I love the atmosphere here. It's so cozy and great for a fall day. I went with my family, and I'm pretty adventurous, and they aren't, and there was something for everyone! I'm excited to come back and try more. It bugged me a little that our server wasn't more attentive.

We sat in the bistro area on the upper level for lunch. Service was borderline dreadful but I won't take points off for that because it wasn't the servers fault. There was one server working the floor (i.e., seating customers, bringing water & menus, taking orders, serving drinks and food orders, clearing the tables) - he did the best he... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Manayunk. I always take friends here when I visit. The staff is knowledgeable about dietary restrictions - they're vegan and gluten free friendly - they have great house made sangria - and the food is delicious!

In fact, we enjoyed it so much that we ordered an entire pie in the evening. They were very busy that night and delivery was over an hour, so we jumped in the car... More

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
