Time to Fill up!

Our transition into the Sparks store has been going great.  Many of our Falls Road customers are coming over on a daily basis.  They are discovering that it is only 5-10 minutes out of their way and definitely well worth it. Saturday and Sundays have become our Falls Road support group days..Come out and see old friends and meet new ones.  Sunday Brunch is coming soon!  A new second location is the works, so stay tuned for details.

Falls Road Store Closing after 10 years

Meg FS

Dear Friends,

It is with great sadness that we are closing the Filling Station Coffee Shop at the Falls Road location on September 30, 2011. For the past 10 years we have worked 7 days a week to serve this community. We are forever grateful for the friendships, love, loyalty, and kindness that we have received during this time. It is for these reasons and more that we worked tirelessly to keep the doors open, even through the tough economy, and remained a stronghold on the corner.

Nevertheless, our lease term has expired and we are unable to renegotiate rent with our landlord.

We hope that you continue to support our second location and make the Sparks Filling Station(14910 York Road, Sparks) a daily or weekend destination. The coffee, baked goods, soups, and breakfast sandwiches will remain of the highest quality as will the customer service. More importantly, we are working to open another location in the area to continue to serve this community. Please sign our guest book or join us on facebook to receive updates.

Similar to the Falls Road location, the Sparks Filling Station has beautiful outdoor seating. Come enjoy the large backyard area complete with trees and a stream. We have plenty of room and indoor seating as well. Bring a friend, sit back, relax, and even connect to the Internet with our free wifi service.

Again, thank you for all of your love and support.
