Searched for a good breakfast restaurant near the airport and ratings were correct. Food and service was real good. I usually don't love omelets, but I was actually real impressed with the flavor of my plate. Since I live in New Mexico, I was not expecting salsa to be very flavorful or have a kick. I was very pleasantly surprised. I definitely recommend.

We are lucky to live close to the Wet Hen Cafe. It is one of our favorite places to eat breakfast and lunch. The staff is amazing and friendly. The food is excellent with a wide variety of specialty creations. I recommend you give it a try. You won’t be sorry.

Often times the sauce is heavy and the bread is either too thick or soggy and for me, if these two components are off, it throws the entire dish off. I have to say that I had the best eggs Benedict here. The bread was toasted perfectly with butter and it was quite thin than I've had at other places. It worked so well. The sauce was DELICIOUS- light and a bit zesty with just enough salt. The ham and eggs were perfect as well. Such a decadent breakfast and I scraped my plate clean.

5 star ratingGreat breakfast spot! Perfect little cafe! Great atmosphere and the service was delightful. Food came fast in good portions. Loved the sliced potatoes with breakfast but the star was the warm almond croissant!! Definitely coming back if in the area.

5 star ratingGreat spot or breakfast in Reno Very popular place. We got there around 10:30 for a late breakfast for 4, and the place was full. I can see why. Al the breakfasts are excellent. They also have some great daily specials. Excellent service. Special orders were gladly accepted.

4 star ratingNice little spot We stopped in for a late breakfast on a Tuesday. Ordered at the counter, delivered to your table. Overall the food was very fresh and tasty. The bacon was excellent, but probably wouldn't get the biscuits again. If we're in Reno again we'll be back.

Exactly what we were looking for on our road trip! Local, family owned with everything made fresh when you order it. I have food allergies and was so happy to learn that their entire bakery and cafe is nut free! The macaroni and cheese special was fabulous. The service is phenomenal and they checked in frequently.

5 star ratingHomestyle in the best way There is nothing elegant about homestyle breakfast, but that's exactly how it is supposed to be! The food is great - fresh omelettes, benedicts, and pastries. This place is small inside, so larger groups may find it difficult to eat here, but the service was friendly the entire time we were there!

Wanted to go somewhere different. Found the Wet Hen Cafe. It's small but mighty. My go to in a new restaurant is Eggs Benedict. If they offer it and it's good everything else on the menu will be too. Guess what, it was excellent. The hollandaise sauce was wonderful, just a hint of lemon and it was served with home fries that were cooked to perfection. I took one of their pastries back to my office with me for later and oh man.

5 star ratingGreat Breakfast I went to this place because of all the great reviews, we arrived around noon time. Let me tell you for the food, the service and price, were great you cannot go wrong. From the moment we entered the door we were greeted, and felt we were right at home. We ordered with no hassle, and to top it off the food arrive pretty fast. I had the biscuits and gravy and 2 sausage patties and scrabbled eggs. The other orders were a strawberry Crepe and the Hungry Rooster.There are no complaints, the plates were bear when we left, everything was eaten. They give the right amount of food, that does not make you stuff your face. If you have a chance I would say try it, you will be pleasantly surprised. Again this review is based on my personal experience. I am hoping you will have the same. Enjoy.

5 star ratingSuper friendly Breakfast spot. Stopped in for a quick breakfast last Thursday, August 1st. for the first time. One of my friends chose The Wet Hen Cafe as his family lives near by and has breakfast here frequently. The service was excellent and the staff was super friendly! Four of us met and ordered different items from the menu and everyone agreed that all of the meals were really good. I had the Biscuits and Gravy with sausage patties...Delicious! I will definitely be back! The outdoor seating area looks like a nice spot and will try that on my next visit.
