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.

We saw the Little Depot Diner on Diners, drive-inns and dives. My wife and I have made a habit out of going to places we have seen on DDD whenever we travel. Located only a few minutes from our hotel, The Little Depot Diner did not disappoint. Great staff, friendly customers and great food. We actually went here twice.

Small, local place for a great breakfast. Comfort food well done. The people are friendly and the decor is servable. I had the eggs and they were fine, nice potatoes etc. Nothing special but solid plain food.

The food was very good and plentiful . Order was filled fast. The staff is very friendly, especially the owner, Alicia. They make you feel at home. The breakfast portions are large and come with one side of potatoes, slaw, beans or fruit. When we went, they ran out of potatoes and we waited 15 minutes for them to make... More

I am originally from the east coast and remember eating at these little diners growing up. We always would stop in for breakfast on our road trips and it was special. The older I get, the less you see places like this. I just don't understand it, the CHAIN places have taken over, and the food is so mediocre. My... More

Old school counter service with a tight fit but this is the ambiance, along with quality food. Cash only & made it on Triple D's Show! (3) in our party and every plate was clean. Denver Omelette, Hash with over easy, and a side of their homemade Hungarian sausage and a The Monte Depot sandwich. We were lucky to seat... More

Dropped in for a brunch. Cheerful waitresses guided us to the last two stools. We asked advice as to what to eat. Unhesitatingly they recommended the pulled pork Benedict. So we went for it. Hot coffee immediately in front of us we stopped and chatted to the waitresses who bless them, Started the train that runs around the top of... More
