OK, they do NOT have homemade corned beef hash, usually a standard of mine for breakfast greatness. BUT, they make up for it by offering a pancake as a side to their eggs and bacon. Good home fries. And the maple-butter is a nice, custom touch. Worth finding!

This is a family favorite for breakfast. The owners are outgoing, upbeat, happy to serve. Homemade Hungarian recipes and even breads and muffins, who can resist? And the little train that runs around above the diners is always a hit for our grandson. Great prices, great food, great people.

Had breakfast here for the first time this week. We we greeted warmly and had a good cup of coffee in front of us as quick as we could sit down. I had an omelet with a side of HOUSE MADE chorizo sausage, excellent. They actually make a few different types of sausage in house. My colleague had the eggs... More

The All Aboard (with the Hungarian Sausage) and the Monte Depot are amazing! Make sure to get the special butter for the pancakes 😊 the service was amazing as well and the owners are so friendly!

Tiny lil spot, quick turnover on tables (bar). Wicked friendly staff who clearly know and love their regulars. Stopped in on a trip back from hampton beach on a rainy sunday, and they slayed it. Homemade sausgage is wicked good in the scramble i had. Tons of love from Jimbo and the boston pizza tours!

The Little Depot Diner is my idea of a perfect spot for breakfast. From the first smile and "come on in," to the delicious home made chorizo, to the friendly customers -- seriously the best! I love local, friendly and not expensive. This diner is all of those. My husband loves diners. Enough said. Don't do it if you want... More

Ate here while 9 months pregnant with my husband. Couldn't fit my belly at the booth. Extremely small. Good for anyone. Food portion was small for the price. My bill shocked me, considering what small amount of food was ordered. Better diners in Peabody. #Familyfair in Peabody is great.

Went there three consecutive days we were in the area. Small place but very friendly atmosphere. 1st day we were greeted very nicely by Alicia and Sam Food was great. Service was excellent. Sam and Alicia made us feel like old friends from the start. Prices were good. Highly recommend!!!

It is small with only counter stools. The two girls behind the counter are just perfect. Friendly, personable and attentive and just plain nice. I had the Greek omelet and it was great. Make sure you order your toast dry and ask for their maple cinnamon butter!

My niece decided to have breakfast here. The food was great, the staff was a hoot. I think I may have been the only person in the restaurant the staff wasn't on a first name basis.
