Magnolia Cafe Restaurant Review

: Every college town has at least one 24/7 café, and Magnolia was Austin's first. After a quarter century, it continues to thrive based on convenient hours, huge portions and dirt-cheap prices. You’ll need the strong, limitless coffee to get you through the wait for a table. Big-as-your-face cornmeal and gingerbread pancakes pep up a groggy Sunday morning or deliciously tie up the 3 a.m. Saturday night finale. Lighter lunch appetites will relish the tuna melt or California salad with fresh fruit, avocado, chicken, jack cheese and sprouts. Burgers, spinach enchiladas and fajitas also keep those big Texas appetites happy. The menu slogan sums it up: “Everyone knows, everyone goes.”
