"At Wet Hen we believe that part of our purpose is to share in the responsibility of promoting the well-being of others, including the community and those around us," said Brandon Wade, kitchen manager and son of the owners at Wet Hen Cafe. "Our ingredients come from local growers and suppliers, as do the retail products we have featured on our shelves."
Founded and incorporated in 2010, Wet Hen Café came bursting out of an egg of family dreams, and a passion for succulent home cooking. The uniquely titled eatery embodies family history, a love of mouth-watering cuisine, support for the surrounding community, and a desire to give people an experience they won't forget. Whether it be superior customer service, a pleasant vibe, or the ability to actually sit back and enjoy real and fresh flavors cascading over your tongue; Wet Hen Café has a place and a plate for you.
Jackie Handlin, owner of Wet Hen Café, explains that her dream of opening a restaurant isn't just for her family; it's for the advantage of her community too. "As we grow," Jackie said, "it is our mission to make sure that you, your family and friends, other local small businesses and charities alike are benefitting from our presence."
Just a few of the local businesses to profit from Wet Hen Café are Blind Dog Coffee, Truckee Sourdough Company, and Campie's Lavender Patch. Gifts for sale at Wet Hen include handmade bath and body products from Dancing Grasshopper, and photography from Dotty Molt.
Wet Hen Café's Grand Opening is Saturday, May 7, from 11:00am until 3:00pm. The restaurant is located at 3979 South McCarran Boulevard in Reno, on the corner of Longley Lane.
