After a introductory workout this morning at Joe's Basecamp (more about that later), we decided to head down the road for a quick coffee fix at Fuel Espresso.

Who would have thought that in downtown buzzing Brookvale there was such a cool joint.  Now, I have known about Fuel Espresso for some time, but never bothered to pull over and enjoy the coffee, shame on me.

I heard owners Shak & Mark opened their espresso bar back in June, 2013 - since then they've had no shortage of patrons.

What can I say, quality Campos coffee, buzzing atmosphere, chic industrical style fit out and smells of food that make you ravenous.

The ongoing bustle of tradies, gym goers, local business dudes, regulars and cool hipsters gives the joint a great vibe!

Fuel Espresso Bar: Shop 2, 676 Pittwater Road (cnr Chard Road), Brookvale

Open: Monday – Friday 5.30am – 4.30pm & Saturday 5.30am – 2.00pm
