Good breakfast

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.

We went there on a weekend for breakfast in familly(with our 2 kids). It was great there was other choice then the standard(egg,bacon, potatoes). Kids meal was excellent size vs price as for adult. Coffee was not the best ever just regular, I was expecting something better. Service was great, the lady event try to speak French with kids. We... More

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.

First, Do not eat here! I ordered the chicken, a 12 dollar meal, and received one small chicken thigh, bone in, for that price. I was expecting a decently sized chicken breast, in other words, a full meal. I honestly thought there had been a mistake and they had forgotten a portion of my food when the plate finally came...

We had a great breakfast at Magnolia after a ride on the Digby ferry. Crab cake eggs benedict were delicious and the rest of our party loved their meals, too (other versions of the eggs benedict, as well as the breakfast wrap). Good service and reasonable price for a good breakfast. I was told it's one of the few places... More

I've only eaten here twice and both times were for breakfast. Each time I had the crab cake eggs benedict and enjoyed them both times. The creole sauce is very good and balanced and goes very well with the sweetness of the corn bread. The corn bread was a bit on the crumbly side but I'm not sure if this... More

Was in town for the World Curling Event 2014, poor service during brunch hours with only 1 server. Was also fairly expensive for what was given. Very long wait time for coffee/water and we were never asked during the meal if we would like more coffee or water. Salt/Pepper, ketchup and jam also had to be asked for during the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekly Saturday morning breakfast at Magnolia while we were in St, John. The breakfast menu has a number of unique dishes which were all delicious. Service was always great. We felt the staff really appreciated our business. If you go there ask for Jason for top notch service. We also had dinner there several times and... More
