Don't Miss It: Magpie's BLT


The BLT is an enduringly popular sandwich, yet many versions you find of this humble American nosh can be disappointingly lackluster. But not at Magpie Café, where the talented kitchen team elevates this dish to swanky, farm-to-fork status. Constructed on an excellent ciabatta roll, the sandwich features thickly cut, perfectly-cooked bacon, feisty sprigs of watercress, and the pièce de résistance: sweet, absolutely ripe, juice-drenched heirloom tomato slices – the very essence of Sacramento summer. Accompanied by Magpie’s signature purple potato salad, this is one BLT you’ll definitely want to seek out while it’s available (the menu changes frequently).
