About Depot

There’s an energy and passion about Depot. Not overly precious or pretentious – just fast, fun and fresh.

The perfect place to drop in and refuel. It’s chef Al Brown’s place and reflects perfectly his attitude towards food: in season, beautifully cooked, to be enjoyed with friends. Al’s joined by Kyle Street in the kitchen and Joe Williams and Warren Ford out the front.

Most of the cooking is over charcoal or hard wood so there’s a real succulence to the flavours.  Order a selection of small plates and pass them round. Try the freshly shucked oysters. Then there’s the wine list – small, but perfectly formed, with many of Al’s top picks. Park yourself up.

Coffee served every day from 7am.


 Getting a Table


We have no reservations, which also applies to groups.

Tables frequently turn over, so don't fear, you wont go home with a rumbling belly!

There can be prolonged wait times for our larger tables.  The largest

of which seats 10. Be early!


Celebrating? Depot does not allow BYO Cakes.

Fear not, we can stick a candle in most things

and can even slap a message up on our blackboard

drop us a line.
