Foursquare Tips

  • Mocha latte for dessert! Yum-yum!
  • That you have to pay, let alone a $8 to use wifi, is absolutely absurd.
  • Grab a Vietnamese coffee--like a Spanish Latte, if you're an Espresso Royale fan, but not quite so sweet.
  • Savor one of Bloc 11's (direct trade) coffees in their converted bank vault seating.
  • try the Brazilian limeade! perfect on a hot summer day!
  • try the Vietnamese coffee. I like the iced version best.
  • Skip Sherman, skip Diesel - you'll always be able to find a seat at Bloc 11!
  • Great coffee, but no free wifi and dogs aren't even allowed outside!? This place could be so much better...
  • Delicious egg nog latte
  • This is the only place I go for coffee and breakfast in union square now. Their freshly squeezed Oj is so worth it.
  • Try the egg and ham breakfast sandwich on croissant instead of the standard bread, throw a bit of sriracha on there and you have one tasty way to wake up on a Saturday morning.
  • The coffee here is quite good, doesn't even needs sugar to enhance the flavor. Try one of their specialty drinks, or have an iced latte in the warmer months.
  • Quieter and calmer than Diesel, but closes earlier
  • BEWARE: No Free WiFi!!
  • Located in a converted bank, Bloc 11 makes good use of the space: The former vaults are now seating areas. The excellent lattes and espressos are pulled from the lime green La Marzocco machine.
  • They serve Intelligensia coffee. In a Chemex. Do it.
  • Get some coffee and sit in the vault for a while.
  • Anything you order will taste good.
  • Outdoor patio is lovely in good weather. Overall, great and interesting menu with plenty of seating options for any type of conversation.
  • They use Intelligentsia Coffee beans, grab yourself a cup + a bag to go. Slather beet cream cheese on everything.
