I guess you pay for the atmosphere, which was quite nice on the patio with a trio performing great live music. But very pricey for soup and sandwiches. The potato soup is quite touted and it was good but no better than at any good restaurant. We had the blackberry cobbler and it was very good. Wait staff was adequate... More

First of all, the outdoor seating and patio is really quite nice. Most of the time I try to eat here it is too crowded and I find something else. So it is popular. Second, the desserts are always fantastic. Pies, crepes, bread pudding all worth a try. Third, the restaurant is tiny inside on bad weather days. I felt... More

I adore this place for lunch! Must try a slice of the spinach kitsch. Add a bowl of their delicious baked potato soup and its a perfect lunch. If you have room for dessert the crepes are fabulous. Pick a nice day and sit outdoors. Its great watching the hustle and bustle of Main street. Tip: Restaurant.com usually has discount... More

Magpie's has been in business a very long time. When they first opened, they had a very limited menu, but the pies were the main attraction. While the pies are still delicious, the serving size has diminished. In the spring, the strawberry pie is to die for. They have a good quiche and several excellent salad and sandwich choices. It's...

I had my son and daughter and my daughter's friend with us and we wanted to go to Main Street for dinner. My daughter's friend had never been to Brayden's so we first tried there but they had a long wait, so we walked down to Magpie's. It was more of a, "let's just go see". We left with a... More

Quaint, cozy place with a creative and absolutely delicious menu! Outdoor dining is perfect. All ingredients are fresh, made from scratch. The owner wouldn't have it any other way! This is the best place on Main STreet. I have been coming here for years and have never been disappointed.

We sat outside by a fire pit and that was really nice. I love Main Street! My pasta was super good. Also ordered a sandwich that was only average. My son had a really small pizza. We ordered an app but never received it. Service was really slow.

I had crepes for dessert -- it was excellent. Know that there are sandwiches & quiche on the menu, so don't come looking for a meal. The restaurant was empty, which was odd.

I rated this place highly a couple of years ago, but did stop in again for dessert on my recent visit to St. Charles. It was as I remembered. Happy diners everywhere. I had the peach cobbler again this time and it was as I remembered- wonderful. They have the best desserts in town and hey, the food is great... More

Don't miss this gem. It's super charming, quaint, and incredibly delicious! It's truly my favorite restaurant and has been for years. It's consistently good and the owner is always adding new imaginations like the latest - scallops with tasso cream sauce. Delish! Sit on the patio, have a bottle of wine, and listen to Miss Jubilee singing throwback 40s tunes.... More
