Magnolia Cafe: "Amazing Pancakes to Die For" Magnolia Cafe Tip by keeweechic

Magnolia Cafe, Austin: 8 reviews and 3 photos


Magnolia Cafe is Tex-Mex. This is one of 2 cafe's and is opened 24 hrs.

We went there for breakfast which is served anytime.

Favorite Dish: You have to have the gingerbread whole wheat cornmeal pancakes with pecans, they are to die for but they are BIG. I had one only and that kept me going most of the day. The eggs were apparently good but the sausage a little crunchy. It is a very popular place and do not be surprised if they waiters have tattoos, ear piercing and long hair - the service is good and the coffee (which is ok - not great) keeps flowing.

Address: 2304 Lake Austin Blvd (the original cafe).
Directions: Exit Mopac at Lake Austin Blvd, head west a little way. Its popular so parking could be difficult.
