  • 5 star review  Stopped here today while in the area. What a great find. I have been coming to rome for over a year now once a month for work and just not eating since it is all fast food joints. Today i was starving so i looked through my GPS for somewhere to eat and came across this place. This place was perfect. Got the black bean burger salad with kraut. It was fantastic and colorful. Perfect for a dreary January day to cheer me up. The woman at the cafe was very helpful since i am dealing with multiple food sensitivities. She knew what was in everything and the few things she didn't know she checked the lables which was much appreciated.

  • 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.
