  • 5 star review  stopped in to try and find some nutritional yeast. Of course she had it. She was friendly and nice to chat with and offered some of her knowledge regarding a vegan diet. I got a smoothie and it was out of this world!!! So grateful to have a store like this close by.

  • 5 star review  One of the bright lights of West Dominick St. Creative, wholesome menu, and an interesting inventory of organic, hard to find products. I went in for lunch, got into a conversation with Brenda, bought a jar of coconut oil.

  • 5 star review  Love it! Everything you need from soap to fresh produce to a healthy bean burger (which I recommend with lettuce and tomato). Helpful, friendly service. 5/5!

  • 5 star review  If she doesn't have what you are looking for she can usually get it for you, how many businesses are even willing to accommodate a customer anymore. That's why I will shop there first.

  • 5 star review  For someone who is trying to get her health back on track, make community based aquaintences and trying to become educated upon how to lead herself and others on a naturally, down to earth road, I highly reccomend others who haven't been in Brenda's to just go in there and indulge in the amostphere and everything is so convienant. If Brenda herself can't help you with something, she knows who can help. Everyone who works there are unbelievably pleasant and wholesome. One of the best businesses I've walked into locally.

  • 5 star review  When we first moved to Rome and were checking things out, I found this store. I have to tell you this is a terrific place! The food in the Café is great as well as inexpensive. They even have gluten free cupcakes and cakes you can order. Which by the way are just fabulous! Brenda is such a nice lady too!

  • 5 star review  Brenda has a total commitment to provide Rome with organic, healthy food. Great place for lunch and her husband's chocolate cookies are the best.
