“Good coffee shop, good service, fine food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

It doesn't matter what time of day, the food is good, as is the service. They usually have lunch and dinner specials, and the food is well worth the few bucks. Enjoy, we do!

“Bad, Bad Service at this Spires”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

Not long ago, I wrote a very good review of this restaurant. After going to Spires for the last five years; I found that I can not longer patronize this restaurant. Frankly, the food is still good; but, the service has become terrible. The servers have developed an attitude toward customers. I have had servers there criticize my attitude and one of them told me to go to hell. I spoke to the manager a couple of times, and I guess he condones what they are doing because nothing changes. If you go to this restaurant; I would suggest that you do not become too friendly with the staff or tell them anything personal. If you do decide to go; good luck.

“Best coffee shop in the South Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

Almost every day, I eat at Spires on Hawthorne Blvd in Torrance, CA. The prices very reasonable and they give you big portions. Restaurant is not fancy; however, the service is really good and fast. They have daily specials; in addition,they also have senior specials on the menu. The restaurant is open Mon - Sat 6 AM - 11 PM, and on Sun 7 AM - 11 PM. The food at this restaurant is better than any other coffee shop in the South Bay. I have been going to Spires for 5 years and I highly recommend it.
