We all need it every once in a while: comfort food. Ahhhh... Most of the time it's on days that just didn't go your way, you're exhausted, and you need a little pick me up and comfort food is just the thing. So I wanted to create a list of the best spots for comfort food in Rochester, Minnesota.

What exactly is comfort food? To me, comfort food is usually warm (but I won't totally rule out a cold dish) and is made of some delicious food that fills you up and sometimes is bad for you. But you don't care, because it's a comfort food day. Specific dishes I think of when thinking of comfort food are chili, pizza, and spaghetti.
