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 every Friday and Saturday night, and have released a compilation CD, "Live at Mother Fool's," on our own record label, Uvulittle Records, featuring a number of our regular performers. The recordings are of live performances that took place at Mother Fool's, and include such Madison notables as Andy Ewen, Biff Blumfumgangne, Ritt Deitz, Elizabeth Schaefer, Les Lokey, Pascal, and others. If you are interested in playing here, please read our submission guidelines.

We accept the local currency, Madison HOURS at the following rates: 1/4 HOUR accepted on any purchase over $5. 1/2 HOUR on any purchase over $10.

We serve coffee from Alterra. All of our coffees are Organic and Fair Trade Certified.

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.
