Searching for a local breakfast place in town for the first time, taking my cue from TripAdvisor, found Spot Coffee to be withing walking distance (10-15 min.) of the Radisson Riverside Hotel. Companion and I enjoyed it so much we came back a second day to take in the unique architecture of an original Chevrolet dealership in the past -... More

Who knew! Spot gas a nice panini and wrap/sandwich menu.....so graphics a creative cup of something AND a sandwich. Service can be a touch slow for a busy lunch time but staff us really hustling to keep things moving while not giving up the custom attention to you!

Sullen staff and indifferent food (though it appears appealing). Eclectic seating - upstairs pretty noisy and dark. A good place to write a paper, apparently.

Visiting Eastman School of Music, this is always a great place to grab lunch. Split the Spicy Tuna Sandwich and Quinoa Salad. Excellent!

I needed a place to do some writing for work and meet a colleague. This place was great, coffee was good, staff very friendly, and soup is homemade! Parking is an issue you have to watch the meters or pay to park in the garage nearby. It cost me $8 to park for 5 hours in the garage versus deal... More

Spot Coffee is a nice place to stop in because it is all the way downtown on East Avenue, and there aren't many pure "coffee shops" in that area. The coffee is good, but many of the cookies and baked goods have that ominous plastic wrap around them, often indicating that they are not the freshest in the world. There... More

Spot Coffee is not just great coffee but many food options as well. Located in the entertainment district of Rochester right in the middle of the hub of activity allows for many choices in food, drink and activity. Don't think for one minute that coffee is the only reason to hang here. There are sandwiches, wraps and salads to satisfy... More

This is a cozy little coffee shop in downtown Rochester. The coffee is great, and they have food here too, though I didn't try any. There's even an upper balcony in the shop providing a great view. Spent 2 hours here reading my book, way better than your average Starbucks!!

Coffee is fantastic here. Aussies looking for a proper expresso coffee will find it here. Large cups though, order the smallest. Omelette was great too, a great breakfast.

I meet here often on business. The coffee and pastries are incredible. The atmosphere is casual with couches and chairs, tables and stand up bars.
