About The Diner

Deemed by our customers As the “Cheers of Diners” , we truly know e everybody’s name . If we don’t know ya, we wanna know ya! Our diner is a 15 stool Worcester Lunch Car built in 1929. It was first located in the surrounding towns Danvers & Lynn before making its final stop in Peabody, it’s present day location. Along with the stools, the floor & others parts of the diner are still the original structure — 1929 baby!

MSN: The Little Depot Diner – Best in Massachusetts

Massachusetts is chock-full of charming, nostalgia-inducing diners but The Little Depot Dinertops the list. The cash-only Peabody diner only seats 15 people at a time but is worth the wait, especially for its blueberry pancakes and banana bread with the special butter sauce.
