Rochester’s popular coffee shop, Spot Coffee, has been ordered to close its doors by the Monroe County Health Dept. According to a sign on the door, the establishment was closed due to health code violations in connection with the NY State Sanitary Code. The state health department’s website lists several violations, including one that was deemed a “critical violation” related to food from an “unapproved source, spoiled, and adulterated on premises.” Other violations were 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 after receiving the order and is working to rectify the situation. They are cooperating with the county health department and implementing thorough cleaning and sanitation procedures while also working with pest control services. The company is committed to ensuring that their Rochester location meets and exceeds all health and safety standards.
There was no immediate word on when Spot will reopen. However, Peter Kervin, District Operations Manager for Spot Coffee, issued a statement indicating that they are taking the recent reports very seriously and appreciate the community’s understanding and patience as they work to resolve this matter.
