Friday Food Critic: Magpie's Cafe

Tell us what you think of Magpie's for a chance to win a $10 gift card.

When it comes to restaurants, St. Charles has it covered.

We have some great local places that many would consider community gems; we have some restaurants that aren't exactly mom-and-pop but are unique to the area; and we certainly—for better or for worse—have plenty of chains lining our main streets.

But what we don't have is a consistent food critic to tell us what's good and what's not. 

That's where you come in.

We could throw some money at a professional food critic, but that's not exactly what Patch is all about. We'd much rather know the opinion of the fine folks that eat there day-in and day-out.

It's your community. You eat the food. You tell us if it passes the mark.

That's why we are introducing The Friday Food Critic, where each week we will put a different restaurant on the chopping block. You tell us how you feel about it, what dishes are good, who has the best drink specials and so forth.

This week's restaurant is , a coffee shop and meeting place for the community. 

To review , simply click on their name. You'll be directed toward their community listing in our places directory, where you can rate them on a five-star system or write a personal review.

At St. Charles Patch, we believe your words of wisdom are better than any food critic. Leave a note, tell us what you think. 

The best part? You could be selected for a $10 gift card to a restaurant of your choice. Each week, we'll randomly select three reviewers from across the St. Louis area.

Magpie's is a little treasure of a restaurant - service is excellent, and the food always fresh, new and scrumptious! The outdoor patio is a beautiful area surrounded by many interesting varieties of trees, bushes and flowers. I feel relaxed and renewed after my dining experience there.

We love Magpie's. Our favorite is their creamy potato soup. They have the best in town. We have yet tried anything we haven't liked down to the desserts. It is a very relaxing restaurant with good service.

I've only been there once, but it was very nice. Good food and service. Next time I go, I'll try the soup.

I love Magpie's! Go for the potato soup and stay for the bing cherry crepes. The wait staff has always been friendly and helpful. I take out of town guests to Magpies so they can experience the charm of "main street" and enjoy a great meal!
