Great little (15 seats at the counter!) diner. Staff was great...very personable and attentive. Breakfast was delicious....Hungarian sausage very good...I especially liked the fact there were no fillers or preservatives. We just had basic eggs and toast with that, and my husband had the hash, which he said was very good. Wish we lived in MA...we would definitely be regulars!

My boyfriend decided to treat me to breakfast and I chose to check this place out since he lived pretty close. The staff was super welcoming and you can tell most of the customers were regulars. The breakfast was on point with the homemade hungarian sausage to the belgian waffles! Please check this little place out!

My wife and I saw a review of this diner on TV and figured one day we would try it. Today we had to leave the house early and were looking for a place to have breakfast. This was my first time here and we came for breakfast. Good atmosphere, great blues tunes, excellent food. We were greeted and asked... More

Very tasty, fresh breakfast. House made Hungarian sausage scramble = on the money. Hubs had French toast with "special butter" and he gave 2 thumbs up; son had traditional Benedict and he cleaned his plate. Also sampled the special hash and it was perfect! Crispy edges and soft savory middle. "Best in the world" chocolate milk. All in a quaint,... More

My husband Adam and I go often to the Depot.. We get greeted by name. Even if there is a wait... it is worth it, you will get served a cup of coffee and Alicia will keep you updated. It is a fun place to go. Everyone at the counter talks to each other or to the girls, or the... More

My daughter googled "Best Place to eat Breakfast in Peabody" and this little gem popped up on her smartphone. I am so glad I took my kids here. The diner is SO SMALL (sits 15 guests MAX), but its big on taste and character. It sits right next to the railroad tracks. They greet you with free cups of coffee... More

Wow! What a nice breakfast. Eggs Benedict with home fries excellent. Pancakes with Carmel maple butter was terrific. Counter style cozy place and friendly owners. Highly recommend if you're anywhere near this area. 10 on a scale of 10! Ps. Good tunes too. Breakfast with the Blues.
