The food and coffee were good but nothing amazing. Service was slow. Very nice ambiance and atmosphere. It cost us $60 for breakfast which is insane. Not sure we will come back.

Great morning for breakfast outside. Cheese and fruit plate, banana bread, oatmeal pancakes. Fresh squeezed juice and attentive service. Had been here a few years ago and nice to find it is still a pleasant spot.

My two favorite meals are crab cakes and eggs benedict. At Magnolia, you can get the two together—and it's delicious. Pair it with a bloody mary and who needs anything more? The dining room is well laid out, with high booths and several cozy nooks.
