This has got to be the best local owned and operated eating establishment that I have found since I moved to Reno one year ago! Great fresh and quickly prepared meals at a great price. The staff is warm and friendly and the place is just so damn cute!

Veggie omelette was good but the quiche was average. Crust was not quite done. Small place inside - looks like a lot of locals go here. I would not go out of my way to go back.

We ordered at the counter, then took a table outside and our food was brought to us when ready. This restaurant has excellent breakfasts. I... More

I wish we had found this restaurant at the start of our vacation. We may have only eaten breakfast here! The atmosphere is cozy, the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. The price was very fair, even more so when compared to casino meals. A basic fried egg, hashbrowns and bacon breakfast was amazing. We also ate the Museli cereal... More

When the Wet Hen first opened we more or less ignored its place in the community and then we started receiving ads for free meals. Our surprise came as we enjoyed the different courses cooked the way they were in our growing up years. Now when the Wet Hen is mentioned in our household we know the vote will be,... More

Three of us stopped in to try the breakfast menu . I ordered their version of eggs benedict. Delicious! Their Sweet Basil Hollandaise was the perfect touch. The staff is so friendly and quickly help with whatever you need. This is truly one of Reno's hidden gems. A little off the beaten trail, and totally worth it!
