    Join us for a winter tour of downtown landmarks, focusing on interior spaces to stay warm! This tour covers a variety of architectural styles and successful adaptive reuses of buildings in the southern part of downtown Buffalo. Buildings featured on this tour include St. Joseph’s and St. Paul’s Cathedrals, the Ellicott Square Building, and Old Post Office. There are short outdoor walks to get from building to building, with the tour designed to allow tour takers to spend most of the time indoors.

    This tour meets at Mon Ami Cafe & Bakery, which is located across Cathedral Park from St. Paul’s Cathedral. Mon Ami’s building address is 298 Main Street, but the cafe’s main entrance is on Cathedral Park. Street parking is available on nearby streets such as Pearl and Swan Streets, and there are also several paid parking lots and ramps available nearby. The nearest Metro Rail stop is the Church Street station on Main Street, approximately one block away.
