“perfect coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2009

first time there and it was like a breath of fresh air. everything gleamed and shined- it was so clean! The music was good and relaxing and the atmosphere appeared light and easy. when I got to the counter the woman behind it looked at me with such compassion, as if she genuinely wished for my happiness. never before have i seen a latte so beautiful- three leaf designs of white inside a lovely red brown... and then it was perfect... just right amount of hot and creamy, a smooth, rich, and slightly nutty taste. i sat down at a table near a large glass garage door and watched the charming neighborhood around become enveloped by autumn. I was so enchanted that I almost forgot where i was in the city. Filling Station- I'll be back.

“Arrogant service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2009

I tried the Filling Station on 4 occasions during the past month. The atmosphere is good and so is the coffee & food. However, the service is not so good unless you are a regular customer. Each time, I had wait several minutes to get service. Once, the line was 7 or 8 people deep but there was only one person taking orders. The other person was washing pots & pans and walked back & forth behind the line without lending a hand to service customers. Later, when it was not busy, she waited on customers. I guess it was more important to wash the wares than to wait on customers. Another time, I walked right up to the counter. There were 3 employees working yet I stood there awkwardly waiting to be served while two were engaged in conversation with customers seated at the bar and one was focused on her chores. Each of the 3 looked my way a couple of times, but did not even acknowledge my existence. Once they finished their chit chat, one of them strolled over to take my order. Other times, the service seems cold or unwelcoming, unless they know you. I really want to like this place, but I don't know that I can wait out the hazing period to be accepted as a customer.
