We loved this coffee shop.They had fabulous quiche and pastrys. It was in an old historic area and the staff was great. The coffee was excellent. We went on a Sunday morning, the staff and patrons were great.We will return.

If you want the best coffee in the Lafayette-West Lafayette area--and a really great breakfast, lunch or snack, this is the place. The owners roast their own beans, bake their own pastries, and are a great part of the community. You will get a true...More

F U E L is authentic. Owned and run by someone who passionately cares about product, service and community. Every town should be so lucky as to have a place as cool and caring as this place, where people can gather together over coffee to...More

The coffee at this place is simply great. It's one of the few places in the area that serve coffee the right way (flavorful, porcelain cups and no pumpkin spice lattes).However, Fuel is much more than a coffee shop: They offer outstanding lunch options, including...More

Went here for breakfast and coffee. Excellent food! Atmosphere is nice overall... lots of people taking themselves very seriously (reading self improvement books and crap like that)... but they were polite and unobtrusive.

I went here a couple of weeks ago with a friend, on a weekday, for breakfast. The coffee here is perhaps the best in town! I also really enjoyed a large slice of the tomato, spinach, goat cheese quiche, which was very well-priced at $4-5....More

I stop by Fuel every month or two, usually when I'm already in Lafayette and want to spend an hour reading and drinking some coffee or having a snack. It's a bit crowded, and because the room is long and narrow, if you don't sit...More

I'm not typically a coffee drinker, but my sis has an obsession with visiting every local coffee shop we come across. This one was my favorite. The owner helped my mom and I (the non-coffee drinkers) select our drinks based on our individual tastes. Both...More

Fuel serves locally roasted (distractingly delicious) coffee from its sister company, Hummingbird Coffee Co, located on the north side of Lafayette. The cafe also features homemade baked goods and a modest breakfast/lunch menu with delightfully non-traditional twists. The space is inviting for all citizens of humanity and welcomes children with a small toy area in which they can be let off their tethers for a bit. It does close a bit early so the owners may let their own child off his tether for a bit. It's a great spot. You'll love it.
