We went to Magnolia Foods as we were passing through Lynchburg. The sandwiches were good and reasonably priced. We also got the bread pudding and lemon bars, which were delicious. Would definitely go again the next time we are in Lynchburg.

High end cafe with local feel. Lots of delicious prepared food, great coffee. Also a collection of many baskets of different styles/sizes with huge collection of specialty foods to assemble personalized gift baskets. Nice indoor and outdoor seating areas, easy parking.

Lately, I am obsessed with this place. I've been three times in the past week alone. The food is always fresh and delicious and don't even get me started on the carrot cake. It is absolutely to die for. They also have a wide variety of wines, beers, and hard ciders. It's a really fun place to have lunch!

Stopped in for a to-go lunch with a friend. I ordered the curry chicken sandwich with mango chutney on pumpernickel for nearly $7. The sandwich was good but kinda surprised that it didn't come with at least a pickle for that price. I know they make all their food their but this chicken salad resembled canned mushy chicken texture instead... More

Magnolia has established itself as "the" place to go on Friday afternoons for a professional wine tasting, a snack that can be an early dinner, and a chance to take home wine or food. I also go there for a quiet place in late morning or mid-afternoon for coffee and a snack. There's art to look at and an attentive... More

I stopped in to buy a hostess gift and spent over $60 in wine, food and other sundries. When I checked out, I asked the cashier if I couldn't buy a gift bag and she said she would put my items in a Magnolia Foods brown bag with tissue. That was fine at first, but then I asked if she... More

I go in here all the time to grab a cup of coffee and speak to the hardworking (and always working) employees. The wine and beer selection is wonderful, the atmosphere is unique and bright, and if you want to have a meal or drink on the patio there, you won't be disappointed. Favorite Rivermont Spot.

Looking for a new place for lunch in Lynchburg and found this little gem. I had a turkey and apple sandwich, chips, and a lemon cake to round out my brown bag. It was all very good! The sandwich selection, sides, and desserts are varied with many great choices. The staff was very friendly! Definitely recommend!

This is one of my favorite places for lunch - it's a popular spot, so eating at off-peak hours isn't a bad idea! Delicious choices that change every day. You are never quite sure what you will find in the case each morning! A standard "bag lunch" menu of sandwiches, wraps and salads, and fabulous desserts baked on-site, plus a... More
