Perfect for dining with kids. It's not too quiet and it's busy, but you can still get amazing food. We love heading up to the rooftop terrace and enjoying our meal with the sights & sounds of downtown West Chester. The salads are HUGE! :)

This was our second visit to Couch Tomato Café in 18 months. The food was still excellent quality and the service was pleasant. Being an environmentalist the experience was tarnished as the soup came out in plastic takeout containers and all flatware was plastic. Come...More

I've lived in West Chester since 1980. I wouldn't use Couch Tomato. Try Brother's Pizza or consider Wawa a great PA chain for hoagies and sandwiches. If you're at Widener U and want a little fancier consider... More
