“Good For Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

After getting off work at 6AM a lot of us from work decided it would be a good idead to go to Mags for breakfast before heading to bed. The breakfast tacos was excellent with plenty of eggs, sausage, home fries and cheese. Their salsa was pretty good too. The service though was lacking. It's a good thing I was not dying from thirst and the waitress did not refill my water glass at all.

“Great Breakfast and Great Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

This was a great place just after the SoCo strip, felt like your typical breakfast/diner spot but once you look at the menu you know it's anything but. I had an amazing bowl of fresh black beans with queso fresco that was out of this world. The accompanying corncake was a perfect addition. My wife had a great breakfast spread with a fantastic gingerbread pancake. Oh yeah and it all was dirt cheap. We had to wait a little while but the food and the value was well worth it.

“Major Breakfast !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

Just had breakfast there 4/23...wowsers !! A delicious custom omlette, very good service and generous portions. Lot's of local art on the walls for viewing and sale. This is the place to go anytime of the day or night for great breakfast fare. Wish we'd stayed in town longer to try some of their luncheon options.

“can't get enough of this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

The food is delicious with a unique twist. We ate there twice this trip and brought our friends who were also visiting for a wedding. Every single one of us loved our meal. Tip, during the week, no wait. On weekends go early or the wait might be an hour.
