Reviewed 19 December 2017

Deb, the owner, is energetic and makes her rounds of the tables to ensure all is going well. We were looking for someplace new to have lunch and stumbled on Tomato Cafe, The cafe specializes in Italian food - buffet style: pasta, pizza, salad, and soup. The ice cream bar is delicious. The ice cream is made from Coconut milk so no worries about lactose intolerance. Wait staff provides your drinks - beer and wine too! - and buses dirty dishes.

We ate here for the first time for lunch on Thursday. Friendly staff, very clean and good food. They have a small but good selection salad bar. The tomato soup was excellent. There is a pasta bar, and they had GREEN CHILI Alfredo sauce, yum. There were also steamed vegetables. There were about 10 different kinds of pizza all hot and fresh. Good crust. There is a pretty good selection of wine and beer. If you like Italian food give this place a try. We really enjoyed it.

First time eating here and I loved the service. Our waiter was very nice and came often to clear our table and made sure we had what we needed. The pizza was hot and pretty decent when it came out. The selection isn't huge but it did offer four different kinds. There was pasta and ravioli. I did not try dessert or any alcohol selection.

We've been dining at the Tomato Cafe for years-since our kids were babies. The food is ALWAYS fresh. The staff is great and the owner Debra makes it a point to talk/visit with all the tables. The vegetarian posole is my favorite. Soooo good. And the pasta, sauces and pizza are just as delicious.

The food here is just ok, but the good part is it's a buffet so there is a choice that will make everyone happy. The pre-cooked pasta was a bit overcooked and soft, but the sauce was pretty good. They do not offer plain Italian bread which is odd (just buttered-up breadsticks).
