Welcome to Depression Cafe.

The Monday Blues Special
has been discontinued
as of your arrival.

Your choices are limited:

Torment Salad with Prozak Vinagrette
Leaves of Melancholy
Roots of Despair with a dash of Disassociation
Chopped Depression tossed in a black bowl of Self Doubt
Criticism Cake with Rejection icing....

Your credit check found you noncreditable.
Address complaints to your mother and father who will promptly return them unopened.
Outbursts of anguish will not be tolerated.

We are not responsible.
