Popular among locals and visitors alike, prepare to wait for a table in the summer, even during the week. Great menu; don't miss the Eggs Benedict. The freshly made muffins (changes every day) served grilled with some butter is a great "appetizer," the kitchen is...More

We ate breakfast here based on prior Tripadvisor reviews. It was about 7:30, so not crowded. Nice atmosphere, very friendly service and reasonably priced. Would definitely return.

The locals go here to eat breakfast and now I know why. It’s amazing! Found this gem through a tripadvisor search before visiting Gloucester for a wedding. The hotel restaurant had a long wait so my mom and I decided to venture out. So glad...More

Do not be misled by Sugar Magnolia's unpretentious atmosphere the food preparation and service ranks up there with the finest restaurants. Our party of nine, four young children, sampled a variety of menu items and each one was delicious. An unusual but delicious combination was...More

Sugar Magnolias is the best eclectic breakfast one could possibly experience. Busy establishment churning out great breakfast options limited only by ones's imagination. Sooo Good! Easy to be healthy or Indulgent. YOLO. Enjoy. Best.

If you're looking for a good breakfast place with a slightly unique menu then I'd visit Sugar Magnolias. I rarely go out for breakfast because all the menus seem exactly the same- but the options here, however, seemed like each special dish or omelette had...More

Had a birthday lunch here with a friend and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service. A very nice, small cafe on a street full of cute shops and restaurants.

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
