The only chain on our list of faves, but it's family owned and their food is delish with great (and fast) service. Becca loves the farm house salad and the broccoli and cheese soup. The cookies are also always worth the trip.

This place is a gem that is making it's mark in the midwestern beer scene. Locally owned by Rochester Natives they have great beers and regularly collaborate with other breweries in the community. If you sit inside, you can see the huge tanks where they make the brew and if it's not busy, the beer nerds would LOVE to tell you all about their process. :)

Cafe Steam is a cool locally owned coffee place. They have several locations, each one serving great coffee. The broadway location is lively and busy. Great for working, meeting new people & people watching. The One Discovery Square location is more business focused with a great patio and wide open sunny spots to work with super high speed internet in an inspiring environment.

Swimming Beach and cute park with walking trails! A few things to note: If you’ve spent any time in Rochester you know that where you find water, you can find geese…and what they leave behind! So be careful where you walk and don’t feed them. Feeding the geese makes them think that they are welcome, but the city is trying to prevent them from becoming established at the park.
