The Depot Coffee House

What is the Depot?

The Depot is a renovated train depot in Hopkins, Minnesota that now serves as a coffee house, youth community project, and trailhead for area bike trails. It was planned and opened by area students and their allies in 1998 to create a chemically-free environment for teens.

The Depot also serves as an important asset to the community by providing students all over the west Metro an opportunity to create their own place to learn, relax, and have fun while directing both a coffee shop and an entertainment venue. Learn more about the Depot Board of Directors.
