From the minute we walked in to when we left, customer service was great! I had the signature creamy tomato soup with artichokes topped with crostini. It was delicious and nice and hot. My dining companion had the magno cristo (ham, bacon swiss, mushrooms and tomatoes and honey mustard on grilled sourdough) with chips. He said it was very good.... More

My wife and I had such a wonderful memory of Magnolia's deli and cafe that we planned our second visit to Rochester around a lunch at Magnolia's. As last year we ate very well in this very picturesque and comfortable cafe. Excellent service by young women who almost anticipated our wishes. The food is carefully prepared and very tasty. The...

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

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
