“Roscoe's Coffee Bar and Tap Room!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Great laid back coffee house / deli / local pub. Good, well-priced sandwiches and breakfast bagel. Good coffee. I did not visit at night, but it looks like a good place for local beer, a board game, live music, or joining friendly others you meet there.

“Not yet fully developed”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

We toured the area. The general store was interesting enough, but not as amazing as advertised. There were only a few other stores, and some of them were difficult to access due to obstacles on the sidewalks. The former hardware factory converted into a furniture store was of historical interest. The train depot itself is vacant and perhaps will provide future development. Currently, the area is a quick stop.

“A fun place to spend an afternoon”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Looking for a fun and funky area to check out, then you must stroll through Richmond’s historic depot district. This is where you'll find several locally owned restaurants from smoked BBQ to upscale cuisine. I loved the cute boutique and kitchen store next to Ghyslain Chocolatier. There’s an old fashioned general store, Italian Market, antique shop, folk-art store, book store, coffee shop and a really cool furniture store that really should be a museum. I guess the owner use to be an auctioneer and has a lot of his collections on display. There is also a Model T Museum for the guys to check out. Murals are everywhere you look. I counted at least twelve! This is a really cool place to spend an afternoon.
