  • 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  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  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!
