“Reno's Original Funky Café”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Reno seems to be generating a minor boom in funky little cafés. This is the original, and it's been around almost 25 years. Should that make it charming instead of funky? The food is too inventive, and too unusual, for "charming."

“70's Throwback”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

A mostly vegetarian throwback to your hippie past. Salads, Middle Eastern and Italian style dishes, good coffee and draft beer. The best pie I have EVER had at a restaurant.
