A little bit about us
Mother Fool's Coffeehouse first opened in the spring of 1994. At that time it
was under the ownership of Jean Lister. Jean ran it for a year, creating a very homey and comfortable community space, then decided to move to Minneapolis. She sold the coffeehouse to us, Stephanie Rearick and Jon Hain, in June of 1995. We
had met Jean when our old band, Your Mom SRO played at Mother Fool's.
We have music at the coffeehouse most Friday
and Saturday nights. We also host a open mics every month. Every month features a new artist in the cafe.
We serve coffee from Collectivo.
Our baked goods -- muffins, cupcakes, cookies, and brownies -- come from East
Side Ovens, also in Milwaukee. We chose East Side ovens because they make some
of the most delicious treats we've ever had -- and they're all vegan! Our soup and kombucha are both made here in Madison.
One of the missions of Mother Fool's is to show people that you can have
wonderful treats without using animal products.
