    One of my favourite places to eat all hours of the night or day. Always something new to try and a wonderful diversity in soups!

    This location is by far the better one of the two Magnolias. They get insanely busy for Sunday brunch. Stop by for a midnight snack - the food is great.

    It's still overrated, and I still kind of hate. It took me about 4 years of not coming here to reinforce that fact.

    The sign says, "Sorry we're open." Another says, Sorry no checks." The *menu* even reads, "Sorry we're pancakes." They're full of pity here for everyone.

    Service tends to be flaky but this time took the cake. Asked for coffee, he brought beer. Asked for another coffee, took 15mins. To top that, they don't split checks. For REAL!? Don't bring friends...
