This restaurant is a quaint eatery set in the heart of St Francisville. The food here is great and a variety that allows anyone to find something they desire. The service is on time and very personable. Be sure and save room for some bread pudding or at least a cookie.

This is a hidden gem of resturaunts in St. Francisville. The place is fairly small but is worth the wait depending on what time of day it is. Good food..

Wow, we loved this place. A very quaint / hole in the wall restaurant with really great food. I had the BLT - Magnolia style, my wife had the French Dip Po-boy and we split the cheesy fries. All of it was great and very inexpensive. A must do if in St. Francisville touring the plantation homes in the area.

My wife and I had heard a lot of good things about the Magnolia Cafe and were looking forward to a great meal; boy were we surprised. The food was fair and the service was poor. I'm sorry we passed up a couple of other places to have lunch there.

This is the second time we have visited historical St. Francisville, Louisiana, so we had a handle for the territory. The first time, a few years ago, we only knew what we read on the Internet and in the travel guidebooks. For starters, we had a list of antebellum plantations to visit. But where to eat? Virtually all of the... More

We stopped here on Sunday after closing time. We were disappointed as our Great River Road guidebook had highly recommended this place. Luckily we were still around St Francisville on Monday and were able to have lunch. We had a burger, sweet potato fries, and the famous turkey sandwich on toasted pita. The turkey was excellent. Highly recommend it. The... More
