On this site I have Jetpack installed so their blocks are available.

The next block is the Slideshow block.

The next block is the business hours block. Victor Ramirez mentioned having a block like this that gets updated when a user updates their Google My Business info. That would be pretty cool.

There are a number of additional Jetpack blocks you can check out for yourself.
