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 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

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.

What a pleasant surprise. Manyunk has some great little restaurants and we never would have found Couch Tomato if not for a special offer. The atmosphere is cozy and friendly. If you are there for the first time, pull up to the front and call the number on the sign for free parking. We didn't know about it and luckily... More
