Rio City CafÃ© is situated in beautiful historic Old Sacramento, overlooking some of the most prominent landmarks in Sacramento. The Sacramento River runs by our spacious outdoor patio, with spectacular views of the historic Tower Bridge and the Ziggurat (pyramid) building.
Rio City CafÃ© opened its doors in May of 1994. The building, designed to replicate a steamship warehouse of the late 1800’s, is open, airy, and stylishly rustic. It adds an elegant touch while still maintaining the historic feel of Old Sacramento. We display a comfortably casual setting, with indoor and outdoor seating. We can accommodate large parties and banquets, as well as private parties in our banquet room for special occasions. Or just simply enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine and the view in the outdoor cocktail area. During the colder months, enjoy the view from inside near our cozy fireplace.
