The cafe is a quaint place on the corner of a major intersection, The food is good and in large portions and the staff is friendly. I stop here daily during the week and never fail to see a smile on the employees faces.

I work right around the corner and love coming here for breakfast (when I wake up for it haha) and lunch. Unfortunately I haven't had the budget (not that their prices are to high; simply just a broke young adult learning her fiances) on a regular bases, but the times that I have it's wonderful. The employees are kind, the... More

I wasn't too excited when we walked in and realized you order at a counter, but there was no reason to fear! They serve an organic, locally roasted coffee and great food. I had crepes with homemade apple compote and my husband had biscuits and gravy. Both were excellent with generous portions. We will be back!

Wet Hen is our favorite breakfast destination. The potatoes are to die for and all the food is fresh and well prepared. We go back week after week and the selection never get old.

We have been regulars at this great little family-owned cafe since its opening several years ago. Their breakfasts are outstanding, as are their lunches and bakery items. We highly recommend this cafe to anyone who is looking for fantastic food, fast service, a friendly Cheers atmosphere ("where everybody knows your name"), and reasonable prices.

Took my girlfriend there for brunch a few weeks back. And wow was I impressed. Breakfast was home cooking, staff and management made sure each and every customer was happy with their food. Came out hot, yummy and the coffee was endless. A great little hideaway. Small and quaint. Will definitely go back there!

Whether you are in the mood for breakfast or lunch, this is the place. Home made soups with spinach salads or real turkey sandwiches all served with home made cookies. The best apple pie ever. Even better than Apple Hill on HWY 50
