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.

Found The Spot coffee shop on Trip Advisor. Liked the reviews and it was on the way. 1. Parking is an issue, well worth the hassle. 2. Location. In a rehabbed building. The neighborhood is an artistic center where young and old seem to mix very well. 3. Interior. Well laid out counter with POS stastions. cases to display a... More

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

We are from Milwaukee WI visiting friends here in Buffalo. The coffee here is the best we've found in Buffalo! I dont even want to mention the name of the coffee place that everyone seems to think is the greatest (I think of my childhood book, Horton hears a Who! when I see them) but my husband dumped his coffee...

This coffee shop exceeded my expectations for delicious coffee and baked goods. The atmosphere, including the coffee roasting next door, was much more pleasant than a chain location. I will definitely visit here again when in the area.
