A coffee shop on East Avenue in Rochester was temporarily closed by the Monroe County Health Dept. following a health code violation issued on Feb. 9. The state health department’s website lists several violations, including a “critical violation” related to food from an “unapproved source, spoiled, adulterated on premises.” Other violations included issues with food not being protected from potential sources of contamination and inadequate measures to control rodents and insects.
Spot Coffee posted a sign on their door over the weekend indicating that they were closed temporarily due to the order from the county health dept. A statement provided to WXXI News by Peter Kervin, District Operations Manager for Spot Coffee, stated that the company takes the recent reports very seriously and took immediate action upon learning of the complaints and inspection findings. Spot Coffee is fully cooperating with the county health department and implementing thorough cleaning and sanitation procedures, as well as working with pest control services.
Kervin said that Spot Coffee is committed to ensuring that their Rochester location meets and exceeds all health and safety standards. They appreciate the community’s understanding and patience as they work to resolve this matter promptly. No immediate word was given on when Spot will reopen.
