The popular coffee shop on East Avenue in Rochester, Spot Coffee, is currently closed due to a health inspection. On February 9th, the Monroe County Health Dept. issued an order, ordering the establishment closed and all food operations to cease in connection with the NY State Sanitary Code. A sign on the door states that the state health department’s website lists several health code violations, including one called a “critical violation” related to food from an “unapproved source, spoiled, adulterated on premises.” Other violations are related to issues such as food not being protected from potential sources of contamination and not having effective measures to control rodents and insects from entering the restaurant.
Spot Coffee took immediate action to address the issue and is working hard to rectify the situation so that it can reopen soon. The company is cooperating with the county health department and implementing thorough cleaning and sanitation procedures as well as working with pest control services. Peter Kervin, District Operations Manager for Spot Coffee stated that they take these recent reports very seriously and are committed to ensuring that Spot Rochester meets and exceeds all health and safety standards. They appreciate the community’s understanding and patience as they work to resolve this matter. Currently there is no word on when Spot will reopen but customers can visit their other locations in the meantime while waiting for them back at their East Ave location.
