Been to Depot a few times and if you want a seat be there early like before 6pm for the yummy selection of grills, tapas and nibbles. Took the family there for a meal and we really enjoyed the evening with friendly & attentive staff.

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!
