We like it all the service and the food is excellent. We planned a stop in Austin just to eat at the Cafe.

If you visit Austin it is the must to have a breakfast at Magnolia Cafe! It is really interesting place with its special spirit. Order their signature Magnolia omelette and pancakes - you will like it.
The only think that we did not like was Eggscape - the undercooked potatoes were covered with the eggs fried on the burnt oil. But one tiny meal did not spoil the overall impression from this nice place.

The food was great as always. Great quality and wonderful portion and options. Our waitress was a bit o a slacker, messed up order, blamed it on the kitchen staff, took way too long to bring back change....maybe like she thought she was going to get a $9 tip on a $21 ticket?

You can't find late night food done any better than Magnolia Cafe! Both locations (Lake Austin Blvd & S. Congress) are excellent. I've had a few different things here, and all were superb. I highly recommend the omelets, and finish it off with a slice of hot apple pie! Great service to boot, so this is a 5 star for sure.

I've always been a fan of Magnolia, but I was nervous about it still being great as I haven't visited in years.
Food was as lovely as always, and they had a lot of options for all dietary requirements.
Wait wasn't bad, but it was a weekday morning.
Service felt a bit rushed and uncomfortable at times, but overall food made the trip good.
Definitely worth a try if you're visiting Austin!
