Nice place to just sit and relax after walking around downtown Mill Valley. Always seems to have a little something going on. Clean and inviting. Good meeting place.

A great place to hang out after hiking a double dipsea. The Depot always has something delicious to eat. Take in the downtown MV vibe.

Lytton Square, usually called Depot Square by locals, is the perfect place to meet friends for a coffee before a day of hiking, biking or shopping in Mill Valley. At the end of theday there is no better place to sit and plan where to go for dinner or a drink.

Lytton Square is Mill Valley; the Redwood trees, the Gravity Car from Mt. Tam, the sun shining; nearby shops and Peets Coffee just across the street.
