We were happy to learn that the Magnolia Cafe was chosen as one of the 40 best restaurants to eat breakfast in the state of Texas. "Top 40" may sound like a big field, but Texas is a big state of course.
Here's what Texas Monthly (Dec. 2011) had to say about us:
Is it the whimsical artwork, cheery print tablecloths, and mismatched booths? Or the toy pterodactyl hanging from the ceiling? Either way, the South Austin Magnolia has the hippie-dippie vibe nailed. The coffee is better than average, and the menu is economical and good. Order the fried-egg sandwich on sourdough--two eggs over easy, three tomato slices, ruffly leaf lettuce--or the house version of the three-egg omelet, with avocado and cheddar-jack cheese (you know you want that lemon-sour cream sauce). And never, under any circumstances, pass up the city's best home fries, creamy inside and perfectly crispy from the griddle.
Shoutin' out a big Thank You to Texas Monthly. (And to the nice Magnolia Cafe South employees who stepped up in the line of fire!)
