Ryan and I love going to the New England area every fall. A little apple picking and a few lobster rolls can really do wonders for one’s soul. We think so anyways...
On our way back this year we decided to grab lunch in Peabody (pronounced pee-bidy), MA. One of our friends did a little research and found The Little Depot Diner. The menu looked good, typical diner food. The space unique as the restaurant is set in an old train car (see images below). There’s only one long bar so seating is tight but cozy. As soon as you walk in the door your feel beyond loved. The girls behind the counter were friendly, spunky and just plain cool. Once room was made for us at the bar, the ordering began.
They offer breakfast all day as well as some tasty lunch options. We were informed they serve farm fresh milk and eggs so Ryan and our friends opted for breakfast items. I decided on the tuna melt. Service was quick. We had our monstrous plates within about 10 minutes. The place is a bargin at $7-$8 per head. Our friend’s raved about the pancakes and eggs and Ryan was over the moon for his sausage and baked beans. My tuna melt was insane.
Between the delicious (and cheap) food and fantastic service, we'll definitely be back next year.
Note: There’s no public restroom and it’s cash only. No reservations obviously.
Thank you Alicia and Jade! We’ll see you ladies next year.
A teeny tiny space with only one long bar. No tables.
My friend's huge, fluffy pancake with maple butter. Didn't even need the syrup.
My enormous tuna melt loaded with all the fixin's. They use a gooey, white American cheese that sets off the sandwich perfectly. Get the American cheese.
Ryan's Hungarian sausage with eggs, rye bread and The Depot's signature baked beans.
The sweetest little ending to a delightful lunch in Peabody, MA.
