Muffins + coffee—the perfect pairing. (Bullet Coffee / Facebook)

There’s no better start to the day than a soul-pleasing cup of coffee. If you need to fuel that caffeine fix, visit Bullet Coffee Company. My favorite thing about this spot is that it’s drive-thru only.

Love the classics? Get the house blend or bold French roast. Want your coffee to taste like a dessert? Consider the Vulcan—white chocolate with brown sugar and cinnamon. All serious business? Order the Six Shooter—a six-shot large Americano, hot and black only.

Bonus: all pair perfectly with their chocolate or blueberry muffin.
