2007-10-23 09:22:03   (Park Ave location) I went here on 10/20/07 and the WiFi worked well. I had some raspberry-chocolate pastry thing that was awesome, too. I do wish it was a little bigger inside, but oh well. —BadFish

2008-01-02 23:46:52   Sometimes the coffee is amazing and other times it tastes as if it's been sitting for a while. Best to ask how fresh the brew is. I love their Jamaican Me Nuts flavored and the Costa Rican is wonderful. Fantastic desserts. —RochesterRed

2008-02-17 11:33:17   Park Ave Location - So my husband and I have gone here about three times now, and each time our hot coffee drinks have not blown us away. However, one time my husband got the Mocha Frapp and that was really good. Still, free WiFi, nice atmosphere, friendly workers...I'll go there again, for sure. —DianaRodz

They even brought a special type of tea onto the menu after several requests. The coffee is amazing and super caffeinated, my favorite being the Jamaican flavor. Never tried their fancier drinks or food though but worth checking out for sure. Also noteworthy is their fully stocked dessert case which is soo tempting every time I visit. If you have trouble finding it, it's right near the part of Park Ave where Jines and Chester Cab are. —JaimeTe

2008-03-20 12:17:04   Mill St. Location — the women here make the best cappuccinos in the city! —ErinDwyer

2008-07-19 20:28:20   This place makes the only good latte in town. No one else is trained, or cares, or has ever had one before apparently. They used to use Caffe Vita coffee out of Seattle, which is amazing, and now roast their own and it's pretty darn good. I really only go to the Park Ave location and my latte is perfect probably 90% of the time. The only thing they occasionally get wrong is the temperature, but otherwise it's always great. Skip Starbucks.. skip Spot... skip Finger Lakes Coffee Roasters if you're interested in a great coffee experience. —DavidGottfried

2009-03-30 13:27:30   worst red velvet cake i have ever, ever had. 1. Not red. 2. Layers of chocolate frosting?! wtf? 3. regular white buttercream on outside, neither the traditional flour cooked or the common cream cheese frosting 4. Even as a mislabed chocolate cake, it was dry and not chocolaty. I've heard they've again, switched bakeries. Lets hope not for a repeat of this offense. —TheEnigmaFacade

2009-04-04 20:05:19   I've visited 2 of the locations for coffee recently. Their coffee is the richest tasting "regular" coffee I've ever had. And I do drink A LOT of coffee! —CaptainKirk

2011-02-09 13:01:31   The Mill Street location appears to be closed due to a change in management. —BatGuano

2011-02-09 14:33:15   [WWW]D&C reports that all the locations are closed. —DamianKumor

2011-03-07 17:10:08   My girlfriend worked there until they closed. About 2 years ago, there was a change in management, and apparently they had some money problems. There are rumors going around that another coffee shop might be moving into their old locations. —jabyrd3

2011-04-11 18:27:11   According to the [WWW]D&C, Boulder Coffee has purchased the assets of Spin Caffe and plan to reopen two locations. Date unknown yet —PeteB

2011-04-11 18:51:13   One of the two would be Park Ave, there is a "Boulder coming soon" sign in the window. —DottieHoffmann

2011-04-12 12:47:31   The Mill Street location is being renovated for reopening as we speak. There is no signage stating what the name of the new place will be, though. I did get a chance to speak with the new owner and he reports that within 3 weeks there should be coffee in the Old Button Factory again. —BatGuano
