    Magnolia's has delicious meals & appropriate morning samosa's. Drop by during breakfast for some delicious french toast or fried eggs over quinoa and vegetables with freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. Read more

    Great neighborhood spot on Haight for meeting up with friends. Beer selection is awesome. Food is quite good - their homemade duck pasta is outtathisworld. Be warned - there is usually a wait to sit.

    Ambience is pretty rustic old style . Decent draft beer list. Loved their IPAs . Get the Bombay nuts and maitake mushroom. The veggie pot pie was pretty good too.

    As far as I can tell, this is the only place in SF where you can get a proper pint of REAL ale, pumped from the cask and served at cellar temperature. My absolute favorite. Brits rejoice!

    The steak and eggs are amazing (brunch). **Tables outside are first come first serve - skip the long wait and enjoy the entertaining scenery of the Haight.

    This place is awesome. Great beer, great food, great atmosphere. Highly recommended. Proving Ground IPA is hugely drinkable, too. Easy to get a table when I visited on a Sunday at 8pm.

    English breakfast is pretty good, if a tad too salty. Jen really liked the chicken hash, and the French toast looks so amazing I wish I had ordered it...

    Almost certainly named after Magnolia Thunderpussy, a previous establishment named after the owner. She was a SF icon who was a burlesque dancer whose restaurant served "erotic desserts".

    Love this place. The food is fantastic - in particular, the chicken hash at brunch and the shortrib sandwich...well, anytime. Get their Tillies beer. So fresh and so clean.

    They have a large selection of their beers from the cask, meaning they are less carbonated, served at a warmer temp than from draught (55 vs 47 degrees). Trad English style

    Fish and chips were good but nothing extraordinary. The burgers, on the other hand, looks AMAZING! The beer was awesome. We loved the Weather Report and High Times brews.

    One of the only places in SF you'll find a proper cask ale. If you've ever enjoyed beer from a proper pub in Britain, find the cask menu and order a bitter.

    Must have "Spring Ravioli" which has snap peas, fromage blanc, pioppini mushrooms, watercress-pumpkin seed pesto & squash blossom. I can't believe I haven't had it before. My favorite dish now.

    The menu changes often but know this: if there is anything with duck on the menu (pâté, confit, etc.) just get it. I love this spot.

    Drink beer here. Plenty of entertainment passing the windows on Haight. When you're ready to splurge a little, eat here. Tastes amazing, but not hard to rack up a serious bill.
