Magnolia Cafe on South Congress temporarily closed for renovations

Magnolia Cafe REAL HOOD 2If you’ve driven by the iconic Magnolia Cafe on South Congress Avenue this week and seen the tents and kitchen equipment lining the parking lot, don’t worry, the building didn’t suffer any damage, it’s not having a garage sale, and it’s not going anywhere. Magnolia South, which opened in 1988, is just undergoing some renovations and rehabilitation. When asked what kind of work was being done, an employee responded, “Pretty much everything.” We’re told Magnolia should be back open for all of your pancake needs by 7 a.m. Friday at the latest.
