I never knew a simple bacon and egg can taste that good. Its a bit on the pricey side, but having it once in a while won't hurt. Definitely coming back for another Doona.

Loved this place, we came in a large group for diner. The vegetarian options didn’t look like much but were absolutely delicious I thoroughly enjoyed it. Very inventive and interesting. Great service and atmosphere. One of the best meals I’ve eaten in a while.

Decided to have a late lunch one Saturday afternoon - ordered the barbecue pork sliders and large share plate with some drinks. More than enough for a not so hungry couple. Good food and the restaurants was crowded.

The food is good and the place is always buzzing with the after work crowd but I just can’t get over the beers are served in cans mostly. It’s like going to a restaurant and having a can of coke put on the table. The...More

We love the Depot, so delicious, relaxed, welcoming. We mainly go for lunch, as very hard to get in for dinner and you normally have to wait for a table. Depot is very casual, that’s what we like about it. Share plates, so you can...More

We had an amazing night at Depot, the staff are so attentive. Pays to be happy to sit anywhere otherwise you could face a wait of up to an hour and a half to be seated. Relaxed seating at bar leaners, pretty noisy when you...More

Hi, if you mean, can my toddler run around, then no. However, if they sit with you, then I would think that would be fine. I think there was a family with a toddler and one in a pram on the day we were there for breakfast... More

Opens early for breakfast - try the beignets with a coffee and is pretty much open all day; gets crowded from 5.30pm really when the local office workers drop by. A really good spot!
