For a truly local experience, take a walk through downtown Sheboygan Falls to Bread & Bean Eatery, just three blocks from The Rochester Inn. This cozy neighborhood favorite was voted one of the “Best of Sheboygan County” for the past four years. The pretzel-crusted walleye, available for Friday dinner, is not to be missed!
