“Nice little cafe in historic St Charles”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

We had a little wait, so left our phone nber and shopped across the street. Seating is a little cozy since this is one of the older buildings that is converted into a restaurant. Outdoor seating is available in the summer. The menu offers a selection of sandwiches, soups, salads and quiches or creeps. We had the spinach quiche. Portobello mushroom sandwich and potato soup. All was excellent, especially the mushroom sandwich which had spinach, roasted peppers, feta and Swiss cheeses. Dessert was a blackberry cobbler served warm and offered ala mode. With drinks (tea) our bill came to $29. A full bar is offersd woth wines and liquers, I will plan on another stop in the future.

“Great food, atmosphere, service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

I think Magpie's is my favorite restaurant in St. Charles. Every time I have visited there, the food has been fresh and first-rate. The servers are friendly, and the space (both indoor and outdoor) has been clean, comfortable, and charming. I highly recommend this wonderful local restaurant on your next trip to Historic South Main Street in St. Charles, Missouri! (If it's a bit chilly outside, they do have outdoor heaters)

“Best quiche anywhere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

But stop for the baked potato soup! this is the place that invented it. The outdoor seating is perfect for a girl's lunch out. Fast and friendly service. A bit on the expensive side, but worth it!

“Love the soups and desserts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

There is a beautiful garden area in this sometimes overlooked restaurant in St. Charles, and it's a great place to have lunch. Magpie's also now has a wonderful cookbook available so that you can take some of the memories of dining here home with you!
