I worked in Rome for 10 weeks and visited Brenda's every week. Great selection, great prices and very nice staff. Loved the homemade soups, salads and granola. Great place to go for lunch!

Many people talk about supporting small business, and Brenda's is the place to support in central NY. Delicious, healthy, savory lunches; kombucha on tap; and hands down the best yogurt in New York State (Stoltzfus Dairy). Not to mention knowledgeable, welcoming, salt of the earth staff.

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.

Brenda's been on W Dominick St for almost 6 years. She's a very welcoming business owner and one can find some delicious and unusual goodies.

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.

Anyone that takes time to prepare a meal for you and have it waiting on your table because you have a tight schedule gets a 5+ stars. This is the selfless service you get from Brenda and her great staff. You guys are the best!
