It was on a weekday evening, and at that time they hadn't even had their grand opening yet, but there was quite a line to get a seat. Luckily, there were just the two of us and we did not mind to be seated in the smoking section. Later on, I noticed that the non-smoking section was the one with the garden theme. The garden section was super cute!
The cafe would be opened just for a few months, but yet they decorated it super nicely. It was managed by Ismaya Group. The interior would make you feel like you traveled through a time machine to the Victorian time, as it was also supported by the costumes of the waiters. They also addressed the customers as "My Lord" and "My Lady." I tried very hard not to burst out laughing when I heard that for the first time, not in a mocking way, of course, but more like because it was too cute :p
They had a giant magnum ice cream and a cinderella-like horse carriage in front of the restaurant that you can have fun taking pictures with ;), just like I did.
As the name, the main menu for this cafe is: Magnum ice cream. They even had a dipping station where you can make your own magnum and choose your topping to dip in your magnum. They also offered appertizer and main dishes, other than desserts.

Anyway, last Friday, my friends and I decided to give Magnum Cafe another go. Well, most of them hadn't tried it yet. And...OMG the line was sooooooooooo long!
I had never seen a line this long for any restaurant, as long as I can recall. I might be wrong tho'. Oh well, The Cheesecake Factory in SF downtown might have longer line, but they gave out buzzer to people, so you can go out shopping while waiting and when it was almost your turn, your buzzer would vibrate. That way, people did not have to stand in the line for a very long time like this. So, we decided to have dinner somewhere else.
Even though I did not like the waffle, I loved the drinks. I might come back again just because it will close in 3 months, and will try out its other food. My advice though, come with a friend or two on the weekdays afternoon to avoid long line.
Oh, they will give out 10% discount if you are willing to fill out a survey.
