The family and I went to a Sweet Tomatoes restaurant the other day while we were in Orlando doing the family vacation thing. They actually have 2 of these in Raleigh. Why not Charlotte? Another mystery. Sweet Tomatoes is an all you can eat buffet style restaurant that would appeal to anybody with families that is looking for a healthy quick meal. Sweet Tomatoes is a step above your average buffet style restaurant and I can see it appealing to families since the cost is $2.99 for 3-5 year olds which includes milk. Sweet Tomatoes started in San Diego and has grown to over 112 stores in 15 states. I wonder why Charlotte has not had some of the salad oriented concepts spring up? They would do well in several areas of town including Ballantyne and anywhere in South Charlotte.
