We are very fond of places that just serve breakfast and dinner. This is our newest discovery! The menu is wonderful. We came for breakfast - my wife had the Chilaquiles, which were some of the best we have ever tasted. I was craving a...Belgian waffle and my order was fantastic. The service was extremely nice and eating outside was a treat. We will be back often!More

Title says it all. We were recommended here by an employee at a hotel that we stayed at. Great food and environment, service was great. I would strongly recommend.

The Filling Station, an old gas station converted into this all American cafe is a good choice for brunch in Old Town Orange. We came on a nice sunny SoCal day with our furry friend in tow and were comfortably situated in their covered patio....It was a beautiful day for al fresco dining and the food paired quite nicely with it. I threw caution to the wind as I got myself a good 'ol American chicken fried steak. Who's counting calories anyway? It was pure comfort food and no regrets there. Eggs Florentine was a dish well-liked at the table while there were two dishes (French Toast Breakfast Platter and Strawberry Belgian Waffle) I never got the chance to try as they were quickly devoured. I guess they had good reason to. Servers were friendly and cheerful as well.More

Big breakfast. Good food. Consistent. Omelets, egg dishes. Parking is in the street, which can be a pain.

While in Anaheim area on business, my coworker and I decided to seek out a good breakfast place. We found The Filling Station Cafe in Orange, CA, which had good reviews. Upon arrival on a Wednesday morning we were immediately seated in the outdoor dining...area. The place was pretty busy for a weekday morning. Our server was a nice man who delivered our menus and took our coffee orders. We both selected the Eggs Benedict breakfast with hash browns. While we waited for our food, the staff made sure our coffees and waters were kept full. The breakfast arrived within approximately 15 minutes. The Eggs Benedict and hash browns were very good. The food was perfect tasting, warm and plenty for one person to enjoy. I recommend giving them a try. Enjoy!More

Prices were more than expected. We became irritated and wanted to leave but were not allowed. None of this means anything. The only cares about their employees.

It is not my first time filling up at station and the food is usually great and innovated. Unfortunately this time the biscuit on my country benedict was hard and chewy. That being said it had great flavor. I will return but not for the...same item.More

We went here for breakfast on a beautiful Sunday morning! There was a lengthy wait for patio seating on that gorgeous day but we opted to sit inside. I LOVED the decor and the ambiance! Our server was prompt and polite and took our order...shortly after being seated. I ordered the French toast and it was yummy! And the coffee.....BEST COFFEE I’ve had at a restaurant in years! And our server did keep our coffee cups full! The establishment was very clean and the food quality was great. I’ll definitely go back next time I’m in Orange, CA Highly recommended!More

Food is good, service is adequate, but there is nothing exceptional about this place. Went here before attending a Musco concert. 6 of us crammed in a back booth, not fun. Place is really small inside, not much room for big groups, or even medium...size groups. The outdoor seating would be fun on a nice day. They have heaters out there for cold weather.More

This place is cute. Took my mom and mother-in-law here for lunch, it was ok. I had a club sandwich and it was quite dry. I can't remember what they had but they said it was fine.

Met with a group of people at The Filling Station for lunch. The weather was beautiful so we all ate outside on the large patio. Service was very good and they were attentive. A great variety of food on their breakfast menu and wonderful sandwiches,...burgers on salads on their lunch menu. All our food was good and very inexpensive. The inside has plenty of seating if the weather is bad. It's an old filling station converted to a cafe. Highly recommend as it's in the "old town" Orange with a lot of antique shops within walking distance.More

This cozy diner in the Orange Circle area of Old Town Orange is a repurposed gas station that has indoor and outdoor seating. The service was friendly and quick, the coffee good, and the portions for our breakfast were HUGE! You get a valued bang-for-your-buck...meal here. This is a popular spot, so it gets busy. We had great timing on a sunny Saturday by getting there at 8 a.m., and sitting on the patio, with many open seats. But, within 20 minutes, the patio was nearly at full capacity.More

I got the house burger which was pretty tasty. We also had the avacado fries, lightly breaded and fried avacado slices with a moderatly spicy dipping sauce. Salads looked pretty good and they had some nice micro brews.

They are open for lunch and dinner and I think they do not close until 9 or 10. On Sunday's I know they are open earlier than lunch for the breakfast crowd.. Look at their website for the actual hours of operation. That is... More
