Great coffee shop with vegan menu items!

Posted on 03 / 06 / 2012

This coffee shop is wonderful! The first vegan-friendly coffee shop in New Haven (Blue State has followed with 2 locations in the last couple years), this is in a charming building just past Wooster Square Park and 1 block over from all of New Haven's famous Wooster Street pizza. The first place I ever saw vegan cream cheese or a tempeh BLT on a menu! They do wonderful, simple breakfast sandwiches with cream cheese, tomato, cucumber, avocado, etc. Make sure you get your food to stay, open-faced. Pretty and delicious!

This is a cozy coffee shop that always has some sections of the NY Times laying around, and used to have a variety of board games though those have been disappearing over the last couple years. Coffee itself is great, both house and French roasts. And a couple of tea options are also pleasing. The staff are lovely tattooed & pierced people (I think it's a requirement!), please tip them!

Great New Haven Saturday morning: Fuel for breakfast & coffee, a swing through the City Seed Farmers Market (every Saturday May-December & every other Saturday January-April), and a stroll through Wooster Square Park. Couldn't be better!

Pros: great coffee, vegan cream cheese!, cozy
Cons: can get quite busy

Root beer vegan cupcakes!

Posted on 02 / 23 / 2010

We stopped by Fuel for some coffee and vegan cupcakes... Both the root beer cupcake and the carrot cake cupcake were delicious. The dark roast coffee was decent, and the counter staff was very friendly. We'd definitely stop in again the next time we're in town.

Pros: vegan cupcakes, good coffee, nice staff
