Dear Friends,


We are pleased to announce that The Magnificat Cafe is now under new ownership as Mags Cafe. Please welcome Bobby Reynolds and his sister Melina. They have carried over many of your favorite dishes into their new menu.  We are very happy and excited for them as they begin this new venture!  


Currently, we are working on a cookbook to feature all of the old cafe's recipes as well as the blackboard specials over the years and holiday dinners.  If you are interested and would like to reserve a cookbook (no charge to reserve) simply email us at  If there is a particular item you would like to see in the book, email us and let us know! We will send you some of the recipes as we go along.
