I came in here for the first time in March 2014 and was quite impressed by what I found. This is definitely a coffeehouse and I bet the first Starbucks resembled the Coffee Depot. Its to be found in an older building, and has some relics of its past use in its abundance of wall and ceiling outlets, probably one every two feet (which is very close by even contemporary standards). The paneled walls and high ceiling is nice. There is comfortable seating in various forms: high top bar seating by the windows, pairs of comfortable chairs, four and six person tables.
I bought a coffee (I had limited cash so I couldn't buy anything else - nor am I one to use an ATM machine because of those fees) and was asked whether I wanted it to go in a cup or for here which is served in a nice porcelain mug. The mug is large enough to wrap both hands around it in that "warming your hands" type of look. The coffee was very good. I also liked how they offered clean spoons to mix the sugar and cream in (far better than throwing out those wooden stirrers).
The atmosphere was interesting at coffee depot, and might have a few nods to the other reviews mentioned here. I would say the mood of the space was FAR different from any other coffee place I had been in. This could be a good trait or a bad trait depending on how you look at it. Everywhere I looked there were people working, reading, or talking together; but the mood of the space just felt intellectual. There were two couples talking and just the air of the place made it seem like there was groundbreaking things to be talked about.
If you didn't bring a book or something to do with you, Coffee Depot provides books, newspapers and magazines for the customers to read, and even pens if you forgot one; which is a very nice feature. Basically, I would recommend Coffee Depot for the coffee and the nice space but would recommend bringing cash and perhaps something to do if you are staying with your coffee.
