When I had a lot of meetings up north, this used to be a regular stop. It was always ok but nothing great. This was my first trip to the one in Sarasota and I was impressed. The salad bar was both fresh and immaculate....More

We ate at this Sweet Tomatoes multiple times while on vacation, and the salad was fresh and delicious every time! This location is newer, clean, and has a beautiful outdoor seating area.
