If you are looking for truly homemade food then Magnolia Pancake Haus is the place to go. We went on a Sunday morning for brunch. We had a 45 minute wait, but it was so worth it. Our favorites were the Bananas Foster French Toast and the Peach Pancakes. Served with real butter, real maple syrup and real whipped cream.

We love EVERYTHING here, from the wonderful eggs Benedict to hash to pancakes to their potatoes, etc, etc, etc. I've never had anything here that I didn't love, and I've been here a lot. Get here early cuz there's always a big crowd. Well worth the wait!

My husband and I saw all the amazing reviews of this place, and knew we needed to try it. We just don't understand why everyone is raving. The service was good. The coffee was great, as were the potatoes. The bacon was ok. The biscuits are light and the gravy interesting, but not anything to write home about. While the... More

We were visiting our kids and went for breakfast. It was exceptional and seating was very quick for as many people waiting to be seated. Great service and very friendly staff. A must visit!!!

We picked up a friend at the San Antonio airport and found Magnolia Pancake Haus on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives website, nearby. Nothing diner, drive-in, or divey about this place but it was a terrific breakfast. Needless to say with the TV show fame comes a long wait for a table. But it's a comfortable and worthwhile wait. Dishes sampled... More

You can definitely tell a popular restaurant by the expected wait times. Plenty of selections for breakfast...but your breakfast can turn into a brunch if you don't go early enough. The good thing is your phone is your notification device so you can actually run an errand or two while waiting. This was the first time I had a beer-mosa...I... More

I found this place to be the top rated and we decided to try it out since it was close to our hotel. The wait time is a bit long but very well worth. I fell in love with their pancakes and waffles. I had never tried something so good like these!!! Definitely a must when in San Antonio.
