Just popped in to grab something for my lunch, and boy, was it worth it! I got a baguette, with chicken mayonnaise and bacon, and it was absolutely amazing. Baguette was soft, yet slightly crispy, but not crumbly, a more than generous portion of chicken...More

Visit this Sandwich shop now and again when passing. The breakfast rolls and delicatessen rolls are out of the world. Not cheap but that’s what you for. Certainly recommend. Tell your friends.

Please train your staff. Unbelievably inefficient and slow. Also save the cleaning until after closing. Shame as the food is good. Why it shuts so early in the day when the coast is still busy is very strange

This may not look too encouraging; opposite a station just near a roundabout and roadworks on the main road. But the queues out the door are a good clue. Go inside and you find a very attractive owner and 5 or six very attractive girls all working their socks off in what may very well be the world's best sandwich store. Actually , if you are on the way to one of the 10 golf courses between here and Gullane this is the perfect place to stop for your (very substantial) snacks. How does a place earn the title of 'World's Best"? Well , for a start there are about 30 mixes you can choose from. I went with Curried Chicken and Mango and added assorted salad (including fresh beetroot!) on cracked wheat bread for a perfect picnic sandwich. Our picnic was on one of the 4 or 5 great windswept beaches nearby. The Filling Station do lots of fairly solid home baking as well. They leave free samples on the counter to tempt you. I had an Apple Cinamon 'Rock' cake as well. All in all, well worthy of the detour. Suggestions? Would have loved a Scotch Egg or a fresh Sausage Roll as well!
