Union Square is often overlooked, but this little community in Somerville has a lot to offer.
1. The Independent
Patrick Haney: The cheese plate is always worth checking out and the steak frites are delicious.
Patrick Haney: Check out a live band in back, or have some drinks up front. They've got a great outdoor seating area during the warmer months, and the food is pretty delicious.
3. Bloc 11 Cafe
Patrick Haney: The coffee here is quite good, doesn't even needs sugar to enhance the flavor. Try one of their specialty drinks, or have an iced latte in the warmer months.
4. Sherman Cafe
Patrick Haney: The sandwiches here are fantastic, which has much to do with the delicious bread they use to make them.
Patrick Haney: On a special night, spend the extra money and try the 3, 5 or 7 course meal. The food is delicately prepared and even the small portions will fill you up eventually.
