This is a nice place with the really cool vibe and great food. Amber was my server and she really did a great job. I'm not in this area very much but if I am again I will be sure to go back

Anytime I go to Rochester, I always go to Magnolias! They have a wide variety of soups, salads, sandwiches and the best desserts around! My favorite is the University Sandwich. Everything I have tried there is great but I always go back to my favorite.

Eaten here a few times, but this last time I wasn't thrilled. The soup was lukewarm and the avocado on my salad was brown. Rochester has a great food scene, can't afford to be hit or miss
