Essential Information

1601 16th St.
Sacramento, CA 95814

The second incarnation of Magpie—which relocated in 2015 from its intimate R Street nest to an expansive space at 16th and P—continues to offer the simple yet stellar fare on which the cafe (owned by Ed Roehr and Janel Inouye) has built its reputation. The new location features a bigger dining room and shaded patio, and the upgraded kitchen turns out inventive plates, such as the crispy pork belly appetizer with seasonal fruit, pickled onions and coriander-infused honey, and Clarksburg bean purée with dragon mushrooms. The bar shakes things up too, with original cocktails like the Sacramento Summer with lemonade, pilsner and mint. And don’t miss the luscious ice cream sandwiches filled with Gunther’s vanilla ice cream.
