About Magnolia Cafe

What a delight this High Tea was and VERY reasonably priced!
I took my grandmother here and we both thoroughly enjoyed our experience here.
The staff are patient and friendly, the food was amazing! I loved the sandwiches and home made scones were to die for!! We will definitely return.
Thank you Magnolia Café for having us!
