Great atmosphere, a bit expensive for what you get. Probably won't do it again. They were able to accommodate a table of 14.

Everything I have had here is delicious, hand made, and served in large quantities. The sandwiches, quiches, soups are always top-notch, but it's the desserts and baking that are the cream of the crop here.

Not impressed with the food or the prices. I could easily make the same meal at home and it would taste way better then here. Stay home and save our money

I had the pleasure of enjoying an amazing lunch with family at the Magic Rolling Pin. The deep dish quiche was so flavorful and absolutely delicious. It was accompanied with an amazing salad including home made dressing. To top it off was an amazing coffee and the best butter tarts I have ever had!
