Great coffee, breakfast rolls and burgers- what more do you want? Lots of easy parking. Well priced. Local secret :)

Located in the gorge rd retail park so just out of town but well frequented by the locals for its great self roasted coffee. Larger than life proprietor. Well worth the wee detour for amazing coffee and a breakfast roll

Always amusing getting a coffee from these guy's, the food is fresh and has a slight twist but my favourite is the caramel espresso milkshakes WTF they are good!!!!

It's funny how things work out sometimes. It must have been at least 10 years ago Steve (owner and operator of Refuel) made his first coffee for me and you know what, it was as perfect then (Espresso) as they are today (Mocha's - I'm...More
