In the historic Susan B. Anthony neighborhood stands 1872 Cafe.
It was here, in this neighborhood, that Susan. B. Anthony lived and fought for the right for woman to vote. And it was here, near the site where 1872 Cafe now stands, that Susan B. Anthony voted illegally on November 5, 1872. If you can't tell, Rochester's roots run deep.
You don't have to look far inside to find a list of women, in addition to Susan B. Anthony, who've made a difference in all areas of society: Helen Keller, Rosa Parks, Maya Angelou, Amelia Earhart, Julia Child, and many others...
Run by Spiritus Christi Church, proceeds from every purchase help men and women being served by the church's outreach ministries. Their website lists these outreach ministries.
The Cafe has a great menu: food, pastries, snacks and of course coffee! Come and enjoy the atmosphere, sit with friends, or get some work done on your own. If you're free on a Thursday night come in and enjoy some live music from local bands!
MVT was playing during our visit. We really enjoyed our dinner and coffee listening to their jazz. Check out their Facebook page.
1872 Cafe has become a place for community...
... and a place to learn about our history. So come in and try the Barista favorites or pick your own:
... and get to know Rochester a little more.
