Since 2005, Magpie has been bringing seasonal and local elements to catered events throughout the Sacramento area and beyond. From wedding brunches and hors d'oeuvres parties to box lunches for business meetings and seminars, Magpie offers menus inspired by the fresh, high-quality ingredients available to us seasonally, with an emphasis on those from Northern California. Their 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.

"This casual, forward-thinking, creative restaurant on R Street has quickly established its reputation as a destination for people who are serious about food.
With planning and teamwork and passion, Magpie has already achieved greatness – not just by Sacramento standards but by any standards. Plunk this restaurant down in the big leagues in North Beach or Greenwich Village and this cafe would thrive."
