The "hip" factor is an important feature, but there is nothing fussy or quaint at Diesel- just solid good food. Try the lox & bagel platter- amazing. Come early to get a table for brunch- the place crowds up with laptop coffee drinkers.

We just hit up this place for coffee and conversation. Can get really crowded by door. It's bigger than you think...wind around the counter and you'll see a ton of seating at the back with tables next to outlets...good for setting up shop for the day.

Our coffee's were quite good.

This place is great to enjoy a cup of coffee, get some work done, and grab a quick/light bite. I love coming here on weekends to read or work on my laptop.

Only downside - you have to pay for wifi and drinks are somewhat expensive. (on par with Starbucks for the most part).

Ironically it sits right across the street from Starbucks and they both seem to do well in this neighborhood. The coffee products are all first rate, the food is cafe style fare and mostly well done. The vibe is west coast hipster (think Portland, Seattle) and the workers are equal parts charm and show (you will get tattoo ideas here). Hope it stays forever!

The food is not for the student budget but it is a great place to hang out if you want to split a pot of tea with friends. I havent bought any food just tea and coffere. I will go there again when i can afford it.
