Magpie Cafe

A great eatery, Magpie Cafe, is located on the rejuvenated R Street corridor.  The menu options are not your usual fare, but include such items as Crispy Pork Belly with Azolla figs, the Smoked Trout and Del Rio Tomato Sandwich, and  my favorite, the Vietnamese Sandwich – Banh Mi: Niman Ranch tri tip, pickled daikon and carrot, South East Asian herbs, jalapeno, miso aioli.  It tastes great and is served on Magpie’s own homemade artisan bread.  Though thinly sliced jalapenos (my nemesis) come on the sandwich, I can actually tolerate the heat!

I could try to describe more about Magpie, but I think this quote from Magpie’s website says it best:

Magpie offers menus inspired by the fresh, high-quality ingredients available to us seasonally, with an emphasis on those from Northern California. Our food celebrates the idea that a meal should combine the simplicity of quality with the complexity of variety.

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.
