“Good Breakfast Spot”
Reviewed September 4, 2009

A very nice breakfast spot. Extensive menu. Average coffee but since Gloucester is having a water problem, I'll give them a pass. Our coffee probably sat in a carafe too long. Carrot pancakes sounded intincing but were leaden. Too bad. Maple cream served with them was lovely! Could only eat an eighth of these monsters, partly due to the fact they are a bit dry and heavy. Overall, service was ok and quick. That check appears quickly and feels like they are turning over the tables quickly which is a good thing if you are waiting.

“A good stop for breakfast or lunch”
Reviewed July 26, 2009

When you enter this bustling restaurnat you think all of Gloucester is there. It is a noisy busy lunch spot offering lots of food at great prices. Half a sandwich and soup for $8. I do miss what was the best seafood chowder, but the corn chowder is excellent

“Nice place, good food but not outstanding”
Reviewed July 7, 2009

Had a tasty breakfast here of ham, potato and carrot hash with eggs and corn bread. It was fine - wouldn't say it was amazing, but certainly a little better than average. The atmosphere is good, so on that basis would use the place again.

“Sugar Magnolias... pretty name”
Reviewed July 15, 2008

We had lunch here and it was nothing special. We felt that the prices, comparable to other dinner menus from other surrounding restaurants, were too high for lunch. Our bill was comparable to some of the dinners we had paid for. We are willing to pay for a good meal but this food was just barely above average. Cute little coffee shop style atmosphere. Nice location on a street with shops.
