We had excellent service and a delicious breakfast. We both ordered eggs Benedict- mine with mouth watering hash, his with crab cakes. There is metered parking out front and we were seated right away on a Saturday morning, and the waitress was lovely.

Sugar Mags simply has the best breakfast (and lunch) in town. Wonderful hash and eggs. For lunch try the buffalo fish toastie. You won't be disappointed. Even if it's not on the daily menu, just ask, and the chef will likely make it for you.

Always busy and must admit, they have creative pancakes, however, you often have to wait; the egg dishes are always undercooked (juicey, etc.); to me lacks cleanliness; noisy; chaotic seating; and bathrooms poorly kept and not updated. Way over-rated compared to many other breakfast spots

Based on the great reviews we decided to stop at Sugar Magnolias for our first breakfast in Gloucester. Was not disappointed. Food was great and the service was attentive. I had the pineapple fritters with my breakfast. Nice treat. Would highly recommend this place

We arrived about noon and had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. Service was a bit slow as it was very busy. Wait was worth the time as breakfast fare was terrific. If your hungry, try the "Greasy Pole" breakfast- piles of food...More

Had lunch here while visiting Gloucester. Delicious and very reasonable. Waitress was very nice and attentive. They were busy, many locals so it must be good, right? Had the corn chowder soup and a sandwich. Great. I'd go back for sure.

In this case, the MBTA means the train from North Station, and I am not sure where the station is in Gloucester but it is not very near the harbor area of Gloucester where the restaurant is. You would likely need to take a... More
