Hidden Gem: 4th Street Fillin Station

For those striving to eat healthy yet still craving a high-vibe dining and drinks destination with plenty of atmosphere, locating such a spot can feel like searching for the Holy Grail. Luckily, you don’t need to be Indiana Jones to find all this in one place. Just head east to Cocoa Beach and pull up a chair at 4th Street Fillin Station. 

Since opening in 2019, 4th Street has established itself as a locally loved beachside mainstay. Located in a renovated former gas station, this open-air restaurant and bar is known for its reliably delicious food, great drinks, and good vibes. 

“There weren’t a lot of options in the area for plant-based food and a full bar,” said owner and Brevard native Daniel Todd. “Our vision was a place where kids, dogs, groups, and people of all ages could comfortably coexist. Somewhere where there were as many plant-based options on the menu as comfort foods.” 

When, after 60+ years as a service station, the property on the corner of 4th Street North and A1A suddenly became available, Todd knew it was time to act. “Once I toured the property and saw the tree out back, I knew this was the place,” he said. 

The deck, fence, and even a 10-seat hanging table have been built around the iconic oak tree, giving the area a relaxed ambiance and backyard feel.

Bright murals by local artist Insane-O add tropical pops of color. Reclaimed automotive materials left over from the property’s shop days have been turned into functional, artistic decor by local metal fabrication artist Jesse Saum. 

4th Street serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and drinks seven days a week. The menu is built around simple ingredients and complex flavors, and features creative twists on old favorites. Up front, where the convenience store used to be, is a dessert bar known for towering frozen concoctions. They even serve booze-enhanced and plant-based ice cream.

At the helm in the back of the house is kitchen manager and chef Kali Herrick. 

“Right now, our focus is on upgrading that tiny kitchen, so we can continue to expand,” Todd said. 

And expand they will. The restaurant will temporarily close its indoor and backyard areas in November as construction begins on a bigger kitchen and rooftop deck.

They’ll remain partially open throughout the two-month construction and have their own 4th Street Food Truck out front, alongside rotating guest food trucks. Once finished, the rooftop deck will incorporate an expanded menu with an upscale environment and will be available for private events.
