My husband Adam and I go often to the Depot.. We get greeted by name. Even if there is a wait... it is worth it, you will get served a cup of coffee and Alicia will keep you updated. It is a fun place to go. Everyone at the counter talks to each other or to the girls, or the... More

My daughter googled "Best Place to eat Breakfast in Peabody" and this little gem popped up on her smartphone. I am so glad I took my kids here.

Wow! What a nice breakfast. Eggs Benedict with home fries excellent. Pancakes with Carmel maple butter was terrific. Counter style cozy place and friendly owners. Highly recommend if you're anywhere near this area. 10 on a scale of 10! Ps. Good tunes too. Breakfast with the Blues.

What a great small place. The two of us went around 11:30 waited about 15 min. Counter seating only. Worth the wait. Friendly staff and the food was outstanding. Reasonably priced also CASH only.

A cool old depot dinner. I have had breakfast there and it was great. I love the old dinners. They also have the hottest sauces around. So when you go in look behind the counter on the wall, they have a lot of different hot sauces to choose from.
