  • 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  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  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  We are so fortunate to have a health food store right here in Rome. Brenda and her staff are always so accommodating and helpful, not to mention they have the best cafe foods...everything from chipotle black bean burgers, organic salads, homemade soups, smoothies, sandwiches, wraps, homemade paleo cookies, pastries, half moons, kombucha and more. Thanks for always special ordering things for me, Brenda!
