Food was great, staff very friendly and professional, good deal - all leading up to a too crowded environment. Best to get there early for breakfast. Tight parking situation.

We read that the beignet at the The Coffee Depot were supposed to be quite good so after missing out on having some at New Orleans we thought we would give The Coffee Depot a try for afternoon tea when driving from Lafayette to Beaumont on our 4 week road trip (even making a detour off the Interstate to go...

If you like trains this is your place. It's about 10 feet from the railroad tracks and it has a outdoor dining area that's a rail cart. There is also a good history lesson on the walls inside. They serve a good breakfast with eggs any way you want them. They have the best biscuits in town. Boudin Biscuit is... More

Nice cozy restaurant/ coffee shop. Everything was excellent except the waiter. He wasn't to attentive and had to signal him down to get s refill of coffee. Food was excellent. Will be a return customer.

I just LOVE this look place! We were on our way back from FL and couldn't stay in Baton Rouge due to sold out hotels. SO, better yet, let's do Lafayette and the Coffee Depot again! I'm not into repeating business while traveling because there's always more to find but in this case I just had too because my memories... More

Enjoyed a Saturday lunch with great service. Many large families coming in, and they were easily able to be accommodated with staff making big party seating areas. Plenty of open seating. The burgers were great and well seasoned. Fun historic hometown feel with kids and adults alike enjoying the train whistle inside. Closes at 2 pm, so plan ahead!
