“Delicious Meal at a reasonable price”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

My daughter, a friend, and two grand children visited the Magnolia Cafe for lunch.
With the little ones in tow, we decided to sit on the patio and enjoy our lunch. We walked back to the counter and ordered three adult meals and one child's bowl. The adult meals were all excellent. The three we ordered were the organic tomato quiche, the steak sandwich, and the chicken sandwich with pesto. Each plate came with a side salad, The food was wonderful. My grand daughter got a chicken and rice bowl. Unfortunately she did not like it and ate very little. However, she is a picky three yea old. We ordered water and lemonade for drinks and when they brought the food to us, they brought a carafe of lemonade and left it at the table.
The atmosphere was wonder,the food was fresh and flavorful and we left with a bill of just under $40. I would definitely recommend this friendly restaurant.

“Unusual offerings, dog friendly”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

My husband had the Phillipino breakfast bowl- liked it, didn't lo9ve it. I had the delicious cornmeal griddle cakes. Would have been even better with an orange slice or 2 on the plate. Appreciated that we could get breakfast later than any other place in Murphys. If you're traveling with your dog, they have a wonderful fenced in courtyard.
