Bloc Cafe is run by the same team behind Diesel Cafe and Forge Baking Company and is located right in the heart of Union Square. The coffee is pretty good and the outdoor patio has a nice plant wall, but we often stop by for the excellent sandwiches. Oh, and to hang out in the bank vault back room.
