Quaint, charming, with incredibly good food. This is absolutely one of my very favorite restaurants. There is nowhere I'd rather be during the spring/summer/fall than on Magpie's patio! It's an all-brick, two-tiered patio with beautiful landscaping, umbrella'd tables, striking fire pits (in cool rows) and often live music... all overlooking the charm of Historic Main Street! (Oh, and if you... More

I'm a loyal patron and have been for over 25 years - still love it:) Every dish in this place is great and there are so many, since they change the specials, there's always something new. If you want something light, they have it: salad and quiche (I'm a bad girl so I usually have a half sandwich-can't resist, I'm... More

Uh oh. It is February and the Christmas decor is still up. Of you like quiche, don't order it here. ? Or you will be forever grossed out.

I ate here twice in November. Our waitress, Cindy, was very efficient and personable. The portions were a little smaller than some places that I have been to, but the food was tasty. They had a nice outdoor seating area overlooking the Main Street historic area of St. Charles and had recently installed outdoor fire pits so that you could... More

It has been awhile since I have last visited this cafe. I came here for lunch today, opted for one of the quiche & spinach salad combo for under $10. I found the quiche to be just "ok" the salad was better. Honestly the quiche looked like it came out of a box, no presentation what so ever. I probably... More

This place is known for its potato soup and it should be. It's so good! The rest of the menu is excellent also. The outdoor seating is beautiful with a great view of Main St.

We stopped for lunch on a perfect summer day .The patio was charming but would probably not be as much fun either indoors or in nasty weather. Hubbie had Chef salad, Potato soup and spinich salad for me. Everything was fresh and done with a twist...loved the chives and bacon in the soup. We certainly had more than enough to... More

A perfect day to sit on the patio. I had the baked Brie and it was a generous portion with fruit and French bread. My husband had 1/2 a sandwich and a salad. Make sure you save room for dessert because what we was and had was outstanding
