Looks like surface spalling due to any number of reasons.   I would not waste the money on any fancy overlays, coatings, patching material, etc. as they will likely not last very long.   Just live with it, keep it swept up, and if it bothers you too bad have it taken out and replaced with a properly finished slab.

What's the scale of that picture? It looks like a zoomed in picture of an area that is spalling.  Like Fishindude said, I wouldn't waste money trying to fix it. If for some reason you are rolling things over that area often and need it perfectly smooth, I would epoxy in the divot after thoroughly cleaning it out.

All concrete will crack at some point. It can't be helped. What professional concrete people do is control where it will crack and how the crack behaves so that it doesn't look bad or degrade the performance.

That picture is about a 6"x6" area.  I've been sweeping up as needed.  Thanks for both of your responses!

6 x 6" is a pretty big spall. I'm guessing there was some defect there. Do you happen to be someplace where your garage floor reaches freezing temperatures?
