“Reno's Best Diner”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

Dish Cafe is a little diner that has a wonderful selection of breakfast and lunch items, innovative and delicious. All of their baked goods, breads, muffins, scones, cupcakes, cookies, are made from scratch. Their produce and meats are organic, locally raised and produced. Trying the Cowboy Tri-tip panini is a must. The sandwiches are fantastic and the soups bursting with flavor. Last year, Dish was featured on an episode of Diner, Drive-ins, and Dives on the Food Channel; they were recently voted Reno's best caterer. It's Reno's best diner, by far.

“A bit hard to find, but worth it.”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

Good place for breakfast. Had the American which was two strips of Niman Ranch bacon, "scrambled" eggs (which I think were micro waved), a couple of pieces of cantaloupe, and two excellent slices of housemade sourdough bread which were worth the price of admission. $6.95 for the deal. Good coffee. Best part about the place is the cheerful staff that is just, well, nice. A bit of a trip from downtown, but worth it to escape the atmosphere and smoke of the casinos. Guy Fieri from the Food Network paid them a visit. Go to his site to see the video on the place..

“Absolutely delicious!”
Reviewed September 9, 2011

The tomato basil soup was so fresh and delicious! The quiche Lorraine was heaven on a plate. My husband ordered the Reuben and said it was fantastic. My son got the tuna melt and it was yummy (I stole one bite!) and my daughter got the turkey sandwich, which was piled high with yummy turkey, cheese, sliced tomatoes and greens! The restaurant is small, but we got there before the lunch rush, so our wait was minimal and we had our choice of seats! I would love to return tomorrow, but they are only open during the week. This is a must visit restaurant in Reno!

“Exceptional customer service with food to match”
Reviewed August 19, 2011

Eclectic little diner with superb food and exceptional customer service.
The staff was baking desert for the diner and I happened to ask if they had any fresh peanut butter cookies. They were out but asked if I could wait and they would bake some more. Cookies were delicious and well worth the wait. I'd highly recommend Dish Cafe for value, food and service.
