Have been here twice during my stay at Knoxville. Both times for a weekend brunch. Good menu options and many eggs and sandwich choices. My favorite though was their breakfast bowl. Compact and delicious! They serve fresh juices too.

Always thrilled when I can find delicious food that has gluten and dairy free options. I ordered the best pizza, and my mom enjoyed the cheddar head sandwich. My server Heather was great in identifying menu items that couldn’t be accommodated, and what could. I...More

We stopped there at the end of the lunch rush and waited a considerable amount of time to get service. While we were seated quickly on the patio, service took forever, and my small turkey sandwich redefines the word SMALL. High priced too. The only...More

Fun place to grab a unique pizza, place was a little loud, but they have lots of fun options, and your standard ones of course.

I stopped in for lunch. I ordered a large sandwich which was close to $10. Well I would hate to see the small! had to have been one of the smallest large sandwich's I've ever seen. Not worth the money spent.

We believe less processed food tastes better. Not only does it taste better, it's much healthier too. You'll notice this difference in our house made dressings and handcrafted pizzas, as well as in our colorful salads and sandwiches. Fresh produce from East Tennessee farmers like Hines Valley Farm, Mountain Meadows Farm and Colvin Family Farm is featured in our daily specials. Well known for our vegan and vegetarian dishes, our menu has plenty for the carnivore. All of our proteins are nitrate/nitrite free, all natural and antibiotic free. Our house made lamb sausage is cooked in small batches to ensure freshness. Our sister bakery, Flour Head Bakery, prepares all of the Tomato Head's desserts and breads (including gluten free!) Each morning. By using unbleached and unbromated King Arthur Flour, we create healthier and better tasting pizza dough and sandwich breads. We also can easily accommodate your dietary needs. Whether it's a nut allergy, a preference for vegan fare or a gluten sensitivity, our staff will craft a dish to suit your tastes.
