Cool decor and ambience. I had the Cortado - was good. Wifi access free for 45 minutes which was great.

I've been to Bloc 11 many, many times over the years. I always liked it, even if the prices were on the high side. But now they've taken it to a new level. $4 for a croissant (incl tax). Plus, the men's restroom was filthy....More

Sitting in the real bloc having latte and toasted bagel was my first time experience. The relaxed ambience at bloc 11 has made me to make 4 visits for 3 days in a row. Definitely a must go when you're in Somerville.

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.

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.
