Weekday buckets of coffee and lazy weekend breakfasts
In the backstreets of Annerley is the quiet suburban Bower Street which looks like any other row of houses in any other area of Brisbane. However, set on the corner of Waterton Street is a tiny cafe with a warm-hearted barista called Patrick. He makes a beautiful smooth coffee and is more than happy to cater to those who like a 'bucket' for their morning pick-me-up.

There are a few seats inside at a bench where many writers, students and corporate types sit and make use of the free wi-fi in Fuel Espresso. Outside, you can lounge at one of the small tables which are nestled beside a leafy green bush and guarded from the street with a trellis.

The food is simple but delicious and I've been known to wander down on a Sunday morning for a big cup of soy chai and a chocolate brownie to keep me fuelled during my day ahead. There is also a small section of cards and stationery for sale which are made locally and at reasonable prices. You might think to send a friend that belated birthday card you've been meaning to write for ages.

The friendly service and the fact that it's open 7 days is what brings me back to Fuel again and again. Patrick and his staff work almost every day of the year (he's even been known to be open on Christmas Day) and locals know that he's reliable for that hungover tonic or relaxing weekend breakfast date.
