Efficient if not particularly friendly. Quite awful dried sandwich. Not just lack any butter but dry bread. I always thought USA was great for sandwiches. Obviously exceptions exist.

My family and I went there for a quiet Sunday Brunch and we weren't disappointed! We got omelets which were mouthwatering! And the bakery treats were fantastic! The atmosphere was quaint and relaxed.

We had eggs, grits, crispy bacon and their oatmeal toast. Everything was prepared perfectly. The service was excellent and we enjoyed the nice outdoor seating with a beautiful view. The coffee was good along with the mimosas we had. I totally recommend this restaurant.

Went for lunch the other day. Took my mom there, as she was visiting from VA, and I knew there was enough variety to please us both. It was 12:30 on Sunday, so almost every table was full.

I brought my grandchildren for breakfast on a weekday & we sat outside. Wonderful view, no crowd, attentive waitress. The kids wanted crepes, which were delish!! I had the strata, which was okay. Seemed drowned in cheese which normally I like, but not for breakfast. I like to taste my eggs. We added french toast made with oatmeal. I thought... More

My husband and I chanced upon The Magnolia Cafe. It was a delightful find. At our last visit on a Sunday we discovered 2.00 Mimosas and Bloody Mary's! The flowers superb. All local , fresh made biscuits. This will definitely be our go to breakfast whenever we are in the area.

Nice view of the Bay. Lunch only. Great salads and sandwiches. Nice place to meet the girls for lunch. Gift shop all around can make it cluttered. Sumptious desserts.
