I love this little café. My 7 Y/o and I have to eat here at least once a month. Try the Favorite Quiche. My daughter loves the piggy pancake with bacon.

The atmosphere is very nice. It is a small restaurant ran by some of Reno's locals. Their food is to die for. Especially their Chocolate croissant and the caramel macchiato coffee. Much better than Starbucks! I also love their ham & swiss croissant...you can taste the pineapples that they used to bake their savory ham in this croissant....I highly recommend... More

The Wet Hen is my favorite. I've introduced many friends and family members to the Wet Hen Cafe over the years. They always want to go back. From their rustic, home style dishes to their yummy baked goods and coffee, it's a winner!

Great little breakfast spot, also great lunch sandwiches. Wish the restaurant was a little bigger. More and more are finding my little breakfast hideaway.

The Wet Hen's food and service are great. If you are looking for a burger and fries, this isn't the place for you. The menu is unique , they seem to put a twist on something so simple and turn it into a delicious favorite. I've tried their spinach salad, a couple different sandwiches, and veggie quiche. The only con... More

This small café has it all. Breakfast (breakfast sandwich) and lunch (The Monet) meals are all delicious because they use only fresh ingredients. When we're in Reno we eat there frequently...love their cookies too! They also have many creative specials. Try it, you LOVE it!

I love this place! You must try the Gobbler and apple pie ala mode! In the warmer months you can sit indoors or outside. The patio is nothing special.
