Good coffee

I've had the quiche and almond croissants that were both delicious. The house chai latte is fantastic and there's wifi. Great location on the avenue in a neighborhood setting. I like spro.

I'm very impressed with this place. Lots of coffee options with a very friendly staff to help pick the right drink for you. They grind the beans for every drink and will brew the coffee a bunch of different ways. I tried a house coffee, cappuccino, latte, and a mocha, all were fantastic. Not much of a breakfast spot, mainly... More

I live in this neighborhood and enjoy coffee and pastries here once in a while. The latte is great and they do Thai iced tea in the summer. I also recommend the Mexican host chocolate, which is quite spicy sometimes. The pastries are generally good, but I like the croissants best. Spro is centrally located on the Avenue. It's not...

I don't mind the long wait for coffee because I am expecting more than a Starbucks tar flavored drip. Staff seemed a bit overwhelmed when I was there. It's nice to sit in the back away from the noise and lines of people, but there is only room for 8. Make it a stop along your way while shopping and... More

If you want to taste the best capuccino in Baltimore, this is the place! I would suggest also the chocolate croissant! Ummmm

I don't get the hype. This is overrated and overpriced coffee. Minimal seating and not too friendly staff...

It has a reputation of being the best coffeehouse in Baltimore but on the day of my visit I had an average regular espresso and average decaf Americano that did not inspire me to return. One must take into account that these things depend upon the barista, the espresso machine settings, and the weather, so it is largely a matter... More

I stopped here on a whim while waiting to meet a friend for dinner. What a treat! My hot tea was delicious, and I was extremely impressed by the staff knowledge of the tea varieties and the fact that they steeped it for me! Spro's location is adorable, and easily convenient to all of the cute little shops of Hamden.... More

This tiny coffee house on the Avenue in Hamden has a couple of tables, a few dynamite pastries (try the nutella hazelnut scone, the pain au chocolat or the tender, tasty raisin bun) and a big menu of coffee your way. For a takeaway cup while strolling through the nearby shops or a long talk over a tiny espresso, it's... More

What a great place for coffee! Located in the middle of everything on 36th street in Hampden, Spro is exactly what you want and expect a coffee house to be. It's small with a few tables populated by easy going people looking to relax and sip some coffee. Spro has a ton of drink options to choose from, ranging from... More
