Magpie opens for business

Staff Report

Magpie restaurant will be holding their Grand Opening on Monday at 307 S. Main Street in downtown.

Magpie will take over the location that was most recently Jessie’s but is most likely better known as Sammy’s restaurant. The location has been completely remodeled uncovering the original tin ceiling and terrazzo floors.

The restaurant will be offering breakfast daily beginning at 6:30 a.m. and lunch through 3 p.m. The restaurant will also remain open for dinner hours on Fridays and Saturdays, as well as during downtown events.

Magpie’s menu will feature as much local food as possible including baked goods.

“The River District Association is pleased to have yet another business opening in our corridor,” said Leah Tuneberg, Director. “It proves that downtown Rockford is growing and that business owners are seeing value in setting up shop here. We welcome more.”
