This was my first time to dine at a Souplantation location for dinner. My cousin suggested it, and it was an interesting experience. At first it seems like you are in a cafeteria, but you go down the line and choose many items for your...More

We eat here quite a bit, and we were very disappointed in the food availability and the cleanliness of the salad/soup bar when we visited last night. Busy saturday around 5:30pm - restaurant was about 50% full. Staff behind the buffet seemed to be laughing...More

I decided to try the Encinitas Souplantation for the first time and to be honest I did not like as much as the Carlsbad location. It just seemed fresher and cleaner. But they did have a really yummy lava cake.

We enjoy eating at a souplantation. The staff are super friendly and helpful and the salad bar is always a hit. We went with our son and daughter-in-law and our four grandchildren, so it's a great place for families to eat at a reasonable price.

Here's a place set up perfectly for little guys to get around and eat things they love. The cafeteria style lets them see what they are choosing, always useful with picky toddlers.

Great salads and soups. Wide variety of tasty food at a great price. Love to got here but it can be very fattening so can't go too often.

By recently expanding the seating area, this restaurant takes the pressure off of finding a place to eat. The food is good, the soups can be bland. There are two registers for payment but only one person moving back and forth between them.

This is a soup and salad buffet. Big salad bar, pricy drinks, half a dozen soups and fresh baked breads and muffins. Inexpensive for a buffet. I liked it because salad is the star. I had some soup but they aren't anything too special. Typical...More
