Oh…Sweet Tomatoes, long a cheery meeting spot for families to enjoy fresh, buffet-style dining is closing permanently. That includes locations in San Jose, Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Fremont, and Pleasanton. Salad bars and buffets have been hit hard by FDA recommendations during the Coronavirus crisis.
While I was taking my selfie in the empty parking lot, a young guy drove up hoping to use his “free meal” certificate. He said that he’d been a customer since he was a little kid. What a sad situation this pandemic has caused. Hopefully, supporting our local businesses will help them to survive. –Jona
