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.

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.

For someone who is trying to get her health back on track, make community based aquaintences and trying to become educated upon how to lead herself and others on a naturally, down to earth road, I highly reccomend others who haven't been in Brenda's to just go in there and indulge in the amostphere and everything is so convienant. If Brenda herself can't help you with something, she knows who can help. Everyone who works there are unbelievably pleasant and wholesome. One of the best businesses I've walked into locally.

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!
