Very quaint and cute cafe. Food was delicious. Great prices and homemade soups. Mushroom soup was spectacular. Breakfast was just as good. Smoky bacon with eggs and pancakes. Good coffee also. I will be back soon. Must try lunch and more soups.

4 star ratingBreakfast My husband and I were visiting Reno for the weekend and love trying new restaurants. We saw the Wet Hen had great reviews and had to try it out! We were staying downtown so we did drive about 10 minutes to find it.

The ingredients were fresh. No wait for a table. Staff were very polite and friendly. My husband a great chef himself, was impressed by the eggs Benedict, he said they were excellent! I had the veggie omelette and of course had to add some bacon and salsa. Their salsa is made by their chef and was great! I really enjoyed the food was very fresh, everything was cooked just right. We would say this is a good solid restaurant.

4 star ratingExcellent food in a small space I stopped in for lunch and had a quiche, salad and soda. Everything was tasty and the staff was friendly and patient with a new customer.

The restaurant was busy and seating felt cramped.

5 star ratingBest Hometown Cafe in Reno! If you want a warm, friendly environment with super country rustic food, this is it! Don't forget to have some of their famous cookies especially the chocolate espresso chocolate chip.You won't need a coffee pick-me-up when you have one of these.

Thank you for treating all who come like family.

4 star ratingGood food, friendly, homey feeling The food is great. The turkey with cranberry sauce is the best anywhere. I have it every time I go, although the rest of the menu it tempting.

I think it is family-owned, very personal service. The oatmeal cookie that comes with the sandwich is a nice treat.

I usually take out, it is a bit crowded and noisy for conversing over a meal.

4 star ratingNice breakfast spot with patio Had a delicious egg white omelette on the patio. They serve organic coffee. Many pastries and apple pie.

Counter service but they do deliver the food and check on you to make sure everything is as ordered and up to your expectations.

5 star ratingFresh and Friendly We made this our first stop after landing at the Reno Airport. The food was wonderful and the staff VERY friendly. We enjoyed the daily special, turkey cranberry sandwich,a bowl of soup and homemade oatmeal cookie. Skip the fast food. Eat fresh!

5 star ratingQuiche Lorraine Has to be the best quiche ever! I have eaten here close to 100 times, and always order the Quiche Lorraine, not sure how the other food is as I would be sad to miss out on an opportunity for their quiche.
