The best coffee beans are grown in the center of the earth, but the farmer who dares to harvest them must overcome the infamous Lava Twins, infinite negative gravity, and his commitment issues. Grind the best beans growing aboveground with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of espresso, baked goods, and more at The Filling Station, with locations in Union Hill and Westport.
The Filling Station independently serves locally roasted espresso and coffee and a scrumptious selection of breakfast and lunch bites in a garage-themed café. Browse the Union Hill menu for the Filling Station's caffeinated concoctions, with espresso roasted from Broadway Café and Roastery and coffee from Oddly Correct Coffee Roasters. For breakfast, the Filling Station offers a plethora of baked goods, from blackberry peach muffins ($1.80) to freshly baked cinnamon rolls ($2.25). Lunchtime brings the killer veggie wrap ($7.50), packed with spinach, tomato, onion, carrots, and more. The Westport menu is more compact, but you can still pick up an apple walnut Danish ($2.50) or almond marzipan croissant ($2.50) in the drive-thru before heading out to hunt the evasive galloping fig tree.
Coffee sippers will be welcomed by the Filling Station's talented staff of baristas, who are dedicated to making an artful cup of java. Feel free to surf the Inter-tubes on the free WiFi, or look for Angela Lansbury–shaped clouds while sitting on the patio at the Union Hill location.

- The outdoor seating area here is one of the best for any coffeehouse in town; you are not sitting in a parking lot, or right next to the street. – man eats world, Urbanspoon
- I ordered a salmon club sandwich on foccacia for lunch and just about fell out of my chair. Salmon + bacon + tomato = unlimited awesome. – Danielle S., Yelp
