Brenda's Natural Food Store AND Cafe' always makes me feel welcome, well fed and good about the quality of choices in the cafe' and store. The staff is sweet and helpful and Brenda is a lovely woman both inside and out. I don't know what my family would do without her family....,And isn't that what it's really all about?

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.

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.

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.

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.
