Looks like a typical Swiss petrol station... probably has a basic mini-market with bread, frozen pizza/lasagne, beer, wine, milk, cheese, water, etc. And open when the normal shops are closed.

The Coop petrol stations usually have decent mini-markets if there is one in the area.

It might help if we knew your route so we might suggest where you will find something if this particular place isn't a shop.

Hi dabarTeesideEngland,

Sorry, I've never been inside that Esso station -- but if it's a typical gas station in Switzerland, at most it'll have a few racks of food.

There is a small Coop next to the train station that has quite a lot of stuff, from fresh and delicious sandwiches to breads and the makings for a picnic.

Have fun as you plan!

"On the Run" is a sort of mini shop and basic café at a petrol station. There are several of them around here. You can buy ready made sandwiches, soft drinks, chocolates and also "emergency" supplies for your kitchen like milk, bread etc. And get coffee, tea etc. I have seen one near Vevey as well...
