    Excellent latte, fresh pastry and a lovely welcoming porch where you will manage to find a nice spot no matter how crowded. Great atmosphere!

    Really wanted to love this place. The place looks cool, converted bank vault is awesome, but the espresso was very over extracted.

    They use Intelligentsia Coffee beans, grab yourself a cup + a bag to go. Slather beet cream cheese on everything.

    I love Bloc's hot and iced coffee, but watch out for the avocados on the breakfast sandwich. Half the time, they are a little past their date.

    Expensive but always worth it. Check out the vestige bank vault in the back. 🏦

    Great espresso! A bit on the pricier-side, but this place has a great space, with lots of seating and natural light (but no wifi 😣)

    All sandwiches pale in comparison to the Pallet... it's that divine fig jam. Also, the servers are notoriously spacey so double check your order before you leave.

    Tons of space to work, study or read. Love the open kitchen. Try the most popular sandwich: Terrace, a delish combo of turkey, ched­dar, avo­cado, gar­lic may­on­naise (YUM) & tomato on focaccia.

    Unlike sister cafe Diesel, Bloc 11 always has an open seat somewhere. Sadly, the Brazilian limeade (featuring condensed milk) is no longer on the menu.

    If you're a Comcast customer, you can pick up the free XFinity wi-fi, and avoid Bloc11's silly pay to use wi-fi.

    Love their latte!! Perfectly steamed and not scolding hot like in some other places. Unfortunately no free wifi. My suggestion: get half hour with a purchase.

    The Pallet had a nice combination of flavors but, a little heavy on the fig jelly. It was just a little too sweet.

    The bacon egg and cheese sandwich is surprisingly delicious on a honey wheat bagel.
