“OK spot on the north side of town”
Review of The Coffee Spot

The Coffee Spot
Ranked #2 of 2 Coffee & Tea in El Prado
Price range: $4 - $12
Description: Serving made to order breakfast and lunch from 6am to 3 pm every day. Gluten free and vegan dishes are available. Fresh pastries daily. Pies by the slice or special order. Very strong Taos Roasters coffee. Perfectly made espresso drinks, Two Leaves and a Bud tea, home made chai and Ghiradelli Hot Chocolate. Expensive ingredients and five star service combined with thrift shop flatware and local art to create the prefect balance for a great local hang out!

Seemed a bit overpriced for what it was. Still, it's a convenient place on the north side of town. There's parking. The atmosphere is hippy-ish and funky. A plus is that food is also served.

the people that work at the spot are generally very nice, and reasonably attentive. i love that they provide gluten-free options, and other healthy foods. and i like that they have live performances there, in such a small, intimate setting.

my main complaint is that they seem WAY over-priced. i recently paid $5 for a medium iced chai. that is like $2 more than elevation coffee charges, and they cater to a notably more upscale crowd.

i also wish the spot was opened later in the day. i guess i could say that about many places, particularly cafes.

Nice place with coffees, teas and other drinks. They make a drink of coffee with mayan chocolate that is excellent. Also have Italian sodas. Friendly, talkative staff too.

Visited from Florida and was desperate for a well-made cappuccino; they delivered! Three different visits during my vacation, great., well-crafted cappuccinos each time. And sugar coma-inducing cinnamon rolls, if you like that sort of thing. Very friendly service...
