Great food for a casual cafe meal

I got the beet salad which was really tasty, albeit a little small. My boyfriend got the Vietnamese steak salad which was huge and he liked it (I'm mostly vegetarian). Service was good, food came quickly and the cafe is located in a cute part of Sacramento, not too busy or noisy.

We enjoyed our array of appetizers at Magpie Café. Service was a bit slow and confusing - changing servers twice throughout our meal. Dessert, the chocolate-avocado mousse, was superb. we ate inside the restaurant, and the atmosphere was very smoky - smoke coming from the kitchen as if their hood exhausts over the grill area weren't working. Teary eyes and... More

This is a gem...the atmosphere is wonderful and the food is fantastic. The chicken for two is fabulous. It is so great to see R St be so alive with Restaurants like Magpie and The Shady Lady.

The Magpie Carerers Market and Cafe has become a very trendy place in Sacramento. We went at 11:30 (to beat the crowds) on a Saturday morning. One of us had a salad, another the smoked trout, and the third had the brunch offering. The food was fine, nicely presented, and fresh, but I expected more, I think, given all the... More

We had a decent brunch here but the food while fresh was nothing to write home about. About half of the folks we were with enjoyed their meal the other half didn't appreciate some of the more unique flavor combinations, so to each their own. The big thing about this place that gave us a negative experience were the other... More

Magpie is an excellent restaurant. If you're looking for a snobby fine dining experience complete with chilled salad forks and $100 wine, you won't find it here. What you will find is friendly and professional staff. The place has just enough class to make it a nice but not intimidating place to take a date. The menu seems to change... More

There is always something new, seasonal and fresh at Magpie. The winter BLT is very good as well the pulled pork Sammie. Haven't had it but the Banh Mi seems to be popular. Oh, and the smoked trout with Meyer lemon is yummy. Can be very crowded but worth the wait.

I've eaten lunch at Magpie several times and consider it to be one of the highest quality and most innovative places in Sacramento. It is often quite crowded and there is a bit of uncertainty about getting a table. If the weather is nice, it is lovely to sit outside. I agree with a few others that it is a... More

Magpie is one of my favorite restaurants. I have always enjoyed every selection knowing it is fresh and healthy and delicious. I am a huge fan of their avocado mousse and highly recommend it to anyone who loves chocolate. I love the ambience, menu items that vary with the season and the chance to try eating things I wouldn't try... More

This restaurant is in a revived area of Sacramento at 14th Street and R Street. It is a small café with a great crew. Servers were attentive and helpful. The food choices were uniquely prepared and absolutely delicious. I had the pan seared Kingbird Grits as an appetizer. It was the best serving of grits I have ever had in... More
