The only good thing was the lack of piped music, otherwise I would stay away. I do wonder why people go into running a cafe if they do not have a welcoming and cheerful manner with customers.

We go in here on occasion for a coffee/tea and a slice of cake. There is a lot of different cakes to choose from and they are homemade. They also serve hot food too from breakfast and lunches.

Wanted a quick lunchtime lite bite and a cuppa. So looked in and it looked good so we popped in. We decided on the cream tea. We each were served served with two good sized scones plus a good portion of strawberry jam and Devon clotted cream. It was really nice and didn't break the bank. If we ever return... More

Extremely grumpy and rude staff. The coffee is disgusting and the prices are shocking, the quality of the food does not justify the price by far!!!! Small portions which in some ways was a release as the food was not enjoyable at all. The customer bathroom is extremely small and run down and in need of a deep clean! Is... More

We use the Magnolia cafe for a coffee and toasted tea cake when we have time to spare after shopping. Very friendly staff make it a pleasant experience. We have also taken away some of their yummy home made apple pie. Delicious!!

While there was a big fire in another business not far from here, the staff bought out bacon butties and hot drinks for the fire crews. It was much appreciated by all the firefighters. Thank you!

This is a lovely bright and clean cafe in a good position and we popped in for lunch. Lovely omelette and a macaroni cheese, but the portion of the macaroni was just too small. The other dished being eaten around us were larger, as was our omelette but please, can we have some more?

The food here is cooked to order & the portions generous. My tasty ham omelet must have been at least 3 eggs as it was big & came with a generous portion of fresh salad. Menu offers a good variety from sandwiches to hot meals.
