An unexpected find!
04 Sep 2007
Along rural US-411 in SE Tennessee, the sign annoucing a "vegetarian" cafe was an unexpected , but welcome sight. This cafe, apparently 100% Vegan, is affiliated with the nearby Seventh Day Adventist church. It is open only during lunch hours and the limited choices change daily. Both items we had were excellent--great examples of inventive Vegan preparation.
There is abundant religious material on every table and in bookcases and racks. For that reason, we were surprised when the hostess started attempting to engage us in a religious dialog. Although we quickly changed the subject, we could have done without the uncomfortable moment.

This friendly, low-key, vegetarian restaurant should not be missed if in Knoxville. The veggie burger was excellent, as was the chili and the soup (which changes daily). Beer and wine prices were extremely reasonable. It goes without saying that the ingredients are as fresh as they can get. The "downtown north" neighborhood is one that is undergoing restoration and revival, so don't be put off by its eclectic, yet at times sparsely populated, nature.

In concept, a great vegetarian restaurant

If you are a vegetarian visitor to Asheville, this is a must!
In concept, this is a great vegetarian restaurant. The menu choices and the specials are inventive and creative. The decor is calming and friendly. Freshness practically jumps off the plate. Over several years of visits, I have tried many different items, and have never been disappointed. The hempnut burger is one of my favorites. A thali special was delicious.
However, I did use the phrase "in concept..." On the down side, the prices at one time seemed very reasonable; now they seem somewhat high, and some portions have gotten noticeably smaller to the point of being an unsatisfying amount. The servers, while interesting and pleasant, are wildly variable in quality and attentiveness.

Excellent Veg and Vegan Choices

Located in downtown Knoxville on Market Square, The Tomato Head serves a wide variety of sandwiches, salads, pizzas, and daily specials -- all inventively designed with excellent ingredients. Many are Vegan or Vegetarian, but there is something for almost every taste.
The restaurant has become a fixture on Market Square; as a result, it is very popular and is often crowded, but it is a friendly crowd.
