Visited for breakfast on my wives birthday with the family. Four of the meals were brought out and the 5th one arrived 20 minutes later. Apparently the pancakes didn't look cooked! We finished the meal and paid the bill. On our way home we realised that we had been overcharged approximately $30 on the bill. We contacted the manager and... More

Admittedly I could have opted for a range of extras, but to present two small eggs on a large plate with two slices of unbuttered toast.. Even a small amount... More

Comprehensive menu with numerous beverage options so something for everyone on the Depot menu. A really nice vibe about this place and certainly... More

It was Easter Monday and there were only a few places open and this was one of them. It is bistro food and you get a good quantity so you won't go hungry. The quality around the table varied but there was nothing fantastic. My steak sandwich was a bit over cooked and chewy when asked for medium rare. However... More
