Was in Hattiesburg on business and our local friends took us to the Depot for breakfast. Everything was delicious and fresh. I would go back and try some of the lunch options, which looked great.

The lunch salad and sandwich were as good as you will find in a coffee shop anywhere. Fresh, decent price. Had some other interesting things on the menu I'd try if I were in town again. Note It is downtown and not especially convenient if you are looking for a non-chain stop while driving thru Hattiesburg, but that is not... More

We were bicycling in Hattiesburg recently and although there is no bike path leading directly to the center of the older part of town (now under renovation and upgrading), it was worth the drive to find this little bistro. There are a number of sandwiches on the lunch menu, but I opted for the Cesar Salad and one of the... More

This is my absolute favorite lunch spot. The tomato soup is extraordinary, as well as any of the grilled cheese sandwiches (my favorite is crabmeat and Gouda). The atmosphere is inviting and the staff is wonderful. I always make a stop to The Depot when I come home from college for the weekend. Don't miss the buttermilk pie for dessert!

Probably sounding like another culinary neanderthal .. BUT .. the bistro vibe with adjoining gift shop atmosphere kind of leaves me cold and wanting to find a standard coffee shop. Quiche and the coffee of the day was tried for lunch. Food and Service: Good enough .. YET .. I'm guessing a sandwich, bag of chips and a glass of... More

I love this place: ambiance, friendly service, elegant hangout, cool clientele, best coffee in the area. Menu is excellent and food well prepared. Great place for meetings. Building has character and it's very well restored. Parking may be a little limited when they are busy. It's a wee awkward if you have to park across the street. Otherwise, this is... More

I was visiting a dear friend and her family for a couple of days and was invited to have lunch here. The service was wonderful- the staff was attentive and friendly, their service was exclusive- I felt like I was someone they needed to please, not just some customer off the street. The atmosphere was clean, comfortable and upbeat. The... More
