The soup I had was delicious and the bread & oil were great with the wine we had. Just so nice to sit and relax at this small sweet place.

What a little gem on the northeast side of the City of Rochester in an area called Oxford. My daughter just moved into this neighborhood, an artsy area with students, young and old people alike. Reminds me of NYC's Upper East Side (except this one has houses instead of apartments). Atmosphere is that of a European cafe, with indoor and... More

A group of 4 to 8 of us go out every Thursday for lunch - a group of co-workers. Luckily, we chose this place as our first outing. The great sandwiches here have set a high bar for comparing food and service at the rest of the Park Avenue establishments we are visiting and reviewing. Everyone in the group commented... More

Hands down best soup and salad options! Their sandwiches are great too! If you are looking for a large salad, this is my go to place! You must try!

Visited on the day of the huge craft fair in front of restaurant. Service was prompt and accurate! Salads looked delicious going by us to other tables! Our soup was soooo good! Everyone's sandwiches were great! Will definitely be back!

One of my favorite Rochester staples. Delicious food, adorable space, and you can't beat having lunch where Barrack Obama visited.

Fun place to sit outside and enjoy cafe dining. Great sandwiches and sides. The salads are huge and very different. Dined with friends and one of our party ordered pizza. Not something I would recommend, very stringy and not up to real pizza that can be had in Rochester.

I was in Rochester visiting a friend for Rochester Pride parade and we stood in front of Magnolia's and my friend said President Obama had visited and had lunch here. Suggested we have lunch and tried their signature soup, Cream of Tomato Artichoke cheddar soup... was not disappointed at all, silky smooth, flavorful and vegetarian too. A great place to... More

Four of us had lunch at Magnolia's over the weekend and felt the food was average. Two of us had pizza and I had to use a napkin to remove the oil from the top of the pizza.

Have been here a couple of times. No wait even though it was busy. Great service. The menu has so many different items including apps, salads, sandwiches, paninis, wrapped. They serve breakfast. Good size portions. Lots for the vegetarian. Have a delightful dessert case which I couldn't partake in much to my disappointment. Prices very reasonable. Good coffee. Some tables... More
