Word on the street is that Undergrounds Coffeehouse and Roastery is to die for. We thought having them on to help celebrate Day of the Dead was a killer idea.

Bridget and Sara brought in some sandwiches from their menu for us to sample, and if there’s a Heaven, I’m certain they serve "The McKinley” there.

We also tried the “Grover Cleveland” and “Rick James B****! sandwiches,” It would have been a fatal error to miss out on these.

All of their menu items are named after famous deceased Buffalonians (or those with a connection to Buffalo), and people who were influential in the coffee industry.

Undergrounds has a cool backstory; they are located in a former funeral home in Buffalo’s First Ward & are a great example of WNY’s entrepreneurial spirit.
