Davis Square’s favorite café has been renovated with an updated facade, signage, decor, and service area. On pleasant days, two glass garage doors open the coffeehouse to the bustle of its own parklet along busy Elm Street. Diesel Café is a welcoming enclave of art, industrial design, and most important, excellent coffee drinks and breakfast/lunch fare.
Industrial and common materials are used to create an interior that feels like part art gallery, part living room, and part hardware store. Neon signage, industrial furniture and lighting, antique signs and a pool table, paired with relics from the automotive past, are all hallmarks of the cafe’s new look. Visionary clients and distinctive design have established Diesel Café as the high octane hangout in Somerville’s hippest neighborhood.
