This is a wonderful little bistro. My husband, daughter, her husband, and I often go by for lunch when they visit. My daughter's favorite is Gouda Grilled Cheese and Gouda Grits...a little much on the Gouda for me. I prefer the tomato basil soup with my grilled cheese. The small downstairs dining area is quaint, and as a bonus, It... More

The spinach salad and sweet tea is my favorite. The lunch specials are always tasty and the service is great.

Food was good: soups, salads and sandwiches and fair price. Really cute setting with a store attached. Chai tea latte was so so, probably should have gotten coffee. Overall great place for lunch/brunch.

I've only been to the Depot twice, but I love it. The atmosphere is absolutely perfect. There is a downstairs sitting area and a little loft above where couples or friend groups can sit for some seclusion and privacy. There is so much variety on the menu, and you can try something completely different every time you go. The service... More

We absolutely love the coffee and food at the depot. The atmosphere is unique and a welcomed change from the Starbucks of the world. However, I have been to the Depot a handful of times and have yet to be welcomed by a warm smile. The first time I assumed the staff was busy and that the rush was inhibiting... More

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
