Where to Find Cold-Weather Comfort Food in Manayunk

Old Man Winter has finally arrived at The Isle! Now that the holiday fun has died down and the new year is underway, the cold weather may have you feeling less than cheerful. One of the best antidotes to that winter gloom is a tasty treat; just like your mom’s chicken noodle soup or your favorite chili recipe have always been your go-to on chilly, snowy days, classic comfort foods especially hit the spot when the weather turns cold!

Lucky for you, there are a number of restaurants near your The Isle apartment specializing in comfort food—so you can get the warm and cozy feeling of a homecooked meal without having to ever turn on the stove! One of the local Manayunk favorites is Couch Tomato Café. Located just one block from your The Isle apartment, Couch Tomato Café’s very name tells you all you need to know!

The casual and comfy establishment features a laidback, lounge-type vibe, perfect for chowing down on some comfort food on a chilly day. The café specializes in three things: fresh, local and organic. Its menu includes craft salads, sandwiches, artisan pizzas and homemade soups, which will be sure to hit the spot as the flakes start falling. Consistently ranked among the “Best Of” local eateries, Couch Tomato Café doesn’t only offer dishes that will have you feeling warm and toasty—they’ll also satisfy you without all of the guilt that usually comes with high-calorie comfort food! Many of its menu items are vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free, offering options for those looking to watch their waist lines as they hibernate in the winter. Couch Tomato Café also features an upstairs Bistro that has a more upscale atmosphere, perfect for a chilly date night out on the town.

It can be easy to fall prey to the winter doldrums, but at Couch Tomato Café, The Isle residents can warm up and wind down.
