A local recommended Dish as an alternative to fast food since I had time to kill before heading beach to the airport. It's a little place with about 20 tables. It was featured in 2010 Diners drive in and dives on Food Network. You order the food at the counter and the food is then delivered to your table. I... More

Dish is one of those special neighborhood eateries that features bright table cloths, happy staff and fresh, farm to table soups, sandwiches and panini's. We had a choice of many restaurants for a business lunch today but the one I wanted to return to was Dish. As soon as you walk into Dish you are greeted as much as a... More

I had found a review about this place on Trip Advisor and decided to check it out. I had a little trouble finding the place as the signs were not as visible from the way I came in. My first impression was to go to another place as they must have had a big catering job going on and were... More

We went to Dish for a late breakfast and only one of the four was slightly disappointed. The food is fresh and well prepared. The bacon, though, is incredible. One in our party had the yogurt, granola and fruit bowl. While the granola and fruit were great, she was disappointed in the yogurt which she said tasted like it had... More

Whenever I see a restaurant called "Dish," I go there. So far, it is working! This casual place offers an interesting menu, good food and friendly service.

Had breakfast here in September with a friend, very tasty food! Fresh ingredients, friendly staff, casual and interesting atmosphere. Short, easy drive from downtown, very much worth the effort to visit. I loved the 60's and 70's tables and chairs, and similar decor, it was like a mini trip down memory lane in my childhood kitchen & dining room. Most... More

Everything is tasty here that I have tried so far. Only eaten their food when they catered some of our company lunches but they never let us down. Their banana bread is the best bread I have ever had in my life, too. Highly recommend.

This place is a gem. My boyfriend and I visited Reno in late May because we were scoping out apartments for a few days because we were moving to the area. We are big Triple D fans and saw that Guy had stopped here and had the "cowgirl." So naturally, my boyfriend and I made a trip here and, oh... More

I found out about Dish Cafe from two sources- I saw it featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives (with Guy Fieri- Food Network) AND when we subscribed to the Reno Gazette Journal, Dish Cafe's owner writes a weekly food column for the Nevada Food Section. Her recipes always sound tasty and fresh, so when my husband and I found ourselves... More
