Hip, warm, friendly, and in the center of all that's great about downtown Rochester, Spot Coffee serves amazing brews and tasty treats. Grab a double mocha and a scone, watch the urban landscape, and revel in the upbeat mood. I would drink their coffee every day if I could. Loved the service and the young servers were very professional and patient. Spot Coffee attracts an eclectic crowd. Fun!

I like my espresso, and I like my shots pulled correctly. 4 shots is 4oz unless someone asks for ristretto. Simple things like this help a coffee shop go from good to great.

Maybe there should be a special designation for the coffee shop types of places. The Spot is a cut above Starbuck's, in my view, in that it has more atmosphere, is more relaxed. The coffee is good; pastries are good, atmosphere is relaxed. You'll find students working on projects, and a surprising number of business meetings being held.
Parking is a challenge, though quite do-able.
Prices are moderate. There is absolutely NO pressure to limit your time there.
Fun place; great location...downtown, Rochester...on the east end

I loved SPoT before the renovation, but now it looks so corporate-generic. It's really disappointing to house a coffee shop in such an iconic piece of architecture, and then make it look like Starbucks's cousin.

I really enjoy studying here. I do not have internet access at home, so i drive down to spot, grab a great cup of coffee and use their free wireless access ti do my research. The staff are above and beyond friendly, and the snacks are tasty. The location is in a cool part of town, and that atmosphere is fantastic. Food isnt bad. They serve breakfast burritos until close.
