This is really a treasure in St. Francisville - it is a sweet cafe, nothing too fancy, but just right. The service was over the top friendly and the food was wholesome and generous. This is a tiny little historic town and they are lucky to have such a nice restaurant. Enjoyed it very much and would certainly dine there again!

Just what I was looking for! Lunch here was great. Waiter very attentive. Nicely priced, sufficient portions. Try the fried alligator, it's delicious! (Not overly spicy as other reviews would have you believe).

I have been there several times. My ONLY complaint is the atmosphere. I do not like music so loud that you have to over talk it in order for your companions to hear you. However, soft background music is nice. The main reason is that people near you can hear your conversation as you hear theirs. Just awkward. I think it would benefit this restaurant to consider background music. Other than that it's a good place to eat.

The waitress was very friendly but was responsible for too many tables.
The food was "good" but not something to write home about.
Neat atmosphere. I will go back, but I believe there is room for improvement on food quality.

While on a girls day trip to St. Francisville the restaurant, Magnolia Cafe, kept coming up as a recommendation from different people. We are so glad that we followed the recommendations. We loved the cool, natural, hippish decor. Our server was pleasant and really quick, as was the food. The fried eggplant with marinara was amazing! The muffalata, quesadillas, spicy shrimp poboy, and grilled cheese were all raved on. Two of us ordered the taco salad and didn't care for it; it was not terrible, but it was not nearly as scrumptious as everything else. We will definetly go back.
