We went here for dinner. It was busy but not packed. We were seated immediately. The menu is diverse and there is something for everyone. Our server was prompt and friendly. I had a pizza and it was delicious. The prices are very reasonable.

One of the first restaurants to open on Market Square, Tomato Head helped make it happen. Classic "hippy" food, great for vegetarians, freshly made and cheerfully served.

The tomato chipotle soup was amazing - just the right amount of spice! And I can say exactly the same of the Mexican Hot Chocolate cupcake. Great lunch spot!

I really love the food, but seems a little pricey for what you get. The atmosphere at Market Square is fantastic and this is still one of our favorite places to eat there.

Even at 2:30 this place was busy. We realized the wait was worth it. The tomato soup is delicious, and the cheddar head sandwich was great-not to mention the small pours of beers to sample was fun.

I am NOT a fan of pizza. Therefore, I always suggested somewhere else when my husband wanted to try Tomato Head. Boy was I missing out. The selection of pizzas and salads is endless! The salad ingredients were all very fresh. The salad dressings are...More

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.
