I moved back into the area after some time away and remembered getting salads at The Couch Tomato in college. Was pleased to see them thriving with even more to offer-- and more pleased to see that the reality exceeded my delicious memories! The Couch Tomato is a go-to for us, especially as I am gluten intolerant. In fact, after... More

Absolutely love their margarita pizza. Definitely a great place for lunch that's not too expensive and a friendly staff. My dad and I always stop here as we bike the schuylkill river trail. Definitely check it out!

We really enjoyed our visit to the Couch Tomato Cafe! I like that there are gluten free options, though I hope they add more options to the appetizers menu. There was an air conditioner pipe above our table that was leaking slightly, we left feedback at the restaurant notifying them. Our waitress took a long time to take our order... More

This is an amazing cafe with great food, excellent service and great gluten-free options. The flatbread pizzas are very unique and are a must try. Can't go wrong with this restaurant.

I was really looking forward to eating here, but must admit I was slightly disappointed. I went with my two children (10 and 14). We ate on the upper level, which provided a great view overlooking Main Street. One word of caution - it is very loud when the bistro gets crowded. Second, after I paid $10 to park, I... More
