Best Chai Vanilla Latte EVER!!!!

Unique atmosphère in Old Town Orange, CA. Solid breakfast.... don't pass on the Chai vanilla latte! Be prepared for a wait on the weekend. This place is popular for a reason.

Highly recommended in Old Orange as a must dining experience: With that said, the Filling Station simply is a filling station featuring mediocre well priced large portioned fare accompanied by excellent service. Experiencing a selection of menu items from soup to salads to sandwiches to quesadillas, it was all truly middling unexceptional food piled high in overly generous portions. With... More

Fantastic breakfasts, large portions, great indoor and outdoor seating. This place is regularly crowd though breakfast is my only experience with it. Plus you're walking distance from the Orange circle.

Nice place for breakfast or lunch (haven't tried dinner there yet). Food is good, with big portions. Good selection of egg dishes, sandwiches, burgers, salads, etc. Service is prompt and friendly.

The Filling Station is in Old Town Orange and is nestled amongst antique shops and fun restaurants. The food is what will keep you coming back! I have never had a bad meal here and my kids always ask to go. The price is reasonable. You won't be disappointed.

We went to The Filling Station Café right at lunch time on a Saturday. As expected, we had to wait about 20 minutes but that is not unusual for good places and we didn't mind. After being seated, our server was there shortly to take our order. My wife had a very large chicken tostada and I had the very... More

Read good reviews so we went with friends for breakfast. Three of us ordered eggs, sausage and French toast while the other person had eggs Benedict. She made the best choice as her meal scrumptious while ours were only ok. The French toast wasn't as fluffy as I'd hoped and the veggie sausages were small and over cooked. Eggs were... More

I am a native of Orange and remember when the location was an actual filling station in Orange. Just down the street from Chapman University (my alma mater) it has great food and a friendly outdoor atmosphere. Just fun watching the people walk by. Our favorite is the club sandwich. Enough food for 2. The desserts are yummy as well.... More

We came here as a change of pace, wanting to try something new in the area. The Filling Station had great reviews on Yelp, and it is in a fabulous location - just 1 block from the Orange Circle. We went on a Saturday morning. It was packed, with a waiting list. But there was room at the counter for... More

Located not far from Anaheim, this eclectic restaurant sported a very versatile menu and was great for the Grandkids! We enjoyed our delicious breakfast and the efficient service. They had a children's menu although limited with only two breakfast items but the adult menu was fine! Parking is limited behind the building but there is public parking either across the... More
