The Couch Tomato bistro uses fresh and organic ingredients when possible, which is always an added bonus. Knowing that you are eating something that is both delicious and healthy is always a good thing.
While they are most well-known for their tasty grilled cheese and tomato bisque combo, they also offer a nice selection of sandwiches including a build-your-own option. Aristan pizza and various apps complete the lineup.

Of course, the grilled cheese is the top item to try on the menu. However, if you are seeking something a bit healthier, the Atomic Veggie is a real winner. This sandwich is stacked with freshness including sundried tomato, avocado, spinach, farmers cheese, and pesto mayo. No matter which sandwich you choose, you have to try the flavorful tomato bisque soup. There's nothing like dipping a sandwich in the perfect savory, creamy tomato soup!


Service was great here. The staff seem to enjoy their jobs and food was prepared quickly and delivered fresh.


The ambiance is nice with a spacious 2 floor layout. On nice afternoons, you can enjoy a seat on the breezy patio. Enjoy the short lived mild months!
