Having opened a shop down the block in Carlton, I visit the Filling Station fairly often.
Sandwich shop in a former filling station. Good sandwiches, homemade soups in colder season, served up by nice friendly folks. Also some nice local wines and local brews available to go with! Great little patio (as well as tables inside) if eating there. You'll usually find a friendly mix of locals, wine tourists, and cyclists, among others there. Also brew Stumptown coffees/espresso drinks.
