some time. Found that the soups were much better than those in Irvine, not earthy. Also the remodel made the place seem more alive and inviting. The food quality is pretty good, but during almost every visit, the plates are not clean with dried on food present,... More

We both loaded up on salad with the many add on items like celery, olives, onions, and on and on. The flat bread was especially good. The macaroni and cheese left me wanting. The pasta alfredo was very good. Strawberry lemonade was very good. We didn't taste all the soups that looked good, we did have the chili and it... More
