My wife discovered this lovely breakfast place located close to her mothers house. It's a local restaurant situated in a shopping center easy to find because you will usually find a crowd in the area, most times a good indication of a great restaurant. You will have to wait on busy days like Friday or Saturday morning sometimes as much 45 minutes to get a seat. We never had to wait that long but I know others who did, if you've ever been to original house of pancakes one of my personal favorites. Then you'll quickly recognize some great similarities between the two. Original is still the best but Magnolia's does a mighty fine job on their own. Once you get seated the service is awesome, the waitresses are friendly and seem like they are glad you are there! The food comes out quickly unless you order the special apple pancake which take a little while longer. But it all fresh hot and tasty. We actually ate here twice ordering different things each time with a party of 5 and it was always great! Give them try, I think you'll like the service and the food! Had two different waitress each just as wonderful as the other.

Great breakfast items for all members of the family. Was a bit disappointed in the biscuits and gravy but the fruit and pancakes other members of the family got were very good. Nice clean environment, friendly staff.

As DDD fans, we checked it out. Good helpings, reasonable pricing, great service, and a lovely atmosphere make this a good stop. No issues and seemed popular among the local police department, which is always a good sign.

Lots of unique omelets, including jambalaya, monterry, and sarkis. I had the turkey hash with some over easy eggs and rye toast - delicious combo of flavour.

Everything tasted great. Recommend.

If you are like the hundreds of folks who love breakfast, this is the right place for you. BUT, be prepared for a long wait!! Personally, no breakfast meal is worth waiting 45 minutes for and definitely not more than an hour. The pancakes were good but the syrup was too watery for my taste. Service was fast and definitely top notch.
