About Rio City Cafe

Who We Are

Rio City Cafe is situated right on the boardwalk in the beautiful, historic Old Sacramento Waterfront near some of the most prominent landmarks such as the historic Tower Bridge, the Ziggurat (Pyramid) building, and much more.

Rio City Cafe is a family-owned business that opened its doors in May of 1994. The building itself is historic and was replicated after a steamship warehouse set during the Industrial Revolution and Gold Rush in the late 1800s. It brings an open, airy, and rustic feel with that classic touch that ties in with the rest of the Old Sacramento Waterfront District. Being both a relaxed and formal setting, we are great for any occasion or celebration. We can accommodate large parties and banquet events, as well as host private parties in our banquet room for special occasions. During the colder winter months, enjoy the view from inside near our cozy fireplace.
