We have gone to the Wet Hen several times in the past for lunch. They cook fresh turkey every day, and the various types of turkey sandwiches they serve are to die for. Yesterday, we had ordered four of their whole quiches for a family brunch at our home. They were ready for us when we got there, complete with... More

This is not your typical cafe. You order your food at the counter and place a number on your table to have it brought to you. Not a big deal, but worth mentioning. Ordered biscuits & gravy. No flavor and one of the biscuits was rubbery. I won't return.

Clearly this is the place to meet a friend for a sandwich if you live locally. The chicken sandwich I had was made with fresh ingredients including actual hand-sliced roasted chicken. The bread was not the greatest - supermarket type rolls. That would be my only complaint. Fresh home-baked cookie too. Nice spot if you need to stop and work... More

After reading the reviews we expected more. We should return to give it another chance! There are so many great places in Reno who consistently 'wow' us with amazing food and service!

The Wet Hen is where I go when I don't have time to cook a healthy meal. From their sumptuous breakfasts, hearty lunches and baked goods, the Wet Hen won't disappoint. Fresh ingredients with homemade offerings there is a plate for every palate. I love their Favorite Quiche, as well as their soups, salads and sandwiches. They even make great... More

I love going to the Wet Hen Cafe for breakfast. I try to vary my item choices every time I come here, but their Wet Hen Benedict is my absolute favorite, and I love their potatoes and it's a dish that I certainly will not get tired of. Their crepes are definitely another item I order regularly when I visit,... More
