“Best choice for breakfast”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

It gets busy, so come early or eat at counter. Delicious and filling. There is a reason it is packed with locals.....

“Breakfast ”
Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

Stopped because someone else's review - overall the breakfast was ok - the carrot cake pancakes were very good but served cold. Steak was ordered well done but came out burnt. Coffee was good omelet was delicious. Not a huge fan but would return for the carrot cake pancakes just make sure they get served a little faster. Wait staff wasn't very efficient - had to wait too long for coffee refills and anything for that matter. Overall it is a place I would stop at again but not an exceptional place.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

My family visited Gloucester for the first time last weekend, read the Trip Advisor reviews on this restaurant and decided to give it a try. We are so glad that we did. The menu had many interesting items, we finally decided to splurge and order extra food to taste and share. Everything ordered was delicious-pineapple fritters served with fresh pineapple and brown sugar dipping sauce, carrot cake pancakes with maple cream cheese butter, a veggie scramble with lots of fresh vegetables, chocolate chip pancakes, plus more...My husband was really pleased with his order of hash and eggs served with a large slice of grilled cornbread. Even the coffee was excellent. The portions were large and prices very reasonable. Our waitress was efficient and attentive. Comfortable surroundings. I could give this place 6 stars I would.

“The locals know”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

Walking down Main Street in Gloucester Sugar Magnolia's doesn't look fancy... and it's not. But it has a crowd of locals while neighboring restaurants are half empty for a good reason. Good food, reasonable prices, straightforward service. What more can you ask from a breakfast/lunch only restaurant.

“Good Breakfast”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Service was friendly and quick. Despite the business, came often to check on meal, coffee refill and exchange a couple of jokes. Breakfast was very good and filling. Easy to find and park on a Saturday morning.
