I have been here several times with work friends for lunch. The Depot never fails to exceed my expectations. It's in the revitalized downtown area and boasts a variety of foods and beverages not found elsewhere in Hattiesburg. I had a Cobb salad this time (featuring pickled red onions), and I fully recommend giving it a try. Grabbed a coffee... More

Stopped here for lunch, a little pricey but was hoping the food quality made it worth it....not so much. Ordered the roast beef sandwich($12), for this price it should melt in your mouth.....meat was tough/chewy/dry. Came with a side, got the gouda grits...nothin special, not much cheesy flavor. Added a side of tomato soup, good but again pretty basic. Did... More

The Good: unique, local, great coffee, great decor, art The Bad: few snacks, odd service This is a neat place in a central location near the old train depot. The coffee was very, very good with interesting lattes. There seems to be a full lunch menu with interesting choices but we were just passing through. We did not have many... More

The coffee was great, nice selection but the house brew was just a good. The selection for breakfast was short but tasty. It was nice to not have a large selection to have to browse through. The decor was great with hand painted pictures on the wall. It was a bit pricey but still worth the occasional visit!!!

The sausage, egg and jalapeño sandwich is off the hook! Incredible bread and super flavorful jalapeño cheddar cheese. I can't wait to come back for lunch.

The Depot is the perfect quaint and quintessential cafe. The upstairs balcony is the best part about the venue. It is ideal for studying, talking, and/or leisure reading. The food is amazing. All of the ingredients are of a quality that you can distinctly taste. So take note that it is high quality food and therefore a little expensive. I... More

We get to the Depot Coffee House at least once every time we visit H'burg. Their bacon, egg & cheese sandwich is delicious and filling.

The coffee was phenomenal I went back for a second. The facilities are perfect for studying. Food was better than the coffee somehow and to top it off the staff was SUPER friendly. Couldn't complain about anything. The apple caramel muffin was delicious. The BLT was great and even the potato salad. The Americano gets two thumbs up from this... More

They open early, and it is a good place to relax. Anywhere you sit in this place can be great -- outdoors, window counter, easy chairs downstairs, or the secluded area upstairs. I find the prices are a little higher than what I would pay at other coffeehouses, BUT the food is fixed on the premises and is more gourmet... More
