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!
