I love Whole Foods Market's organic Cold Salad Bar, Deli Bar, and Hot Bar.
And I love Sweet Tomatoes! The location at old town in Dallas just opened in May of 2012. Sweet Tomatoes is an all you can eat salad bar, soup bar, and bakery. When I went they gave me a coupon and my lunch was only $5.99! The normal price of the all you can eat lunch buffet is $8.29 and the dinner buffet is $10.29.
Sweet Tomatoes salad bar has almost every raw veggie you could imagine: raw shredded zucchini, raw butternut squash, raw summer squash, raw brussels sprouts, raw carrots, raw beets, raw cabbage, green bell peppers, and a myriad of other raw or pickled veggies! They also have nuts, seeds and fruits.
Sweet Tomatoes is very vegan and allergy friendly! They have an allergy eating guide available to all their customers. There is a little green leaf by items that are vegan! The guide also indicates which foods are soy free, and gluten free! It makes eating out much easier. In my case, I have to have the management print off a detailed list of ingredients for the soups and dressings due to my multiple allergies to: oats, all grains, wheat gluten, wheat, beans, peanuts, legumes, soy, egg yolk, milk, cayenne pepper and black pepper. In the end, I put a drizzel of olive oil on my salads because all of the dressings had something I was allergic to in them.
Sweet Tomatoes usually has 3 vegetarian soups available. When I went they had one vegan soup and two vegetarian soups. The tomato and onion vegan soup was vegan and had no soy! Yippie! There was also fresh pineapple and other fruits to chose from for dessert. If you are not allergic to oats you can enjoy the fruit cobblers too.
