Rockford Illinois Eateries

During our visit to Rockford, we were able to check out a few eateries. During our visit, we enjoyed breakfast at one of our favorites -- Rockford staple Stockholm Inn!

Stockholm Inn in Rockford, Illinois

Stockholm Inn is perfect for any Rockford itinerary. Rockford is proud of its Swedish heritage and Stockholm Inn provides the opportunity to enjoy Swedish flavors including Swedish pancakes, lingonberries, kroppkakor (Swedish potato dumplings), kaldolmar (Swedish cabbage rolls) and Swedish meatballs. For our breakfast, we all agreed on one things -- Swedish pancakes! I had mine topped with lingonberries, of course!

I also enjoyed potato pancakes. Another delicious choice! The meals were large and great for starting off a day of exploration!

While at the Stockholm Inn, visitors should take some time to enjoy the Swedish decor items throughout. I love the home look!

You will see dala horses throughout. Dala horses are traditional carved and painted horses from Sweden. I brought one home as a souvenir on my first visit to Rockford.

After breakfast, we visited the store which is home to decor items, books, gifts, food items and more from Scandinavia.

For lunch, we ate at Taco Betty's which serves up modern, inventive taco and burrito combinations. I had the mushroom mole tacos which were incredible. Loved the veggies on the side!

My daughter loved the pork and pineapple tacos! We actually went to another taco restaurant the following week and she had to have pork tacos because she loved the pork taco at Taco Betty's so much!

During Stroll on State, we tried Sisters Thai Cafe. Once again, we enjoyed great meals and appreciated the healthy amount of vegetables in our dishes!
