    The g-free pizza is SO good. My kids couldn't tell it was gluten-free. They take special care to cook it separately and not use pizza tools that could be cross-contaminated. Our pizza came with a disposable cutter - so awesome.

    The Couch Tomato Cafe is by far my favorite place to eat in West Chester! I go at least once a week! There is a wide variety of everything from pizzas, salads, sandwiches, and soups. The menu is also very accommodating to gluten free and vegetarian eaters. I love that every ingredient is fresh and that they share the farm where it came from. All of the employees are very friendly and helpful if I ever have any questions. The cafe itself is kept very clean and organized, definitely a great dining atmosphere. Overall, I love The Couch Tomato Cafe and would recommend it to anyone!

    We tried the Couch Tomato for the first time on Sunday and we loved it! We ordered the cheese board, which had a nice variety of cheese and accompaniments. Then we ordered 2 of their flat bread pizzas...the Margherita was delicious and my favorite. They had a nice wine and beer list. They do offer free valet parking for the bistro, which is nice because parking in Manyuank can be tricky. We will definitely be back for more!

    be careful if you are a celiac! We went there last night before a lacrosse tournament and my daughter ordered the cobb salad. We had no problems last year but she got glutened last night and is missing today's tournament games!

    The Couch Tomato is a great place to grab lunch or dinner! Every time I go I try to get something new. It is so hard to choose from all the delicious options on the menu! So far I have tried all of the seasonal menu items, all were so good. Their Gluten Free bread is AMAZING, the best I have had. The gluten0free pizza crust is also great. The iconic grilled cheese and tomato soup combo is to die for. I highly recommend that with gluten-free bread. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating.

    The Food Pyramid Salad is one of the best salads I've ever had. Fresh, healthy and delicious ingredients makes this a terrific salad. We order it at the Couch Tomato at least a couple times a month. Whether eating in and enjoying the great atmosphere, or taking out on the go, the Couch Tomato never disappoints!

    The Couch Tomato is definitely one of the freshest, most delicious restaurants in the town of West Chester. I am a huge fan of their salads and soup! They other great options, like sandwiches and pizzas, which I am eager to return and try! Not too pricey, and if you go on a nice day this Spring, they have an outside deck upstairs. I recommend you try it out!

    Whenever I go to Couch Tomato I order the kickin chicken! It has cheddar cheese, grilled chicken, lettuce, avocado, and a chipotle mayo sauce. You can get the sandwich either regular or grilled, I always get it grilled. It is extremely melty and the chipotle mayo adds an extra kick to the sandwich! I have been to Couch Tomato numerous times even though I have only lived in West Chester for a few months. It is always reliable and they are always at the counter ready with a warm welcome/welcome back. It is definitely worth your money and time to eat at Couch Tomato. The food and the atmosphere are second to none!

    The Couch Tomato is a great place for anyone with food sensitivities. They serve a wide variety of vegetarian options. I highly recommend the salads or the vegetarian chili.

    I love eating at Couch Tomato! Not only are the employees welcoming, but the atmosphere is, too. The food is always healthy and delicious. I try different things each time I go, but my absolute favorite is the seasonal special right now: roasted seasonal vegetables, fresh mozzarella, spinach, pesto mayo sandwich. If you are in West Chester, you check it out!

    This is my absolute favorite salad place, ever. I love the Cobb salad, or the Food Pyramid salad. The light balsamic dressing is delicious and they have very tasty rolls. They always prepare the order very quickly if you are picking up and deliver in under an hour. Sometimes they will miss an ingredient so its a good idea to check your order when you pick it up to make sure nothing is missing. I enjoy the pizza when it is loaded with veggies, especially the one with artichokes.

    My boyfriend and I order from couch tomato almost every weekend. The food is always fresh and so delicious. We love the gluten free sandwiches as well as the gluten free pizzas. The tomato soup is my absolute favorite, I can eat bowls of it! The only thing I'd say, is to be extra clear when ordering on the phone, I've had a few instances where my order is missing something (sandwich missing tomatoes) or something got mixed up (regular pizza crust instead of wheat crust). But either way, it always ends up delicious! They always ask if anyone within the order has a gluten allergy, and are extremely careful if that is the case. Love this place!

