Living and exploring Rochester for the past *almost* twenty five years I’ve acquired my favorite go-to spots throughout the city. Our culinary and third-wave coffee scene are two things that have really blossomed into their own with a strong community of creativity and talent.
If you’re ever in the Upstate Area, take note of some of these wonderful spots. They’re unique to this city and hold so much character (and a special place in my heart) ! I picked out two places per category – though it was tough to narrow down, these are ones I’ll contentiously recommend.
