2007-05-24 18:25:08   The perfect compliment to the Rochester Restaurant scene. The shake was amazing - food was very fresh and tasty. I will be back for sure! —TimothyKinn

2007-05-24 18:37:37   Truly unique store design and overall concept. I absolutely LOVE the food and the experience of hanging out here. I feel energized. Price is reasonable to low when considering the exceptional quality that is delivered. The only downside is that there is no bathroom in the dining area. If you have not been to Hyjea, it is a must... —JocelynRose

2007-05-26 22:48:17   Food (Cran-Apple Turkey Sandwich & bannan cream bliss shake): A+ Service (nothing like the proprietor assuring one's happiness): A+ Ambiance (small, but the attention to detail is extraordinary): A++ Parking is not great with a few spots next to the building, but the expereince is worth the inconvenience. We are lucky to have a place like this in town. —JamesDemers

The food was great, the employee's were very accomodating and friendly, and the inside of the restaurant looked absolutely amazing...not what I expected before walking in. A little small inside for seating, however, they added some tables and chairs outside. I can't wait to bring some friends for lunch next time... —JerryHill

2008-07-23 11:57:22   Where to begin, I try to surround myself with healthy choices, and only being 16 years old, in a community with high everything [prices, friends, etc.] its nice to have a retreat. That retreat would be Hyjea. The prices are still somewhat nogociable but the food, I salivate just thinking about it. I crave the "Healthy Buffalo Style" wrap on a daily basis. And I am hooked on wheat grass shots. They give me the energy and kick when I need it most. If you [reader] have not been to Hyjea it is a must. Whether you eat in or eat out, you will be in awe. Hyjea is a fine establishment at the heart of Penfield, NY. Not to mention, I am from Palm Beach, FL, and everytime I am up here to see family, which is quite frequently I make it my business to order Hyjea everyday, and the great thing is sometimes I even spoil myself with Hyjea Delivery, I mean especially with the high gas prices..you can't beat it. —MichaelPlace

2008-08-06 16:52:59   Really nice place with cool accomodating owners. Fresh, healthy fare. Not a lot of seating, but the small size probably keeps costs down. Im not into health food so the menu is not ideal, but even I found something I liked. If your a gym/health nut, you will love this place. —MrRochester
