The toughest thing about dining here is bypassing the breakfast in the evening at dinner time. But we did it and had fabulous quesadillas, salads, and daily special of chicken spitzel with rye breading. Service is always friendly and funky.

Breakfast is my favorite time for Magnolia Cafe especially on a chilly morning. Go inside where it's warm with smells of pancakes, bacon and hot brewed coffee and it all tastes and good as it smells. The menu is loaded with a ton of choices,...More
