My wife and I had coffee and cookies here and both were excellent. The staff was friendly and efficient. They have a large seating area in the back. I would go here again.

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.
