  • 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  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  Love it! Everything you need from soap to fresh produce to a healthy bean burger (which I recommend with lettuce and tomato). Helpful, friendly service. 5/5!

  • 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  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.

  • 5 star review  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.
