We go to the Depot on a regular basis. The food is always consistent, hot and quick. I'm not sure how they manage to get your breakfast out so quickly weather they are busy or not.

Always good, always fast, great price, there's really nothing bad to say about it. Busy or slow, you get your meal at the same speed. 100% recommend.

We have found the Bus Depot Cafe to have best cooked bacon and eggs and my favourite hash browns anywhere around here. Their prices cannot be beat. It is a local favourite for those in the know around here.

I am not sure why people eat here except they are drunk or hung over. I have a few friends who swear by the breakfast here but I don't get it. A typical type of bus station restaurant. It's terrible consistently. There are so many other great places to eat... Okay it's cheap but so what? I can sell you... More

Used to eat here a lot, great breakfast, excellent price, but not consistent. How hard could it be to replicate bacon, eggs, and hashbrowns?

Great Food at an even better price. Used to do breakfast at Denny's until I discovered this gem. The couple running the cafe even remember my favorite order for me so unless I want something else they get it started right away for me! You have to try the hashbrowns sooooo good!

This place is surprisingly good for a bus depot......but probably not as good as the old days when it used to win awards for best breakfast. If you're looking for something healthy, don't go there. But if you like a substantial greasy breakfast with copious amounts of bacon, sausage, etc........and the eggs prepared pretty darn well.....and you don't want to... More

I only ate here once. The food was OK and probably better than you would find at most bus depots.
