“Excellent service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

I have been here quite a few times over the last couple of years. I find whether you go just for a coffee or a lunch or evening meal, it is always a pleasant experience. you are greeted warmly and this continues throughout your time there. There is a good choice of either tapas or a la carte options.There are also blackboard specials.The meals are tasty and satisfying and I have never had cause to complain about anything we have chosen from the menu. Service is as important as the food when you go out and both are great here

“Keep this place a secret”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Reluctant to give a review so that we don't share this place! A favorite local for us, love the seasonally changing menu, and daily fresh creations keep surprising us each week. No bookings makes it great for a last minute decision too. Seriously had about 100 meals at The Debot on Darby over the past couple of years. Says it all. The service is fantastic, it's reasonably priced for the high quality food, and it's a great place to watch the world go by.

“Sunday Morning Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

After eating at the Beaumont depot on Friday night, we walked in with high expectations, and we were not let down. After eating at most of the other cafe's on Darby street for breakfast, it's good to see that somewhere on the strip knows how to do a real breakfast, not just a greasy pile of eggs and bacon. Service was fast, staff were friendly and food was more then amazing. Living out near the lake, it takes a lot to drag me into town, but this has quickly become my new favorite place for a Sunday morning treat.

“AH-MAZE-ING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014 via mobile

We visited the Depot on Darby last night with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday and it couldn't have gone better. The service was unbelievable, the food was delicious and the paying system at the register made it super easy when it came to splitting the bill. Will definitely be back. Thanks again.

“Best for Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

This has rapidly become a favourite for a weekend breakfast. The breakfast menu is varied and tasty and the wait staff are always friendly and helpful. They are also great with children and have a kids menu that doubles as a colouring in page to help keep them busy. I've tried the dinner too and whilst the service is the same the food isn't as good as it is at breakfast.
