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.

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.

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!
