Extremely friendly owner makes great food. It's fresh and healthy. Small grocery section is nice but a little pricey but it is gourmet items. Fairly good wine selection. Awesome cupcakes!! I get my stuff to go and it is package well and makes it home without a mess.

I have eaten here several times before and always really enjoyed it. This time was a little different. We were underwhelmed by the food and the service was extremely slow. Not sure that we are too interested in returning anytime soon.

My wife and I always stop here for lunch and have never been disappointed. The soup and sandwiches are good and the selection of speciality wine selection is good

Food is great and reasonable. offers a wide variety. Good desserts too. Beer, wine and limeade during the summer are available as well as lots of different non-alcoholic drinks. Patio or inside seating.

So convenient and dependably good is Magnolia that we have a hard time remembering what life was like for us before we could rely on its array of sandwiches, entrees, and--alas--magnificent sweets, especially cupcakes. I suppose not everything is wonderful all the time, but it mostly is. We just had some perfect gazpacho this weekend, along with summer salads. Over... More

sun dried tomoto rissotto is a favorite. Such a different selection each week and it is so hard to choose. Very nice wine selection to buy by the bottle.

An easy choice since our B&B was only a block away...and we were not disappointed. Very clean and nice, a perfect little shop. We picked up some craft beer, a bottle of wine, some Christmas gifts, coffee w/dessert and a bag of goodies. After checking in to our B&B and getting settled, we decided that Magnolia would be our dinner... More

Some weird combinations on the menu. Breads never taste fresh . Lemon pound cake and cookies are always good.

Perhaps putting a sandwich in a purple paper gift bag is supposed to make it amazing, but at my house we don't eat the wrapping. They could spend a bit less on the wrapping (while keeping it nice) and charge a bit less for their very average sandwiches. I got a sandwich on a palid and pasty baguette that tasted... More
