Went here on a whim today and enjoyed our meal and good service. We had one special: corn chowder with fig preserve, arugula and cheddar grilled cheese sandwich. The chowder was more broth-y than creamy but it was good. Had red potatoes and shredded carrots...in addition to corn. We also had the burrito with pulled pork, black beans, avocado and tater tots. I wish the pork had had BBQ sauce on it but I understand why it didn't. The meat was tender.More

Outside dining at this time due to Covid. Food was fabulous and service fine. Not a large location but centrally located. Corn chowder with crab cakes was delicious.

My wife and I had lunch at Sugar Mag today and it was spectacular. I had the smoked salmon panini and a bowl -- get the bowl, not the cup -- of broccoli parmesan soup. Flat out great. Ms. Reviewer had the tuna melt. She's...a tuna melt aficionado, and she put this one at the top of the list. Both came with fruit salads, which were simple, fresh, and great. They have outdoor seating on Main Street and it was dandy. Great place. We did a day trip ride of about 50 minutes to Gloucester, and Sugar Mag was worth the drive by itself. Will be back soon.More

Breakfast was very good. Since covid you have to eat outdoors. They have a tent set up in the street so it is busy and loud. That was the downside.

We really enjoyed our lunch at Sugar Magnolias. My hubby got the lobster BLT special. It was the best he had during our 2 weeks in New England! It was $26 but loaded with huge chunks of lobster meat, almost double what was served on...most $20 lobster rolls. Daughter loved her chicken sandwich with goat cheese and fig and my vegetable omelette was delicious and perfectly cooked. Our dishes were priced around $12 each. Hours are limited 8am-2pm, Monday-Friday only. No indoor seating. Several tables outside.More

We visited in late August on my Birthday. The lobster asparagus benidict was out of this world. Loaded with lobster and a great price. I went hoping to get some coffee cake but that was out. So we settled for scones. Oh my gosh...the most...amazing scones ever. Mine was blueberry lemon and husbands was cranberry. What a perfect birthday "cake". We went back on our way out of town but sadly they are closed on Saturday and Sundays right now. Also the folks there are incredibly kind and helpful. Even had a candle and song with my scone. They do have outside seating. We took ours to go and it all traveled well.More

Stopped in to get takeout breakfast after reading reviews. I was disappointed that two of the items I wanted (after reading reviews) were not available (coffee cake and carrotcake pancakes). The blueberry pancakes and breakfast sandwich I got were both delicious and staff was very...nice.More

OMG! Paradise found, say no more. Crazy food cooked by crazy people who obviously love to create and cook. I had a egg, arugula and fig sandwich WITH a serving of home made coffee cake. The coffee cake is made with shortbread and is kinda...lemony, with cinnamony frosting. Husband had lemon pancakes AND lobster benedict - I know excessive! Lines to get in so don't dither.More

In this case, the MBTA means the train from North Station, and I am not sure where the station is in Gloucester but it is not very near the harbor area of Gloucester where the restaurant is. You would likely need to take a... More
