Unfortunately we only visited on the last day of our week in Chatham. There was a wait of about ten minutes when we arrived which I always think of as a good sign. The staff were friendly and the breakfast menu was what I consider...More

Locals recommended The Filling Station to us for breakfast. The “Filling Station” was a clever and unique theme. I loved the mural on the wall and shared with my friend what I thought all the symbols meant. Still curious about 10:10 and the ice skates....More

We left our hotel early to shoot the sunrise. Hungry, rather than go all the way back to our hotel for a mediocre free breakfast we did a search, checked out and rejected one other place and happily found the Filling Station. What a treat....More

Description
Rik and Caren Morse are delighted to welcome you to Chatham Filling Station, their new downtown Chatham eatery with a retro roadside diner vibe located at the former Old Harbor Café. Chatham Filling Station serves breakfast and lunch from 7:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., year-round, six days a week (closed on Tuesdays). Breakfast is served all day; lunch is offered from 11:30 on. The menu includes some of Rik and Caren’s tried-and-true family recipes, some rib-sticking Southern specialties, and American “root food” dishes influenced by the early immigrants of northern Europe, Africa and the Caribbean islands. EVERYTHING is homemade!
