    They serve one of the best coffees in HK, without a doubt. Coffee is robust and heavenly strong. Try their cakes too. The Choc Fudge and Lemon Poppyseed are good.

    Horrible service. I waited 15min for the coffee, had to go back to the counter to ask for it. The coffee was delivered 5min later with no apology. The piccolo was burnt. Avoid! There are better places

    Flat white coffee (the milk is truly velvety silky soft) & ANY of their cakes (carrot, banana, lemon poppy seed, apple cinnamon, chocolate) are 👍👍 Not a coffee person but Fuel always hits the spot!

    Cafe latte same size: $48 at fuel $25 at Wagyu Lounge. Both great quality but I think the one at wagyu has more kicks. Less $ and wait time plus closer to my work so wagyu is a clear winner.

    Terrific coffee espresso drinks. Robust flavor and good finish. Recommend: Piccolo Latte and carrot cake square. Served by very handsome and knowledgeable baristas.

    The coffee is nice once, but definitely needs the sugar they provide with it 😁. If you don't like to add sugar then stick to Pret 😊. Also there is no WiFi 😔.

    Don't take Nic too seriously, one bad experience can put him off a place for life. Fuel has some of the best coffee in HK. Their espresso is outstanding, their lattes are powerfully concentrated.

    Nic T is right in a way. If you want massive milky mugaccinos stick to Starbucks. Fuel makes real coffee, not overflowing with milk & water. Not bad. But the service is average & Barista Jam is better

    I have to disgree with nic t. I like my coffee black and thought the taste was not too bitter. Upgrade for 4 for the size. Like user Hels said the masala chai tea latte is excellent. I like fuel.

    Make sure you can grab a seat and enjoy a wonderful coffee and people watching! Great for informal meetings and seeing friends.

    As with most places that have acquired a cult following, staff attitude has tragically fallen into the gutter. Must be sure to clarify nxt time: a large cappuccino with NO attitude on the side, pls. :

    Good coffee, yes. But when you sit for five more seconds than your coffee lasted they'll ask you to move on.. crap service

    A much better choice than Starbucks. I don't know anything about coffee, but here coffee tastes strong and the milk is very frothy and smooth. I can definitely feel the caffeine down my blood stream.

    M-F: 07:30 -19:00 S-S:10:00 - 19:00. Single is recommended over double espresso. Also, try their New Zealand specialty, "Flat White".

    Don't agree thy the coffee is bitter , it's just not the milky bland stuff in a bucket you get elsewhere. small cups are classy and good crema and flavor.

    Silky, mild mannered but flavourful flat whites. Plenty of seats. Cash only for small purchases (two coffees was small).

    Some of the best coffee in HK. Get the double ristretto espresso to be ready for the day!

    Very good expresso. Very good selection of coffee brews. Hot chocolate is better at LGB on the floor below.

    height of pretentiousness. anyone who thinks coffee here is the best must have grown up drinking 3 in 1 instant coffee packets.

    Delicious espresso. Similar to Blue Bottle Coffee in San Francisco. Very hip.

    Fuel won an Honorable Mention for the Champion Cup of Coffee Award at the 2013 Foodie Forks! We heart it for the sanctuary of tranquility (aka coffee buzz) in IFC...

    Have to ask for your receipt. They hold them back like it is a special service despite everyone here on business meetings.

    Most disappointing coffee ever. Way too much hype, long wait, black coffee undrinkable. Then told I'm not allowed to take a photo. Harrumph

    Take a little rest in between shopping at the IFC for a really good coffee! Great Cappucino and iced cafe latte 😊☕️💕

    Fuel // it's pumping // evident that it's the best coffee in town // my only gripe ... a simple baguette or Italian sandwich on offer would be a great treat

    If you're having their gorgeous masala chai opt for the take away option since it seems larger!

    Worth the trek from Kowloon for the coffee. Particularly if you're an Australian in need of a good coffee!

    Best flat white, cappuchino and espresso in HK. The 'ginger crunch' is always a worthy accompaniment

    Being a regular still think they are overpriced especially when the flat white is $40? Seems like it's better to hv it there!

    Best coffee in HK. Experience a little bit of Wellington, New Zealand's coffee culture from 9,000km away.

    Of you get here early, easiest way is to head to ifc 1 office tower forum & head upstairs in the mall.

    Eh. Overrated coffee place. Expensive and everything is too heavy and thick. Like drinking oil sludge.
