The address you have listed is incorrect. Magpie is located at 1601 16th Street, Sacramento. We happened to visit early afternoon on a Sunday when breakfast and lunch only are served. We could choose off of the breakfast or lunch menu. It was difficult because...More

We come here everytime we are in Sacramento, the food is epic, the staff is super friendly and the new digs give you way more of a chance of getting a table. We usually get the chicken for two, the olive appetizers and a bottle...More

Stopped by for some coffee after having eaten lunch at a nearby restaurant. My double espresso was very good and the place had a nice atmosphere.

I came here for brunch which was probobly not the best time to come as it was very busy and no tables. Finally got a table and the entree was great. We loved the cheese plate!

Magpie continues to serve up great food prepared creatively with a healthy mix of choices for Brunch. Had a waffle with fruit (eg. diced apple, persimmon and pomegranate) and maple syrup on top, and a few pieces of boneless breaded fried chicken on top. Really...More

In 2005, Ed Roehr and Janel Inouye started Magpie with a simple idea - that more sustainable food options can be made readily available to the community, and found within the community. Over the years this idea has grown, and so has the Magpie Family. Magpie café is located in the LEED Certified 16 Powerhouse building at 16th and P Streets with a large patio that overlooks Fremont Park. We have a full bar to compliment the wine and beer lists. We offer menus inspired by the fresh, high-quality ingredients available to us seasonally, with an emphasis on those from the Central Valley and Northern California. The casual atmosphere, interesting food and attentive service are what we have come to be known and appreciated for. The Yellow-Billed Magpie is native to the Sacramento area, and is the only bird found solely on the California mainland. It is easily identifiable by its bright yellow bill and contrasting black and white coloration. We aim to be like our namesake bird - familiar, yet unique - a distinctive part of our community.
