Reno has a plethora of great breakfast spots. Wet Hen, however, is our favorite. The best biscuits and gravy...served with bacon or sausage links or patties. The hash browns (really American fries) are always browned and crispy. They also specialize in quiches. You can have a slice for a meal or order a whole one to take home. I have... More

Parisian omelet was cheesy well cooked. Excellent potatoes on side. Bacon and eggs are perfect☺ Small with cozy atmosphere and friendly service.

This is a very unassuming restaurant tucked in a strip mall but I have not been disappointed yet for breakfast or lunch ! Its locally owned and serves great fresh food. You order at the counter and then they bring you your food. With lunch you even get a cookie!

My wife had a slice of their homemade quiche. Both were excellent. The bacon was the best I'd had in a... More

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
