I have been to Sugar Magnolia's many times and it never disappoints! It is a cozy breakfast place (and lunch) with delicious food and friendly staff. On my most recent trip I ordered the veggie omelet which comes with a side of toast and homies (home fries). The omelet was very big and packed full of veggies and cheese. The... More

Sugar Magnolias is a great place for breakfast or lunch. Breakfast choices run from standard eggs and home fries to interesting fruit bowls and more. Well worth a visit! If you are going for breakfast be sure to get there early.

This place can get busy but the food is pretty good. I had the lobster roll which was made with fresh lobster but it was served on a hamburger like bun. It should have been served on a hoagie roll. It was not inexpensive either. All in all the food was good.

Though we've enjoyed breakfast at Sugar Mags, this was our first lunch and won't be our last. Four of us were quickly seated at noon on a week day. Everything on the menu looked so tempting we had a hard time choosing. Everyone raved about their choices. The Caribbean grilled salmon floating on spicy corn chowder and my fish taco... More

We wanted to like this neighborhood spot because it has mismatched furniture and really nice staff, but the food isn't great. The fish sandwich was pretty tasteless, and rather than tarter sauce (this is Gloucester after all), it came with aioli sauce that tasted like bland mayo. A Salmon club with bacon was better ( served on thick white bread).... More

We eat breakfast out often and this restaurant we go to again and again. True home style cooking, very good quality and quantity. Waitstaff friendly, and prices reasonable. What more could you ask for ?

I'm a local. This is where I want to go when we go our for breakfast. I get the 56 Hilltop ... and my daughter loves the Charleston (with the pineapple fritters). There will be a wait on Sunday mornings, but then you expect that from a great breakfast spot.

Yum! Went in for breakfast on a Tuesday morning and sat down right away. We ordered the Eggs Bene and Georgia's French Toast. Both were amazing! The French toast was like the ultimate s'more and as big as my head. Delish.

We stopped here for lunch. Food is what you would expect from a diner, nothing extraordinary or special. It wasn't bad, but it really didn't impress us. The name is more interesting than the place or the food.
