We live nearby and had never been here -- till Sunday. It was excellent! We came for breakfast which was delicious and ample (I took half mine home for Monday's lunch!). We ate in the garden -- comfortable even in December. I had the Dungeness crab/ avocado benedict which was great -- really fresh crab and a light hollandaise. The... More

I hate to give a poor rating to any restaurant based on just one meal. But, I ordered the Cobb Salad with grilled chicken, and the chicken was breaded. I've never had breaded grilled chicken. The bacon was thick cut and served on the salad in huge (over one inch pieces). Very chewy. The rest of the salad was good.... More

We were a big family group descending without warning on this quiet restaurant. Everyone's breakfast was great, and service was friendly, fast and attentive.

We tried Depot Garden for breakfast this morning. They have a good breakfast menu (but be aware that Benedicts are only offered on weekends) with lots of options, including choices for a light eater. My husband had eggs, potatoes, and bacon, which he enjoyed - and I had a chili omelet, which was perfect. So often, when we order, something... More

I have been going to the Depot for years. It's seriously my FAVORITE breakfast spot in Marin County!! The service is always excellent and the food is the best. They have the fluffiest pancakes ever and their eggs Benedict is super yummy!! If you haven't tried this place, try it ASAP!! They also have great lunches.

Depot Garden has a nice outdoor patio. It has a good menu and a lot of variety. I enjoy the vegie burger with sweet potato fries and eggs benedict. It can get busy, so you might have to wait and I hope you believe it was worth the wait. Service is good and very friendly. If you are in San... More

We had a really great breakfast at the Depot Garden. We arrived around 9:30am on a Saturday morning, and had no trouble getting a table on the patio (my daughter brought her dog). The staff personally came out to visit with the puppy and offered him a bowl of water. So nice! Fresh squeezed OJ was awesome. I had the... More

My weekly lunch group when here for lunch. I had a BLT... The bacon was over cooked! And I don't mean crispy, I mean hard as a rock! There was a sliver of tomato on stale toast. Soda was $2.25 a can (Costco sells it for $.26 a can). I was in the restroom 4 times that afternoon... I spare... More

I don't know how I have never heard about this place. We are out having Brakfast/Brunch every weekend in Marin and Sonoma Counties, and have only recently heard about the Garden Depot. I had bacon, cheddar omelet that was as good as it gets. You can even have Hollandaise souce in it! My partner had a California Benedict, which of... More
