Carrot cake is delicious

We walked by looking for dessert and the carrot cake was the perfect answer. When we walked up we thought it was closed so almost missed out on a great finish to our night in Saint John

I hate eating breakfast, but I swear I can never say that again after eating here. This breakfast was like nothing I have ever experienced. I am a huge addict of hot sauce and ketchup, but for this meal I used NEITHER! What?! I got eggs benedict with avocado, sweet potato & creole sauce (don't like hollandaise) all on top... More

I have only ever eaten breakfast here so I cannot comment on the lunch and dinner menu, but their breakfast is so good. I almost always get the poached eggs, which have some unique combinations like avocado and sweet potato chips, and sausage and apple- served on cornbread, which is different and delicious. My SO often gets the omelet or... More

The cafe is a fantastic place for breakfast! Stopped in recently on a beautiful morning and sat in a booth beside an open window to enjoy our meal. We ordered up two versions of egg Benedict. One with crab cakes and one with apples and cheese. They were awesome! Fantastic breakfast made so much better with the beautiful setting! Well... More

Magnolia is a Louisiana-themed café in the historic "Uptown" district of St. John. It is comfortable and the breakfast menu and service are very good.

I was going just to have a coffee and leave, but when I was ordering it was playing such a good music (90ies) in the speakers that I decided to stay. The coffee and cookie were very good too.

I was starved and wanted something fast. I ordered the Bourbon Quarter breakfast sandwich with homefries and it DID NOT dissapoint. The sandwich was simple: English muffin, egg, maple bacon, arugula and some tomato with a spicy cajun mayo sauce. Hit the spot, fast service and the price was right. Staff very knowledgeable and efficient.
