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.

Food at Wet Hen Cafe has improved since they opened. It is better than Denny's but doesn't rise to that level of being special like you get with Peg's or some of the other restaurants. So I can't give it four stars.

My family and I went in for brunch on Sunday morning. The food was good. Very friendly staff. A little pricey. The eating area is a bit small.

Highly rated on TripAdivsor. Took the family for a late-ish breakfast. You order at the counter from the overhead menu. Inexpensive, ordered a slice of quiche, couple of orders of biscuits and gravy with sausage, strawberry crepes, and a tuna sandwich. Everyone enjoyed their food. Noticed the locals were friendly and came in at a steady clip.

We had lunch at the Wet Hen and it was very good. We had a Spinach Salad and a Grilled Tuna Melt. Both were tasty, and served promptly. The restaurant is small with only about 7 tables. You order your food, get a number, sit at a table, and the food is served to you. Total cost before tax and... More

Let me start by saying I boycotted this place for a long time because my chinese resturant was in the location and I was mad the Wet Hen took over. Well, that was my loss, this place is great. Quiche, coffee and huge sandwiches. Outdoor seating is a bonus in the spring. Love this place. We order to go on... More
