We began our day by stopping the the Spot Coffee. There are many selections on the menu. We had egg wraps. It was very large and we were full. It was very good and inexpensive.

So much to love about this coffee shop. In the heart of the Elmwood district, this shop highlights the buildings historical roots. They have a great selection of home made and local sourced baked goods and foods. Their coffee Espresso drinks are GREAT! Friendly, local service, laid back, but classic, trendy too!

We are regulars at Spot Coffee whenever we are in Buffalo. The service is good, the coffee is the best on offer on Elmwood and they offer their patrons free wifi. Spot also offers a nice choice of breakfast dishes, cakes and pastries and wood fire pizzas. Spot is a great place to cozy up inside during the cooler months... More

We were visiting and had coffee at three different shops in the area. This was the best tasting coffee. The location is on the busy Elmwood Ave and parking is tight, but can be found. Popular with locals. Cozy indoor seating and tables under awning outdoors. Very large. Great service.

You can actually sit down with friends and enjoy great coffee and conversation. The service staff is very friendly and quick. It is large enough to enable you to find a place to sit and enjoy a few restful moments.

Came here after dinner after 10:30PM. Virtually empty at that time, however a very big size space for a coffee place. It was good to relax at and just have a good cup of coffee.

Cute little coffee spot! If I lived in Buffalo, I'm sure I'd be a regular here. Loved the environment and coffee options and snack options
