The Union Depot was a train station located in Lansing, MI. The Union Depot began passenger service for the Michigan Central and Pere Marquette Railroads in 1902. The Detroit architectural firm of Spier and Rohns, which planned many Michigan Central stations, designed the building with Chateauesque conical towers and cut stone arches. The depot closed in 1972.

In 1978, Restaurateur Peter Jubeck bought the building and transformed it into Clara's Restaurant. Retaining the quarter-sawn oak interior and installing locally crafted stained glass windows, the restaurant has a unique and historical atmosphere.

In 1999, two old passenger rail cars were renovated and attached to the building, adding more space and more atmosphere.
