We stopped here with a party of 11 for breakfast. We were seated immediately. The service was fast and friendly. The food was great! The fruit was fresh, the bacon was thick and the pancakes were huge. Definitely a place I would stop at again.

My grandma took me to this hidden location. It's definitely a fresh taste and a great eat. I loved it and recommend it when ever I can. Just one helpful hint go just before noon time because the lunch rush they get mobbed with people.

Small cafe in a strip shopping center. You order at the counter and they bring you the food. The service was quick and the food arrived hot off of the grill. The eggs were fresh and the omelets were fluffy. Very clean and obvious a local place because Jackie greeted everyone by name when they came in and the ladies... More

I really was wanting to like this place. It is about two blocks from my home and I need a go-to diner for breakfast when I don't feel like preparing at home. This place has been open for quite some time but I have avoided patronizing for fear of being disappointed. Alas, I was disappointed. The menu is rather limited... More

We visited the Wet Hen because of good reviews -- and were encouraged by the number of local regulars who were happily greeted by (probably) the owner / manager. The food was as good as we hoped: eggs benedict, other eggs, plus delicious apple pie (as advertised in pictures and mentioned in reviews). Good coffee as well. The Wet Hen... More

Environment - The restaurant is very clean and well kept. The decor is simple, yet elegant. There are enough windows to allow lots of natural light. And, it is far... More

I had the Black Forest Eggs Benedict and have never had such a well prepared plate of eggs Benedict! The flavors were well balanced and can only guess they used some sort of magic to cook the eggs so perfectly. The atmosphere may be a bit cheesy, but that's quickly forgotten after the first bite. The quality of ingredients and... More

Ate there both coming and going on a three week trip. Nice variety, great breakfast sandwich, friendly staff and good baked goods. Will eat there when in Reno.

Drove from downtown Reno after reading good reviews of Wet Hen. Had a great breakfast of eggs Benedict with basil hollandaise sauce. Great coffee too! Very friendly server. Cozy and well decorated interior with outside seating available. Very reasonable prices. Nice offering of pastries, although we did not try any. Get. Only a 10-12 minute drive from downtown, very much... More
