indoor and outdoor seating. Great vegetarian and meat sandwiches, tea, coffee. Sandwiches can be heated, can take some time to get served since make from scratch. Nice place to hang so some people stay for a long time with their coffee and computer.

Nice coffee and atmosphere! Some interesting sweets and youthful ambient. Service is friendly and I like the way they used industrial ceilings (high and open) to bring a modern and clean look.

If I want to sit in a coffee shop atmosphere and grab lunch or a cup of tea, this is my new go-to. The peppermint tea is really strong - it's an experience.

Decorated in the classic factory attire that defines all of the business owned by the magicians of bakery&cafe of Somerville, Bloc 11 allows to sip an overly expensive coffee in their dismissed saferoom!

Best latte in Union Square. The cookies, lemon bars, and other treats are also delightful. Friendly baristas.

Bloc 11 has great healthy options and often has wonderful creative soups. Service is friendly and can get backed up on weekends but it's worth the wait.

Delicious coffee and tea. The breakfast sandwich was mediocre. Worthwhile to visit for the coffee though! Love the indoor decor.

Fun place to go for lunch in Somerville. The sandwich and salad choices are very interesting with options of roasted carrots, grilled fennel as well as more traditional choices of chicken salad and roast beef. You can also ask for a sandwich to be converted to a salad. I did this and had a wonderful salad of fresh greens, avocado,... More

I happened to have a chance touring this trendy cafe in a former bank. Just like the named chose, it is a solid brick building on the main drag of Union Square. You can choose the outdoor terrace patio dining which is surrounded with well landscaped seasonal flowers, green bushes and an old bicycle with an interesting story to tell;... More
