Never fails

Whenever I see a restaurant called "Dish," I go there. So far, it is working! This casual place offers an interesting menu, good food and friendly service.

Had breakfast here in September with a friend, very tasty food! Fresh ingredients, friendly staff, casual and interesting atmosphere. Short, easy drive from downtown, very much worth the effort to visit. I loved the 60's and 70's tables and chairs, and similar decor, it was like a mini trip down memory lane in my childhood kitchen & dining room. Most... More

Everything is tasty here that I have tried so far. Only eaten their food when they catered some of our company lunches but they never let us down. Their banana bread is the best bread I have ever had in my life, too. Highly recommend.

This place is a gem. My boyfriend and I visited Reno in late May because we were scoping out apartments for a few days because we were moving to the area. We are big Triple D fans and saw that Guy had stopped here and had the "cowgirl." So naturally, my boyfriend and I made a trip here and, oh... More

I found out about Dish Cafe from two sources- I saw it featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives (with Guy Fieri- Food Network) AND when we subscribed to the Reno Gazette Journal, Dish Cafe's owner writes a weekly food column for the Nevada Food Section. Her recipes always sound tasty and fresh, so when my husband and I found ourselves... More

We were only in Reno for a few hours one day and chose this restaurant based on the Trip Advisor reviews. The quiche and cupcakes had my attention. We arrived around 2 p.m. on the last day they would be open prior to their 2-week closing for Christmas. Unfortunately they were out of both quiche and cupcakes. We settled for... More

We have ha some of our best lunches here. Small, super cute with natural local ingredients and a friendly staff. Nancy and joe both great regulars and I have waited 45 minutes at lunch for the cupcakes to be available as my husband the baker believes they are the best he ever had. The quiche is a must. All salads... More

It's in a brick buildling. The adress is clear to see but the Dish is small and hard to see while driving by. You walk in pick up a menu, which is limited, make your selection and walk up to the counter and order. A little bit unconventional. I had a handcrafted mocha and a breakfast sandwich on special bread.... More
