Sweet Tomato Restaurants
This group of restaurants advertise themselves as “a serve-yourself, all-you-care-to-eat dining experience featuring the freshest vegetables, salads, made-from-scratch soups and muffins, hot pastas and more! ” We had seen them for several years in Orlando before we paid them a visit and I really wish we had done so sooner.
The All You Can Eat experience costs about $10 dollars a head and really is great value. Look out for coupons in the Sunday papers or sign up for their email list to get discounts. Our girls love this kind of food but even my Father who is very much a steak man really enjoys the food. You pay for your initial drink and all refills are free. We like the Strawberry Lemonade made from real strawberries.
Sweet Tomato changes its menu each day with a different array of salads etc so if you want to go more than once during your holiday you do not get bored with the same selection of food.
We usually start with soup and each day there are at least six to choose from. Last time we went my parents both had Deep Kettle House Chili while I opted for Vegetable Medley which was low fat as was the girl’s Chicken Noodle.
Warm food is also on the menu and the girls both had Macaroni and Cheese and as they becoming quite expert on this in Florida it must have been good because they said it was about the best they had had in Florida!
I chose a Mandarin Spinach Salad with Caramelised Walnuts and Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes to go with it. My Father decided on a tossed salad of Wonton Chicken which he followed with Roasted Garlic Alfredo Pasta. Mother settled for a Tuna Tarragon Salad which she really enjoyed.
The girls had obviously left room for several muffins and between them shared an Apple Cinnamon Muffin (nearly fat free of course! ) a Banana Nut Muffin, Buttermilk Cornbread and finally a Chocolate Brownie one. I had Tapioca Pudding and yoghurt whilst my parents chose some fresh fruit.
Apparently every Sunday from 9am to 12 noon Sweet Tomatoes have a special Sunday morning menu. This includes scrambled eggs, waffles, biscuits and gravy, oatmeal, potatoes o’brien, freshly baked cinnamon chip biscuits, muffins, make-your-own breakfast burritos etc etc. This is in addition to their salad and soup bars. We have never been but believe it is very good and great value.
We are so pleased we visited these restaurants they make such a lovely change from a lot of the fast food on offer in Orlando and have a great selection.
