The Café has been newly renovated and under new management . It is fresh, attractive and cozy. The service staff were attentive and personable, and the food was delicious. The greek salad and red pepper soup were the best. I also had a broiled cod dinner which was tender and tasty. I can't wait to go back.

Been to the Cafe many times. Entrees are excellently prepared and scrumptious. For anyone who may dine at the Cafe, make sure you get the salad that contains the fresh strawberries. I believe it is called Jessicas salad.

Old home repurposed as a restaurant. Atmosphere is nice and friendly with excellent service. Hummus appetizer is very good. Pork chop was average. Overall food is better than average. It is BYOB which is great.

I was a regular. The food declined. I stopped going until a neighbor told me there was a new chef. Started back during the summer and the food was better. Last week I ordered my favorite dish and it was not prepared well. How can a kitchen do that? How can a longtime waitress deliver a dish that looks so different from the norm?

I was excited about trying this restaurant. It's been on my radar since the re-opening phase of the quarantine. We had a 6pm reservation. When we arrived we were asked if we want to dine inside or outside. We chose inside due to the 90 degree heat. I wish now we would've chosen outside. The establishment itself is nice. I am not a clean freak but I really felt that the decor and finishing/furniture needed a good deep clean. There was visible dust and dirt on the mirror and lighting within the dining room and the bathrooms were a terrible mess. To add to that there were multiple fly's and gnats bothering us through the entire meal. My entree was very tasty and satisfactory but my husband ordered the Key West Scallops and they had zero taste. No seasoning, no flavor, a major disappointment. I was really looking forward to eating out since we've been cooking at home for months and it was a let down.

We've been coming here for years and I can just say it's ok. They recently updated the interior, but it's very crowded and loud. We were in a small dining room with every table filled and it wasn't relaxing or comfortable. We each ordered sandwiches and salads. We just weren't impressed with anything..the cold slaw was the worst. I do have to say the desserts were very good as we had peanut butter pie and tira misu. The waiter was unattentive and border line rude. He didn't offer additional drinks and he had NO personality. We tried to engage him but very unfriendly!

We ate lunch at Cafe Magnolia for the first time. We were seated on the patio. Very friendly host. Server was quick taking our order and very pleasant the entire time. Food and service both excellent.

Perfect seating and service. The Mediterranean Chicken was five-star fantastic, and the salted caramel cheesecake was a perfect end to a perfect meal.

Disappointed in food. Treated a friend who had been here and suggested it. Menu descriptions were good, more interesting than a lot of other lunch spots. I had the Goddess Salad. Ok except the lettuce was a little past prime. When you're eating a mostly lettuce salad, um, that's not good. The dessert of lemon cake was excellent except for $10, I was served a piece that barely counted as a half slice. I would have been embarrassed to serve it. Coffee was fresh and very good. Bill for spanokopita appetizer, salad, cake, coffee, only water was $45 before tip.

Cute and different restaurant setting. It’s a house turned into a restaurant. Great outdoor seating area but check first to see if it’s open. Definitely make a reservation. The food was excellent!

Wonderful evening out with friends. The menu was excellent and server was able to make some changes for us. Salmon was perfection, steak was delicious, and we had plenty to take home. Service was excellent. We will return!

Traveling through the area we found this gem on TripAdvisor and it did not disappoint. My husband started with mussels which were excellent. If we had had the rolls at that time, he would have dunked them in the sauce but it did come with a spoon. His shrimp entree was recommended by Christine, our waitress, and it was superb. He had a chance to use the roll to sop up the sauce and Christine brought him two more rolls so he wouldn’t have to lick the plate. This dish isn’t on the online menu. I had Jess’s favorite salad in the whole world which is now my favorite salad in the whole world. There were so many dishes I wish I could have tried so I guess we’ll just have to travel this way again! I hope we have Christine again because she was so helpful and attentive.

Used to be my favorite restaurant. No specials on weekends anymore used to love looking for the specials and planning for it.
