“Satisfaction Guaranteed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

I visited Fuel for the first time yesterday. We ordered a soy latte and an ice tea. I don't know which soy brand they're using but it's not overly nutty, arrived with a napkin perfectly wrapped around it's glass neck, a petite biscuit on the spoon and a love heart in the foam. It was great and the coffee was good, but order a double shot if you like your coffee a little stronger like me.

My husband's ice tea arrived in a tall glass with ice and straw which was a nice departure from a bottle being placed in front of us and so we lingered.

The inside of this little cafe nook is cool as a previous customer mentioned below but it didn't seem too cold to dine in. The cafe is nicely decorated in a contemporary style with a few touches off art deco and darker lighting with some side bench/chairs inside and a few tables and chairs outside.

As we waited for drinks we liked the look of the short order items and ordered poached eggs with ham with hollandaise sauce. They came on one slice of ciabatta which was just enough, the eggs were poached perfectly. We left with a couple of the 'in house' made pies, lamb for him, chicken for me and they were very good. The chicken pie was full of large chicken pieces that had been cooked slowly so lovely and soft, a whole olive, sun dried tomato, onion and some garlic. The lamb pie was equally as good and I will definitely return for the larger pies for a quick meal. The pricing overall is on the mark.

Staff were professional and the cafe has been scrubbed within an inch of it's life. Sparkling clean.

Well done Fuel.

“A local coffee spot with friendly service and excellent coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This place is my local coffee shop and I love it. The coffee is always perfect, the staff is great and they are only a few feet from Soroptimist Park and Rose Bay (no better place to enjoy a morning coffee than under a palm tree taking in the sea).
