They don’t take reservations but they do accept call aheads so put your name on the list (evenings are very busy). Service was great and so was the food! Salads were jam packed with toppings and pizza was delicious. Kid friendly and have outdoor seating!

We were visiting my wife's sister and she suggested we eat here. The pizza was some of the best I have ever had and the breadsticks were awesome. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

Excellent food with lots of choice! Attentive service. Great for vegetarians. The Lucy and the Vegan were great sandwiches. The vegan carrot cupcake was good though the icing was a little too sweet. Interesting beverage choices.

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.
