Magpie has a menu that is creative and refreshing. I live a block from Magpie...so I eat there often! Not that I have to. Midtown Sac is filled w/ eating places. I favor Magpie especially for breakfast. How about 2 beautifully poached eggs, hand cut bacon, roasted root vegetables ( purple potato, turnip, white carrot and rutabaga) home made jam... More

We recently had breakfast here at this café. There are outdoor tables that looked fun, but were all booked. We sat inside, which is cozy and artfully decorated. We were greeted right away and seated. They serve Chocolate Fish coffee, which is good start! My daughter had a mimosa as well. I had the bread pudding which was fabulous; just... More

We met up with my stepdaughter for brunch last weekend at Magpie, part of the up-and-coming R Street Corridor in Sacramento. The inside is a little loud, so we opted for the pleasant outdoor seating. They do not take reservations, which is a drawback, as this place is busy! However, the food was excellent. We all ordered different items, from... More

My adult daughter and I enjoyed a scrumptious brunch at the Magpie Cafe on a beautiful Sunday morning. We arrived around 10:30 (lots of street parking available) and were seated almost immediately. A large bottle of water and glasses are provided at the table. My daughter had the Grilled Mission Fig and Peach French Toast. Being a French toast lover,... More

Farm to Table has rarely been executed as well as it's done at Magpie. Menu items are locally sourced, imaginatively prepared, and served by a knowledgeable wait staff: what could be better? The prices are reasonable and portions generous. Atmosphere is lively. We were a party of four, two in our seventies, two in our thirties (all of us foodies)--... More

The folks at Magpie know flavor profiling. Though I've had numerous delicious meals there, the one dish that lingers in my memory never to be replicated is their autumn fruit salad. Prepared with currants, pears and persimmons, and a honey-lime vinaigrette, it's an exquisite memory of fresh seasonal fruit enhanced (not overwhelmed) but the perfectly prepared dressing. I go back... More

This is one example of a search we did on trip advisor that found us a gem....fresh food, well presented, very tasty and reasonably priced. It was very popular with locals, we got an early seat but it quickly filled on a week night. Obviously the chef likes to work with local fresh ingredients and the choices were interesting and...

With as many positive reviews on yelp as this little cafe has we figured we couldn't go wrong and didn't. There was such a line-up that we worried we wouldn't get a seat as we ordered (while in line!) but by the time our beer was pulled we were sitting down. I don't think there was anything to be improved... More

I keep waiting for the meal I get at Magpie to be flawed so I can have an excuse to stop picking it as my go-to meeting/brunch/lunch/dinner spot. It doesn't help that every time I go, the food all of my friends and/or family get is also amazing. This place is really one of the best things about Sacramento -... More

We stopped in for appetizers and drinks. The wine list was very nice. The service was great. I ordered the PEI mussels and they were delicious. I would love to come back and have a full dinner!
