Fuel Coffee Shop was founded in the spring of 2014. Tim Butzen and Colleen Mathews, co-owners, have a combined forty years of varied restaurant chops, and participate in day to day operations. At one time, their collective dream was to open a great breakfast spot in Lafayette that also served great coffee, someplace they themselves would want to go on a lazy Saturday. When the coffee shop Colleen barista’ed at went up for sale, they were able to begin realizing that vision.
Having purchased the old shop, they found themselves positioned to put their years of practical and observational knowledge to work, creating an ever changing eclectic menu, and tweaking some old favorites. Follow this trail of experience, paired with a sincere regard for the loveliness life has to offer; in the company of other people, with humor, and acceptance, arrive welcomed at Fuel's front door.
Rustic sandwiches, salads and an eclectic breakfast menu await you at FUEL. Vegetarian? We can make that happen.
