  • 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  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.

  • 5 star review  Friends and I get together on Thursday evenings at Brenda's for a light supper and knitting in the cafe. Brenda has welcomed our little group with enthusiasm. While there, I usually buy my organic veg for the following week. Brenda's Cafe offers a good selection of entrees for folks like me who have a few dietary restrictions. These aren't just "bark and twigs" alternatives. This is real food, done well.

  • 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.
