Great menu for lunch - sat outside, too. The dishes were the right size for lunch. Loved the strawberry spinach salad.

Had dinner in the garden area on a beautiful summer evening. Service and food were both excellent. Ordered the Greek salad for a starter which was served on a bed of roasted red pepper hummus. Unique but very good. For my main I ordered the Mahi Mahi fish tacos served with sautéed seasonal vegetables and parmesan cheese encrusted corn on... More

While touring the old historic district of St Charles, we took a break for lunch at Magpie which has a great outdoor courtyard which is tree covered making it usable on a warm July day. I had the combo of 1/2 chicken salad sandwich on French baguette and hearts of palm salad. The sandwich was very good but the salad... More

Made a reservation for a "milestone" birthday party celebration, for a group of 11. Less than 3 hours before the reservation time, they call to CANCEL the reservation. Because of the weather, they decided to cancel all reservations except for a party of 45 to accommodate only them inside. Patio is closed. Everyone else is "on the street", with no... More

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

We had the buffalo goat cheese with pitta chips which were at hit will all of us. I had the chicken César salad and my friends had different sandwiches. We all... More

4 of us went for lunch. We sat on the patio which was delightful. We all had the potato soup. Yummy. I had the quiche with mine. I would recommend. My daughter got the BLT. she couldn't get over all the bacon on her sandwich. The other two also got sandwiches. I don't remember what kind. We all loved it... 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
