  • 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  Stopped here today while in the area. What a great find. I have been coming to rome for over a year now once a month for work and just not eating since it is all fast food joints. Today i was starving so i looked through my GPS for somewhere to eat and came across this place. This place was perfect. Got the black bean burger salad with kraut. It was fantastic and colorful. Perfect for a dreary January day to cheer me up. The woman at the cafe was very helpful since i am dealing with multiple food sensitivities. She knew what was in everything and the few things she didn't know she checked the lables which was much appreciated.
