The Aurora, IL, newspaper, The Beacon-News recently featured the Aurora Sweet Tomatoes in a story written by freelancer Jane Donahue. Here is her story.

When an all-you-can-eat buffet delivers fresh, healthy and wholesome food options – as Sweet Tomatoes on the west side of Route 59 in Aurora does — it’s a sweet thing for area diners.

“It’s a very simple concept,” said Kevin Alvarez, general manager. “We have healthy options and you get to make the choices about what you want to have. We offer great quality for a great price.”

Since 2008, the cafeteria-style restaurant has delivered “farm fresh and made from scratch” items.

Fresh fruits and vegetables, pasta dishes, made-from-scratch soups, bakery treats, focaccias, breads and desserts all are available. The menu items are posted online and change each week, so diners can check ahead to see what’s available.

Sweet Tomatoes is part of the Garden Fresh Restaurant Corporation, headquartered in San Diego. There are 124 company-owned restaurants in 15 states, including six in Illinois.
