The Couch Tomato is an absolutely fresh and friendly venue for amazing salads and sandwiches along Main Street (at Rector) in Manayunk. I discovered it because they mailed a menu to my home (and I live up the hill in Roxborough), which is but 1 mile from the Café. Seeking fresh salads with a... read more

I suppose that having a business in Manayunk gives an opportunity to be extremely pricey! I won't do business with this place any longer. We waited an hour and .fifteen minutes for a pie and two salads while spending over $40. The food wasn't even tasty nor fulfilling. What a racket! Stupidly on my part this time but never again!...

The food here is great even though it is over priced. Their online ordering is not so great either. the App needs some work. Best to Call and order or Dine-In.

We all got pizza's - you can make your own (as it pick the toppings). The crust is good and thin. The choices are varied. The taste was good. They have a nice little outdoor area. Not much room in doors. Prices were reasonable. I would go there again - for lunch

I have been eating gluten free for years and I can tell you from personal experience that gluten free food can be awful, but this place is amazing. My wife just got a regular pizza and loved it. I am so glad I live close by and will definitely visit this place again. If you have gluten intolerance please do... More

We went on a Tuesday afternoon for their unlimited salad bar. Uninspiring, only one in our party of four partook, and he regretted it. Salad bar pizza had been sitting around for a while. The three of us that ordered from the menu got tasty, but unimaginative salads, not worth the price we paid. Waitress seemed distracted, but was prompt.... More

Just good solid food for casual eats. Love this place when near Manayunk, my old stomping grounds. Wish I could get there more!

The atmosphere was nice at the new location in West Chester. The food is another story. We got the Mediterranean platter which had some very weird flavored and over priced for what we got. The margarita pizza was bland. The crust was good but the pizza just taste weird. Skip this place.
