Mister Chris’ Coffee Gallery & Depot is located inside the historic Atlantic Coast Line Train Depot located in Frostproof.

Mister Chris Coffee Gallery & Historic Train Depot

The historic Atlantic Coast Line Train Depot was built in Frostproof in 1912 with the construction process of the railroad beginning in 1911. There was much excitement for the arrival of the railroad and all the opportunities it would offer the Frostproof pioneers. In the past, the Historic Train Depot supported citrus farmers from across the Ridge and now it supports smallholder coffee farmers from across the globe. Mister Chris fresh roasts coffee inside this historic location and ships it around the Continental United States for all to enjoy. This helps with the upkeep and maintenance of this Historic Landmark. 

Inside the Depot you’ll learn more about the history and enjoy local art, antiques, music and entertainment, community and uncommonly, great coffee. The restoration of this historic landmark was the creative outpouring of Chris Drake, owner and operator of Mister Chris’ Coffee Gallery & Depot, with the help of his friends and team. There are four basic themes that guide the Depot and the creative process: History, Music, Art, & Coffee.

Whether you are a part of a group or self guided tour you will take a sentimental journey back into your childhood with whimsical, playful, unique and awe-inspiring nick-nacks that keep you excited for what’s next or what’s around the corner. There are 6 rooms for you to peruse including the Hall of History, the Brew Ha Ha, the Study, the Paris Cafe, the Music Room and the Workshop which is the brew bar, gift shop and entertainment area. The workshop was once the Cargo area of the Depot. As a guest you can also enjoy the (almost) two acre Freedom Station Park where events are hosted such as the “Wall Street Market in Freedom Station Park” and the “Mister Chris’ Community Campfire” series. Mister Chris’ Coffee Depot and Freedom Station Park is also an Event Venue and is available for rent for your special events. Contact us for more information.
