Sweet Tomatoes West Palm Beach Reviews
A tasty, healthier alternative Sep 22, 2010
I've been to Sweet Tomatoes many, many times, and since I went again last night, I decided to finally write about it.
Sweet Tomatoes is a buffet-style, self-serve restaurant featuring salad, soup, pasta, bread and desserts, and very little - if any, depending on the month - meat.
I'm not a vegetarian, but if I were, I would consider this place paradise. You can have romaine or iceberg lettuce, or spinach leaves as your base, or even a pre-made Caesar salad. The variety of toppings is vast - everything from cheese to onion to corn to olives to garbanzo beans to jicama...too many to list LOL. And there are plenty of good dressings too.
They usually have a handful of hot soups to choose from that differ everyday; a couple of strictly pasta dishes; a potato bar; three different cheesy flatbreads; and different kinds of muffins (apple, blueberry, corn, etc.)
The drinks are mostly fountain drinks (okay, not so healthy LOL), coffee, milk, water - and some special drinks they make. I recommend the strawberry lemonade, which is usually so awesome they should bottle it and sell it at the grocery store (though it was strangely weak last night, admittedly). I'd probably go through two or three gallons a week if they did :)
And the desserts? Low-fat Edy's frozen yogurt in dark chocolate, french vanilla and a swirl of the two. Plus brownies, fruit, gelatin, sugar-free mousse and a special daily dessert. Sometimes it's a fruit cobbler, other times its lava cake (I've had chocolate, lemon and orange flavors).
One of the coolest things is that every two or three weeks, the restaurant has theme dishes representing a region of the world. They're currently doing the Mexico theme, so tonight I enjoyed a taco salad, Mexican pasta salad (which wasn't that good) and chipotle and tomato soup, among other foods.
Cost is usually about $15 a person for unlimited food and drink at dinner time, but less if you have coupons, which they e-mail to you monthly if you join Club Veg for free. One of those coupons allows two people to eat for the price of one, which my friend and I usually do.
I'm trying to think of something negative to say about this place, but I really can't. It's clean, the food is good, and you get your money's worth when you eat. It's no wonder I'm a semi-regular here. :)
