Fueling up can definitely come by way of coffee. To charge up, you can head to Gasoline Alley in NoHo.

The name actually came from the shop’s location back in the 60’s and 70’s. The area was concentrated with mechanic and service stations, known as “gasoline alley”. Now, they’re serving Intelligentsia coffee and pastries in a relaxed little shop.

Got my boost with an Americano. The espresso is rich, flavorful and smooth.
