Living in Rochester


Though you can find a smattering of Italian and Mediterranean restaurants, as well as a sushi joint or two, most of the restaurants in Rochester offer tried and true American classics. However, don't let the seeming simplicity fool you. You can find some killer bites at many of the restaurants in Rochester. For breakfast, go to the Krazy Greek Restaurant, located on East University. The Krazy Greek is known for its breakfast and often has lines that stretch out the door on weekend mornings. The Chunky Cheese Omelette, made with cheddar, muenster and colby-jack is not for the faint of heart but is oh-so good, and the perfectly fluffy and sweet French toast might make you weep. Definitely check out their daily specials, written on the chalkboard. A few blocks over on Walnut Street, you'll find Give Thanks Bakery & Cafe. This little shop, tucked away that you might easily miss it, sells pastries and baked goods so unimaginably delectable that you might believe you're in France. The almond croissant is absolutely sinful, with yeasty, light layers of pastry dough, butter and almond filling, dusted ever-so lightly with powdered sugar and sprinkled with toasted sliced almonds. Eat these gems fresh, as the staff begins baking them every morning before 6:00 a.m. Kruse and Muer on Main serves the Rochester community seafood-based meals. Customers go absolutely wild for their house bread: a baguette-length, soft roll, sprinkled with the same toppings you would find on an everything bagel. Customers recommend ordering one of the always-changing specials that reflect the freshest, most seasonal catch. At night, locals like to bop around the downtown area, either to window-shop, grab a late dinner or drinks, or hang out at a sports bar. Sports fans and young adults enjoy Mr. B's Food & Spirits, a Rochester institution, for its laid-back atmosphere, greasy comfort grub and legendary seasoned fries. Many locals also like to catch a late night movie at the Emagine Rochester Hills movie theater, located on Rochester Road. This extravagant theater features a full bar and roomy, reclining seats.


Rochester keeps its rich history alive with publicly displayed informational placards scattered throughout the city, a museum dedicated to its history and a section of the public library dedicated to local history. Settled by the Graham family in 1817, Rochester later became a village in 1869 and a city in 1967. To this day, you can still see many of the original building facades on Main Street. The Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farms takes visitors back in time to experience former life in Rochester. The farm occupies 16 acres, on which you can find original structures. A dairy barn houses the museum, and school-aged children often take field trips to its schoolhouse dressed as 19th-century students. Rochester's Paint Creek Center for the Arts is a community non-profit center located downtown that offers studio art classes to the public and exhibits local work year-round.


Everyone who lives in Rochester drives. Buses do not service the neighborhood. Neither cabs nor Uber service the neighborhood either, so if you must get a ride somewhere, and are without a car, call a cab company to have one pick you up. You'll find parking in Rochester easy to find and, in many places, free. Exceptions include metered street parking and valet parking for certain restaurants. Rochester's location provides easy access to two nearby, heavily commuted, expressways, M-59 and I-75. To get to either, simply take one of Rochester's main roads. Although Rochester tends to be very spread out, pockets of the city, including its downtown area or its outdoor mall, "The Village," provide easier walking for those looking for a stroll. The streets do not have biking lanes, and Rochester drivers don't expect to see bikers in the streets, making bicycling unsafe in the neighborhood.


The cost of living runs higher in Rochester than Detroit. For a one-bedroom in Rochester, you can expect to pay approximately $600 to $700 per month, depending on the location. A pint of beer at a local pub costs $3 to $5, and gasoline runs about 7 percent lower than the national average. If you are taking the local bus it will cost you $2.00 for a single ride.


Rochester's main shopping areas include its downtown and The Village of Rochester Hills, an outdoor shopping mall. Both contain high-end stores and specialty boutique shops as well as more everyday stores. If you find yourself downtown, check out Plain & Fancy and Legends of Time, both of which are located on Main Street. Plain & Fancy, a treasure box of a store, features beautiful figurines, one-of-a-kind jewelry and jewelry boxes, stationery, unique purses, handmade garments and so much more. Downstairs you'll find a Christmas wonderland in the basement filled with exquisite ornaments dangling from the ceiling in addition to other Christmas decor. You can buy this Christmas-themed merchandise year-round. After visiting Plain & Fancy, walk a few doors down to Legends of Time. Enter the store transports you to a world full of colorful Native American art and artifacts. Go to Legends of Time when you need to find something for those hard-to-buy people. On the other side of town, at The Village of Rochester Hills, stop into Francesca's Collections for some fun jewelry and trendy clothing garments. Kroger, Busch's, Hollywood Market, Papa Joe's, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods are the main grocery stores that service Rochester. For something a little fresher though, stop by Rochester's weekly farmers' market, located near the fire station downtown, every Saturday during the in-season months. At the market you can find everything from farm-fresh, pasture-raised eggs to seasonal corn stalks.


Rochester boasts many parks. Downtown, locals head to Rochester's Municipal Park, whose paved, hilly sidewalks make room for everyone from runners to new moms pushing strollers. Numerous picnic tables and play structures dot the park grounds, as well as a few volleyball nets, making this park an excellent destination spot for weekend family outings. The park also welcomes dogs. Other downtown parks include the Rochester Lion's Park and Rotary Park, both of which are much smaller than the Municipal Park. Outside the downtown area, the 200-acre Bloomer Park attracts athletes for its baseball diamonds, fields, trails and more. All Rochester parks are free. Every year in the fall, Rochester Municipal Park hosts Arts and Apples. The event attracts locals and those from farther away, to celebrate the apple season and enjoy an impressive selection of artwork and tasty eats.
