There's a lot to love about Diesel. The coffee is great, the food menu is extensive and the service is consistently friendly and fast. I want to highlight Diesel's underappreciated assets: the layout and the wifi. Diesel is like a reverse mullet: party in the front, business in the back. If you must buckle down and work then head to the plentiful, outlet-accessible, sunshine-free seating past the pool tables. If you want to soak up some vitamin D with your coffee, there are great seats next to the all-glass storefront. Now on to the wifi, which a lot of people complain about. Yes, the wifi is paid. You know what else the wifi is? Crazy fast and reliable. As a customer, I appreciate this.Diesel has created a loyal customer by locking her or him in with the wifi subscription. And once you start seeing the same faces at Diesel again and again, you'll start feeling like a part of a community. YOU will be a part of what makes this place cool. Everyone wins.
