One autumn day, 13-year-old Shanita McAfee wandered through her local apple orchard, plucking the ripest, plumpest apples. She had done this for years with her dad and siblings, but this year was different. Instead of giving the apples to her mom for apple pies, Shanita decided to take on the challenge herself. She loved her mom's pies, but didn't understand why her mom would use a store-bought crust if she was going to put in the effort to make everything else from scratch. So, Shanita started experimenting with various homemade-crust recipes, and her passion for cooking was born.

Though Shanita’s repertoire has expanded to include savory dishes, such as New Orleans–style shrimp and pan-seared seafood, her cooking philosophy remains the same: fresh, seasonal ingredients prepared with love. Magnolia’s chef has also made it her mission to challenge people to "experience traditional Southern ingredients and food in a different way." That's why she creates things such as braised oxtail lasagna and Grown Up grilled cheese—toasted farm-to-market challah bread with smoked gouda and Tillamook cheddar served with bacon horseradish dip and a 401K pamphlet.


Delicious food with great flavor.

    “Peach sweet tea alone is worth going there for. I can't wait to go back when its a hot summer day. Welcoming staff and attentive to the dining experience. I am from New Orleans so I am accustomed to good Southern and Creole style food. Recipes are authentic Soul Comfort food and uses very high quality ingredients that if one appreciates the details of good quality, Magnolia won't disappoint. There are not many Creole/Soul food restaurants in Kansas City. Magnolia is a little more expensive than Jazz which is a pretty nice place to eat New Orleans Style food, however Magnolia's higher quality both in ingredients and dining atmosphere make it more comparable to high end dining”
