I had heard about the Wet Hen Café somewhere, and when our sister and brother in law were in town we thought we should give it a try. So glad we did. This tiny little café is not in the best location for traffic, or exposure but clearly doesn't need it! We arrived around 9:45 on a Sunday morning and... More

Had a wonderful breakfast here! Hot coffee and the good was also hot, not just warm. The quiche was homey and tasty. Because the prices are so low we got to have 3 entrées for a normal price we eat at two. Definitely would detour to come here again!

My test for a place like this is the Pancakes, Eggs, and Omelets. I walked out satisfied, but unimpressed. Yawn

I had some extra time to kill between classes and I had seen cute commercials on tv. I got a beautiful ham and cheese quiche "to go" and it was perfect. Great taste, amount of pie, flavor, ham pieces and cheeses. Perfect for those who neglect themselves in the morning.

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
