“Love this place. Aside from the food being great, the people are too. Had a weird incident in the parking lot where my young daughter accidentally closed her arm in my car door- ouch! I ran in to Tom's asking for ice, they didn't have any, so he broke a full frozen lasagna and gave me a chunk to use as ice. Really above and beyond. Also love the sandwiches, desserts, the fresh sliced turkey, and the sourdough bread! Customer for life here!”

“By far the freshest/best cold cuts in the area, we won't go anywhere else. The salads and produce are always so fresh. They are beyond accommodating with catering orders and the chef has a creativity level that is yet to be matched. The small town feel that is Tom the Green Grocer is also what keeps me coming back week after week.”

– Colleen D

“An absolute gem for the neighborhood!!! Quality gourmet deli, produce, bakery & service. Local & imported. Amazing seasonal plants, flowers & landscape design by Joe. As a regular customer, we are made to feel like family.”

– Willie P

“Tom and his family, chef, and staff are cheerful, polite, friendly, and accommodating. The fruits and vegetables are super fresh. The chef, Ellie, makes delicious salads, main dishes, and the best desserts. They also have a deli with great sandwiches, salads, wraps and panini. In addition, they cater, and I have saved myself endless hours of work by ordering their platters. Tom's carries some lovely gourmet foods and sauces. Oh, and the plants! Everything at Tom's is top notch. I love this little Westfield treasure. You will too!”
