Work and Surf!


Finally, I think I have found a coffee shop in Buffalo where I can work and surf! I tried a few places last summer when studying for prelims - a Starbucks (too cramped), Aroma (on Elmwood, too small), and Spot on Elmwood (a bit too noisy) - and ended up spending most of my time at a library on the UB campus. And last week, a friend suggested taking a look at the Spot coffee shop at the intersection of Delaware and Chippewa. Perfect! Large place, great house brew, enough outlets for every customer with a laptop, and, free wi-fi! This might well be where I write my dissertation in "15 minutes a day!"

  • Spot Coffee shop seems like a crowded, fun place. Does it remind you of India?
    Costa Coffee, a british chain of coffee shops, has opened in Delhi. Its quite an improvement over the Baristas and Cafe Coffee Days.

  • shashank - its crowded and fun, but the similarities end there. The Coffee Days and Baristas in india are more like Starbucks. Spot is very much a local coffee shop where folks working behind the counters don't all wear the same clothes and apron...at the Spot I go to these days, there's usually a few bums hanging around the no one minds them...think Blue Sky in Athens, Georgia and you'll get the idea (btw, sadly for downtown Athens, Blue Sky couldn't compete with Starbucks and is now closed).

    So how is this Costa place an improvement?
