This is a great place to nurse a hangover on the weekend. (I remember some tables sharing carafes of Mimosas.) The service is good and the menu offers a wide range of choices. Also kid friendly. Will definitely visit again.

The Filling Station reminded us of cafe dining in Paris. We were able to sit outside in the rather large, umbrella covered patio; however, there was ample seating inside also. The French Dip was stuffed with meat and cheese and was served with a mixed green salad (my choice). The horseradish sauce, which was served with the sandwich, was quite delicious. My husband ordered the chicken tortilla salad. The large tortilla shell was stuffed with all sorts of yummy food. The craft beer and iced tea were delicious. We will return to this restaurant in Old Town Orange.

Wonderful outside eating when the weather permits. Enjoy great breakfasts at The Filling Station. We always have a wonderful eating and service experience here, breakfast, lunch or dinner. This morning the breakfast spinach, feta and eggs my daughter and I shared was perfect, Enjoy!

This little gem of a restaurant has morphed into a very charming restaurant with nice menues from breakfast to dinner. They are frequently adding to its ambience, adding a little picket fence all the way around the outside (it is on a corner) and then adding flower boxes all around as well. They do a great job accomodating guests when the weather changes, with lots of umbrellas, heaters, and when it rains they have a white tent that keeps you dry. They have expanded their dinner menu in recent months, and they offer wine discounts some evenings. I feel like this small vintage gas station has come into its own with a lot of charm and comfort.

There are two places for breakfast near Chapman University I can reccomend. For quick high quality fast food--Bruxie--"The Bold Fold" where they serve waffle sandwiches out of this world. For a delcious and generous full sit down breakfast--with and comfortable outdoor dining area, its the Filling Station, hands down. Expect a wait.
