The Magpie Café is a seafood restaurant in Whitby, North Yorkshire, England. It was established in 1937, but its building dates back to the 18th century, when it was a merchant's house.

The restaurant is known for its fish and chips and as a "bloody good fish and chip shop". The restaurant won a Coast Award for being best fish and chip shop of 2007. The restaurant has faced complaints from local businesses for its long queues. It sources its fish from the local Fishery Lockers Fish.

Ian Robson, the current owner, began working there as a fish fryer in 1979.

Two fires in the space of 24 hours caused the Magpie Café to close for repairs in May 2017, reopening in December 2017.
