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.

I had to spend most of a day killing time, waiting for my car to be detailed at a special shop in Rochester. The guys there recommended Spot Coffee as a good place for me to wait, and drove me over. I wound up spending the day there, first having breakfast, and then hours later, lunch. In between I used... More

This seems like a place where all the Eastman kids hang out. Good place to get a cup of Joe and a plethora of dining options. The humus plate was a little salty but the fresh bread was good! Breakfast sandwich good too. Decor interesting.

Stopped by for a quick lunch and coffee. Nice place! Relaxed atmosphere, several families, college students, retired types. Food was prepared quickly and good, but not great. A good spot for a quick refreshment.
