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.

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!

I really adore this store and the ppl who work in there, they are always very nice and want to talk to you and smile. Every time I shop there I go home and tell my family to stop in and support. Places like this make your day♡♡♡♡

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.

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.
