Old Depot Coffee Company
The Old Depot Coffee Company (100 N. Commercial St., Seymour, 417-719-5418) is more than just a coffee shop. It’s housed inside the old Frisco train depot, which has been standing since the early 1800s. The Old Depot is a roastery, meaning coffee is roasted on-site. You can also pick up fresh cinnamon rolls made in-house and the shop’s signature, beignet-like Wilma Bread.
Right in the middle of the square in Seymour is a small park, complete with a large gazebo that’s perfect for soaking up the surroundings. Come back later in the year for the annual fall Seymour Apple Festival, which has been held on the square on the second Thursday, Friday and Saturday of September since 1973. It’s the perfect time to soak in plenty of small town charm.
