I’ve been eating at Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes since opening day in Mission Valley 35 years ago. I have never been sick a day in that time, with your salad bar as my only pharmacy. My favorite creation 1-2 times a week is to start with bed of spinach, adding all the healthy veggies, Garlic dressing, then Joan’s Broccoli on top. I stop at soup station for the Chicken noodle pieces, Chili or a creamy soup like Chowder, pizza and a sweet potato. The fun begins. After I eat the top off the salad, I break up the chicken pieces on top of it, then pour the chili or cream soup on top, chop it up and have a delicious creation which is 100% nutritious.


Gerald Monday, May 12, 2014 at 9:22 pm

Perhaps Sweet Tomatoes can try the middle eastern type of salads and pita breads also.
This idea will add to their current menu.


Raj Krishnan Monday, May 19, 2014 at 6:03 pm

I went to the Katy Freeway, Houston, TX. location with our family While the menu promised 3 Vegetarian soups, there was only one in the restaurant. That was my first problem. When asked why, the store manager said that sometimes they have too much leftovers from previous weeks. So, during transition, you get any combination of soups from the menu. Aren’t the soups made from scratch every day? What about leftovers? Thanks. Raj.


admin Tuesday, May 20, 2014 at 8:40 am

Hi Raj – Since demand often varies, our menu offerings occasionally differ. We recommend calling your local location ahead of time if you’re looking forward to enjoying a specific item to ensure it is on the list.


Donna Barkley Monday, May 19, 2014 at 7:15 pm

I love your onion soup and mushroom soup! I think it would be way cool to combine them? and served it at least once a week! My friends also love them but one or the other causes problems? I’m thinking the combination might neutralize the effects? I tried a couple times? It was good but I’m sure ya’ll could do much better?


Christine Kwak Tuesday, May 20, 2014 at 12:33 am

Hi! I was wondering how many entries you can submit? Thank you so much! I’m really excited about this! :)


admin Tuesday, May 20, 2014 at 8:36 am

Hi Christine – You can submit once every 24 hour period.


Sophia Sunday, June 1, 2014 at 9:54 am

Hi souplantation!
I entered the contest yesterday via Instagram (@sophiaalbanna) but don’t see my picture under the recent entries after I liked the FB page and went to the link that was commented. Was my entry submitted? What else do I need to do?

thank you so much!

admin Monday, June 2, 2014 at 9:15 am

admin Wednesday, June 4, 2014 at 8:43 am

Who won?!?!??! The anticipation is killing me!


admin Thursday, June 26, 2014 at 9:15 am

Hi Edward – The winners have all been contacted and we’ll release their winning recipes soon!


Maury Roth Tuesday, July 8, 2014 at 3:24 pm

Your website sucks. No prices. Confusing presentation of (limited) menu information. I ‘joined’ the veg club but it doesn’t way what I get or what comes next or send anything to my email account.


admin Tuesday, July 8, 2014 at 4:11 pm

Hi Maury – We are sorry for your poor experience. We do not currently include prices on our site as they differ slightly based on location and time of day, so please feel free to call the location you are thinking of visiting ahead of time to get accurate information. But, if you click into the location page you plan on visiting, there is a full list of menu items that will be available :)

Please also add to your email address book to ensure that our emails are not sent to your spam filter. Hope this all helps!

My kids and I eat at Sweet Tomatoes all the time. I just wish there were more special vegan options on a regular basis. If you’d just leave the cheese and dairy out of some soups and salads we’d have so many more options to choose from.


admin Thursday, August 7, 2014 at 9:25 am

Thank you for your feedback. We are doing our best to add more vegan options to our menu. Please also check our new featured vegan options for August!


Gordon Schassberger Sunday, August 24, 2014 at 11:21 am

I live in Port Saint Lucie, Florida, just north of Stuart. Stuart, Florida would be a wonderful spot to have a Sweet Tomatoes restaurant. A lot of traffic travels US1 there every single day. My friends and I just love Sweet Tomatoes but, the closest one to where we live is in Palm Beach which is a very long distance from here so, we don’t get to go as often as we would like. So, please could you put a restaurant in Stuart for us? Soon? Thank you.


Elaine Sunday, September 7, 2014 at 6:54 pm

Our family likes to go to Sweet Tomatoes regularly. However, we were very disappointed to see peanuts on your menu this month. My son is severely allergic to peanuts and it is a danger for him to be in a restaurant environment where there is a high risk of cross contamination. Please consider removing peanuts from your menu in the future


admin Monday, September 8, 2014 at 9:07 am

Thank you for your feedback, Elaine. We always try and provide options to please the different tastes and dietary restrictions for each of our guests and appreciate all of your input.


Bert A. Coffman Thursday, September 11, 2014 at 7:41 pm

I been a member of Sweet tomatoes since you arrived in Vancouver.
It’s my favorite location
Comments: Chicken soup is very good, but the chicken vanishes and only leaves a boring bowl of flavored water. This is a NEGATIVE empty moment. Some of the other soups reflect flavored water with contents VOID. The ones that are very popular only have very little content with only a hint of the desired soup content. The bowl’s are small. The entering salads, many times are empty and the choices remain vacant. The girls have to keep them full, if not, you might as well
void this process. In other words, the foods have to be full because that is what brings business
reality to the stomach and responsibilty to each of the emplyees. I will continue to eat from the
restaurant, but desire to be WOW! instead of less than normal quality. I wish you the best and
continue with incressed quality. A real treat would be to return the drinks to the nromal price or reduce to 1/2 the present price. When the price goes up, quality should go with it and especialy
with the MAIN Vegetables.

Thank you for sharing your feedback, Bert. If you ever notice an item that is not refilled or prepared properly, notify the manager on duty immediately. That way, you be sure to enjoy a serving of every menu item you enjoy most :)


Gina Monday, September 29, 2014 at 6:42 am

Why are the dates here all in September in this email I got today? There are only 2 days left of September ..including today.


admin Monday, September 29, 2014 at 8:52 am

Hi Gina – Can we help you find any information?


Tania Pardo Monday, September 29, 2014 at 1:43 pm

PLEASE, PLEASE bring back Jícama!!!


Jessie Fleishman Thursday, October 16, 2014 at 11:54 am

Would love to see Blue Cheese or Gorgonzola crumbles, remember you having Blue Cheese years ago. Thanks.


admin Thursday, October 16, 2014 at 12:34 pm
