The coffee is great but the cups are small for their size and pricing. Nice little show overall. I sure I'll stop back in again if in the area.

Best Thai Ice Tea I have ever had! Small, newer coffee shop on the Avenue in Hampden. Has a room in the back that seems to be a good place to sit for a spell.

I've had the quiche and almond croissants that were both delicious. The house chai latte is fantastic and there's wifi. Great location on the avenue in a neighborhood setting. I like spro.

I'm very impressed with this place. Lots of coffee options with a very friendly staff to help pick the right drink for you. They grind the beans for every drink and will brew the coffee a bunch of different ways. I tried a house coffee, cappuccino, latte, and a mocha, all were fantastic. Not much of a breakfast spot, mainly... More

I live in this neighborhood and enjoy coffee and pastries here once in a while. The latte is great and they do Thai iced tea in the summer. I also recommend the Mexican host chocolate, which is quite spicy sometimes. The pastries are generally good, but I like the croissants best. Spro is centrally located on the Avenue. It's not...

I don't mind the long wait for coffee because I am expecting more than a Starbucks tar flavored drip. Staff seemed a bit overwhelmed when I was there. It's nice to sit in the back away from the noise and lines of people, but there is only room for 8. Make it a stop along your way while shopping and... More

If you want to taste the best capuccino in Baltimore, this is the place! I would suggest also the chocolate croissant! Ummmm

I don't get the hype. This is overrated and overpriced coffee. Minimal seating and not too friendly staff...

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2013

It has a reputation of being the best coffeehouse in Baltimore but on the day of my visit I had an average regular espresso and average decaf Americano that did not inspire me to return. One must take into account that these things depend upon the barista, the espresso machine settings, and the weather, so it is largely a matter... More

I stopped here on a whim while waiting to meet a friend for dinner. What a treat! My hot tea was delicious, and I was extremely impressed by the staff knowledge of the tea varieties and the fact that they steeped it for me! Spro's location is adorable, and easily convenient to all of the cute little shops of Hamden.... More
