Wide variety of healthy ingredients, foods, teas, coffees and more. A cozy, clean cafe with tasty food and drinks. Wonderful staff and owner. Highly recommend.

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.

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.

Brenda's been on W Dominick St for almost 6 years. She's a very welcoming business owner and one can find some delicious and unusual goodies.

I worked in Rome for 10 weeks and visited Brenda's every week. Great selection, great prices and very nice staff. Loved the homemade soups, salads and granola. Great place to go for lunch!

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.