    GF pizza had a great taste. Unfortunately it was not crisp at all. Mushy even-on the one side. I will try again sometime. My husband loved his BLT on foccacia. We will be back. One visit is not enough for a valid experience. I have a wheat allergy.

    This is one of the places in town I consistently get take out from. I am a big fan of the Holy Chipotle salad, and I have also enjoyed their Southwest BBQ salad, and some of their delicious pizza. The curbside pickup option is a great way to get a healthy takeout meal without having to ever leave your car. I am also a big fan of how much attention they pay to dietary restrictions. I myself have a nut allergy and have seen the special care they take when crafting my salads. One time I neglected to mention my allergy and my salad had a piece of Walnut in it, luckily I caught it and brought it to their attention. The girl working was overly apologetic and built me a fresh new salad, with all brand new ingredients from the fridge and assured me that the chef had put on new gloves and everything. She also encouraged me to always mention my allergy so they can take special care to ensure my salad is not accidentally contaminated. They handled it extremely well and have kept me coming back for more.

    Couch Tomato is my go-to restaurant for salads, sandwiches, and pizzas. I am gluten and dairy free, so finding places that can accommodate both are tricky! Their food is made to order and sensitive to these dietary restrictions (in addition to being delicious). My favorites are the gluten free pizzas, Dirty Bird sandwich, and What About Cobb salad. This is a place for everyone. I celebrated my birthday dinner there and frequently visit with co-workers, family and friends. My young nieces love sitting on the upstairs terrace. The staff is always friendly and polite. An all around great dining experience!

    Very cute place, I LOVE the rooftop when it's nice out. I never leave hungry, they have tons of options, and it is generally always healthy. It is a great place if you are looking for something quick and easy like a salad, wrap, or specialty pizza. My only complaint is the salads are priced oddly...the ones without meat and the ones with meat are always right around the same price, so if you are adding meat to a non-meat salad it gets expensive quickly.

    Great place for a quick, healthy lunch! They offer a great delivery service in the West Chester area that is super convenient -- come here often with friends with gluten allergies. They offer a lot of flexibility for those that need to avoid gluten. My favorite items here are the salads and wraps -- cobb and southwest bbq are really good, as well as the calorie cruncher pizza. Their homemade apple chips are a must get!

    My friends and I love Couch Tomato! Great food, great service, reasonable prices, and a great atmosphere (especially when the rooftop is open!!). I have tried various pizzas, salads, sandwiches, and soups and they have all been outstanding in taste and serving size. The sodas are even great and they are pure sugar cane. In a college town, fresh food may be hard to come by, but Couch Tomato is worth the trip to get a great, healthy meal. The best salad is the Food Pyramid Salad, although I also love making my own with numerous ingredients! A must see place in WC!

    Couch Tomato is by far one of my favorite restaurants in West Chester. It is extremely fresh and I have yet to have tried something I did not like. My favorite item menu is the Waldorf Salad. The menu has so many options and even allows for a create your own sandwich, salad, or pizza. As the weather starts to get nice they even have a rooftop deck to eat out on. The deck is by far my favorite aspect of this restaurant. It is a great place to crack open a bottle of wine, since it's BYOB, enjoy great laughs with friends while overlooking the beautiful town of West Chester.

    I have been to The Couch Tomato Cafe a few times and have never left disappointed. There are many various options in regards to salads, pizzas and sandwiches. All of the food that is served is of high quality and satisfying. Typically when I go, I choose to build my own sandwich. However, many of my friends have ordered their soups and salads and raved about how delicious they were. I highly recommend this restaurant for not only its satisfying food and reasonable prices, but also for its superb customer service. P.S. If the weather is nice, try eating on their deck!

Thanks Couch Tomato! I've indicated this is a Celiac-friendly place, but if you have CD, you need to determine that for yourself. They are very conscious of cross-contamination.

    First time here in November for lunch - what a pleasant surprise! My daughter loves the Kickin' Chicken sandwich, and I enjoyed the Club sandwich. Very fresh, super tasty, HUGE sandwiches (had to bring half home!). Will definitely be back and have recommended to others already. What a great fun place - loved the decor, too! Happy this place is in West Chester!
