The Little Depot Diner

27 09 2012

A FAN of Food Network? In November of 2009, Guy Fieri of the Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives” featured The Little Depot Diner, focusing on such items as mulligatawny soup and Boston baked beans.¬†If you’re making a trip to Salem, Ma this Halloween season, you should definitely stop by The Little Depot Diner in Peabody Square.

The Little Depot is a 1929 Worcester Lunch Car with 13 stools. This cute lunch car is only open on weekends from 7am-1am. Be sure to bring cash and use the restroom prior or else…


I thought about ordering the Train Wreck to see the Little Depot Train go around the diner, but I don’t do poached eggs. I opted for Hungry Hobo Hash. Man O man, was I glad to have order it! The corned beef hash is to die for.

Along with the wonderful breakfast was the hospitality. Judy was very hospitable and gave a few tips on our journey into Salem. It was certainly a delight with the warm welcome by everyone on both sides of the counter.
