The Southern Station opened in February 2014 and is located in Santa Margarita, California. Since then, we have been serving up southern inspired breakfast dishes like fried chicken and waffles, bananas foster french toast, and sweet potato pork hash. For lunch catfish and chips and our fried chicken sandwich are always a good go to. We also offer mimosas, craft beer and wine. Recently we have opened back up for dinners and feature items such as beef pot roast, shrimp n grits and spaghetti on Fridays. Dinner specials change daily and are offered Thursdays-Monday.

We have a large outdoor patio that can accommodate large parties and we are dog friendly. Come June we will be featuring live music, details to come. Come grab some home cooked comfort food or call in and take some to go.
