Sad to see Hopkins Depot Coffee Shop closing. 

Maybe I'll have to lead one last ride from there before it closes April 2nd...

Unclear if it will still remsin a bike trail head parking lot though?

Definitely a sad day. It was an iconic location and a great place to start a ride.

It's going to be missed.

I always stopped at it.

From Bring Me the News:

The Depot will continue to serve as a trailhead for Three Rivers Park District regional trails. Parking, restrooms, drinking water and a bike repair station will remain available to visitors.

Yes, a sad day indeed. I've stopped at the Depot many times over the years.

Indeed a sad day...I have so many great memories of stopping at Hopkins Depot while cycling through on TCBC rides.
