Description: At Magpie Coffeehouse our goal is to provide a warm comfortable atmosphere and combine it with great staff, great food, and the best coffee. We strive everyday to get to know our customers so Magpie doesn't just feel like a place to buy coffee but feels like a home away from home. We have a great selection of coffees, ranging from a drip coffee to a rare Bianco espresso. Our Baristas are skilled in the art of brewing espresso, so we are able to customize your drinks to suit your own personal preference. Our Kitchen uses fresh ingredients to prepare house made soups, fresh baked sweets, salads and sandwiches. At Magpie Coffeehouse we believe in "buy fresh, buy local," because we believe in the community that supports us.

“Classic little coffee-house with delicious breakfasts and lunches and superb service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012 via mobile

Magpie has been a local hang-out for over 15 years, and it's had a few different owners, chefs, and employees. Its current staff is knowledgable, friendly, and talented at preparing and serving easy and delicious cafe food. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual. It's comfortable for everyone from senior citizens to young parents to college students. Wi-fi is available, and the staff will even deliver your order to most downtown locations on a sweet three-wheeled bike! Enjoy this great rest stop in Decorah!

“Great for a casual breakfast or lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

This is a lovely cafe on Winnebago Street (a block from Water). Here, you'll get an excellent cup of coffee or tea or smoothie, enjoy free internet, and dine on freshly baked pastries and deliciously prepared breakfasts and lunches. There is a good variety available and most of their offerings are named after local attractions. People care about the environment, so if you drink your coffee or have a meal here, you'll get a mug and a plate, not paper. The staff is more than friendly, and the food is reliably delicious. I am not really a coffee drinker--I discovered this place because I needed wireless internet. But the coffee lovers I know choose this place in Decorah. It's a counter service place with plenty of tables and a couple outdoor tables if you prefer to sit outside. If you go, be sure to look at a menu. The chalkboards are so full of menu items that you'll give yourself a headache trying to read through them all.
