Sweet Tomato, Healthy Eatery & Catering
170 Forest Avenue, Glen Cove
Now that we have common hour and can dedicate a specific time daily to grab lunch with our friends, the big question is where to go? Perhaps it’s only me, but the food at Hillwood doesn’t always hit the spot. So, on a search to find good, reasonably priced food near campus, I came across “Sweet Tomato”. It is located in Glen Cove, which makes it only about 10 minutes away – just enough time to grab a bite to eat and make it in time for that 2:00 p.m. class.
The atmosphere is very casual; they actually even have artwork displayed from various high schools around the area. However, the real reason anyone would go out to eat anywhere is for the food! And, here, you won’t be disappointed. The menu is a simple one but has an interesting range of choices. It has a choice of 12 “soul warming soups”, 20 salads, and 40 wraps and paninis daily. Everything is always freshly made and tastes wonderful. The service is also great, but the best part is that few people know about it, so it is almost never packed! You can be in and out in less than an hour. As far as the pricing goes, it is very affordable. Almost everything ranges from $6 – $8. The restaurant even offers a student discount if you show your I.D., but that is only available to select items.
I would definitely recommend this place for your next lunch date. With the combination of a relaxed atmosphere, great food, and affordable pricing it’s a win-win. Enjoy!
