Looking for a new place to try. This is the one. The wet hen always has great breakfasts. I usually get the quiche but have also tried the eggs benedict. The portions are ample and the fresh fruit is actually really good. I am a picky eater and I really like this place.

This place is small but cozy. They have a great menu and being Gluten Free, eggs and bacon are always safe (as long as they don't mix it with Bisquick like other places do...blah). Friendly service, GREAT food and location was easy to get to. nom nom nom

Good portions; not huge (wasteful), but perfect size. I'm 6' and 238#. As you might figure, I have good appetite! And yet, I don't understand why so many other places insist on shoveling food at you.

The place is situated in a strip mall setting, but don't be fooled, it is quite cute on the inside for a casual breakfast. There is also a little covered patio with a few outside tables. I had eggs Benedict which was served with potatoes and a side of fresh mixed fruit and it was lovely. Hubby had Pancakes with... More
