Vacationing from East & found restaurant online. Delicious food at a great price. It doesn't get more local than this. Will always remember this meal as an unexpected trip highlight. They really don't take credit cards & it really is worth extra trip to ATM.

Ate lunch here for the first time today. Hungarian food. Had the meatball and Spaetzle pasta special. My mom had the chicken. Just the right amount of food with a couple slices of nice french bread for $7.25 a plate! I like the delicate flavors...More

Wonderful food, great ambiance, super affordable. Homemade all the way, very comforting! ! No bells or whistles but I'm coming back... Sometimes you just want food that's good all in its own! ! And the accents? Very European and charming. And listening to Adelweiss on...More

Owned by an immigrant couple, the husband does the cooking, the wife waits tables. This is the food I grew up on and it tastes exactly like my granny's. Over the years, I have tasted everything on the menu and it's all superb. This is...More

I reside 150 miles from Sacramento but always stop at Cafe Marika when i go through town. Quaint little mom and pop restaurant with real old fashioned European charm. If you are not familiar with Hungarian food try the combination plate with chicken paprikash and...More

This little gem is a husband and wife enterprise and has but a few tables, but don't let the tiny size cause you to overlook the deliciousness that lies within. There's lovely spaetzle, paprikase, and goulash. I usually order a combination because I can't commit...More

The schnitzel is as good it gets! The only drawback to the place is that they only accept cash. I was the birthday boy and I was the only one who carried cash so I wound up paying! LOL.

We love eating at Cafe Marika and go there every chance we get. We took our friends there for Saturday dinner. You feel like you are eating in their dining room at home. Since there are only 5 or 6 tables you need to make...More

Its a super small café with the owners running the place for years. You have to get there early or forget it. But be prepared for authentic Hungarian food. It is consistently good and includes a small dessert with your meal.

I've been wanting to try this spot since walking by it years ago, but the timing has never matched their hours (Lunch M-F, dinner Thu-Sat only). It is tiny - 5 tables seating 2-4 and 4 counter spaces. They feature a small menu of 5-6...More
