This place is wonderful. It may be hard to get in, we waited about 40 minutes to be seated. But, if you are with people who have diet restrictions such as gluten-free, it’s well worth the wait. The food is delicious. We ordered the gluten-free...More

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!

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.
