This building is one of Buffalo's Architectural Buildings. The Atrium Lobby Floor and the two Cast Iron Staircases are beautiful. In addition there are six to seven equally significant buildings within a two block radius of the Elliott Square Building , plus the Baseball Park.

Inside you will find a mini food court. We shared a bowl of hot mash potatoes topped with roast beef and gravy for less than $8. There's a taco place too and a juice counter. Worth a look and a taste.

We stopped in during a self-guided walking tour of Buffalo ("Buffalo on Foot" pamphlet available for free from the inn where we stayed). There is a large public space you can walk around to enjoy the architecture.
