Counter service with order brought to your table. Nice menu of standard breakfasts and omelettes served with well executed potatoes and toast. Vegetarian omelettes were perfectly prepared with excellent mix of mushrooms, onions, and spinach. Self-serve coffee and nice outdoor seating. Very popular with locals. A bit out of the way, but definitely worth it. One of the best breakfasts... More

We ate breakfast here two days in a row while in Reno, and both times, it was excellent. The prices were extremely reasonable, and the food was fantastic. On day two, I had stuffed french toast, and it was one of the best breakfasts I've ever had in my life. I travel all the time and eat in tons of... More

Cute little place to grab breakfast. A little over priced but going out to eat is always over priced.

So tired of fast food in the AM. Great food reasonably priced. Clearly a place where the regulars go. I had the Pig, pancakes and eggs. The bacon was the best. You can also phone in orders. They are open early but close at 2:30.

I had the quiche Lorraine with green salad. The quiche was great - very tasty - if a little dry. The salad was super. All with me enjoyed their sandwiches. The breads are great. Again, the sandwich with real roasted turkey was a little dry. The best part of the lunch, though, was the little cookie that came on the... More

Wet Hen is a nice and quiet place to have a wonderful meal and conversation. Everything we have tried there is excellent and the ownership and staff are a true joy.

This is a cute little cafe with excellent fresh roasted turkey sandwiches as their specialty. They also offer a nice selection of baked goods and breakfast items but my favorite was the spinach salad. It gets busy at lunch but service is quick and friendly and many of the people waiting are there for take out orders.
