Spot Coffee Saratoga

spot coffee signSpot Coffee -- a chain of "progressive continental-style cafes" -- says it expects to open its downtown Saratoga location at the Market Center development in December. (Word started circulating about it this past February.) Spot has locations in western New York, Florida, and Canada. It's also planning a location in Glens Falls. There's a press release post jump.

Spot Coffee to Open in Saratoga December 2012
Spot Coffee, a chain of progressive continental-style cafes, plan to open their 10th cafe in Saratoga Springs, NY in December, 2012. A second cafe in the region has been announced, located in Glens Falls, NY. Spot Coffee cafes serve all-day breakfast, made-to-order meals for lunch and dinner, as well as espresso and blended beverages. Each Spot is built and operated to reflect its unique community, from custom murals by local artists to hosting book clubs; becoming a part of the neighborhood is part of Spot's mission. From the Spot website:
"SPoT designs, builds and operates community- oriented cafés that provide its customers from every lifestyle and culture with the highest quality service, signature light meals and roasted in-house gourmet coffee. The current SPoT management team has been successfully operating company-owned cafés in New York State, Florida and Canada since 2004. Each SPoT café is a popular and friendly gathering place for its community where specialty coffee, upscale beverages, fresh baked goods, signature sandwiches, soups, salads and gourmet pizza, cakes, pastries and home baked goods are offered and enjoyed by its patrons in a warm, friendly and home-like environment."

I've been to the Spot Coffee in Rochester several times. It's in a renovated art-deco Chevrolet dealership that kept much of the stainless-steel exterior and some art-deco interior features. A large and visually-interesting space. While I'm suspicious of any cafe that says it has "gourmet coffee," their brewed coffee was quite good.

We'll see was brews up in Saratoga and Glens Falls.

i'll stick with Saratoga Coffee traders

Spot is a Buffalo institution, beloved by all. This is a big get for the area.

I loved going to Spot as a teenager in Buffalo!!

I have to agree that the Rochester SPoT is pretty great. I just hope they pull a good shot of espresso at this one. I have been sorely disappointed in this area's espresso offerings since Matt and Melissa stopped working at Midtown Tap & Tea.

Went to Saratoga spot last night with wife...both our coffees were luke-warm. We'll try it one more time and if they aren't HOT, we are never going back...
