During all the years late DH and I lived in Torrance in So. Cal. we loved that place. We'd often meet DS and his family there. Sometimes on Sunday or Saturday, sometimes during the week.

 

Always loved their food. Sad to see them go.

Always loved all the healthy options in their buffets .... I'm also sorry they can't re-open.

From what I read, it had been bought out and money invested and great things were in the planning stages, visitor numbers were up and then the pandemic hit.  @RollTide2008

When I lived in Southern California around 40 years ago, Soup Plantation was very popular. I have also lived where Sweet Tomatoes was available. Love, love, love the food offerings at those places. Everything was always top-notch fresh!

Whatever the reason, it's always sad when a business needs to close. And I say that as a person who does not do any type of buffet eating -- with the one exception being when we traveled last year in Tanzania. With only one exception in of of the lodges, all meals were buffet.
