The food is good, a little pricey and the location is nice. I have other places I prefer but Magnolia is worth checking out for brunch.

A little bit out of the way, but worth the effort! Primarily all vegan and vegetarian options, serving only breakfast and lunch with locally sourced offerings. Fresh and delicious! Great service. A little pricey, but well worth it!

We enjoyed a Sunday brunch here. The restaurant was very crowded, so it's hard to call this place quaint. But the food was very good. No complaints.
