Great spot for a coffee, sandwich, or salad. Lots of local ingredients and healthy options in every category. The staff is very professional and the service is consistently excellent. The bank vault in back is fun.

We've not been disappointed with any of the sandwiches or coffees here and we've tried all. The old vault in the back is fun to look at while we make up stories of what used to happen in this building. Easy to go back time and time again.

Came for breakfast here with the family. The food was pretty good. We ate outside as I not only don't drink coffee, but the smell makes me ill. Be sure to take a walk around inside and explore the old bank vaults.

We had a nice breakfast here - good coffee, delicious oatmeal, and an egg/ham sandwich that my husband liked so much he came back the following day. Plenty of seating, very attractive place. Only downside was that the WIFI was through a third-party provider and therefore not free. I guess we've gotten spoiled but most coffee shops do offer free... More

I've been going to Bloc 11 off and on for years and always am happy when I remember it as an option. The sandwiches are really good as is the coffee. It is a fairly large space with a variety of seating options. They have high chairs and booster seats which is nice too. The only complaint I have is... More

I have had three of their Lattes - Regular, Mocha and Mint Mocha. I must say that the presentation and the flavor is much better than Starbucks lattes which I regularly consume. These lattes reminded me of lattes I have had at a Coffee chain in India- Cafe Coffee day. The ambiance is chilled out with the music. I would... More

Great selection of fully-loaded sandwiches and really good coffees/iced coffees, along with free Wifi, the perfect place to work or hang with friends.

I am sure the food is awesome, considering the line out of the door. But the fact that I got my sandwich 30mins after I ordered it is not something breakfast experience should be like at all.
