This place is a gem. My boyfriend and I visited Reno in late May because we were scoping out apartments for a few days because we were moving to the area. We are big Triple D fans and saw that Guy had stopped here and had the "cowgirl." So naturally, my boyfriend and I made a trip here and, oh... More

Bf said a little too much gost cheese on his tri tip but he scraped it off and still enjoyed. The next morning we had breakfast. Both had... More

I found out about Dish Cafe from two sources- I saw it featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives (with Guy Fieri- Food Network) AND when we subscribed to the Reno Gazette Journal, Dish Cafe's owner writes a weekly food column for the Nevada Food Section. Her recipes always sound tasty and fresh, so when my husband and I found ourselves... More

Location was a little weird, but the food was good. Dessert was amazing. Unique menu. Would definitely go back.

We were only in Reno for a few hours one day and chose this restaurant based on the Trip Advisor reviews. The quiche and cupcakes had my attention. We arrived around 2 p.m. on the last day they would be open prior to their 2-week closing for Christmas. Unfortunately they were out of both quiche and cupcakes. We settled for... More

We have ha some of our best lunches here. Small, super cute with natural local ingredients and a friendly staff. Nancy and joe both great regulars and I have waited 45 minutes at lunch for the cupcakes to be available as my husband the baker believes they are the best he ever had. The quiche is a must. All salads... More

It's in a brick buildling. The adress is clear to see but the Dish is small and hard to see while driving by. You walk in pick up a menu, which is limited, make your selection and walk up to the counter and order. A little bit unconventional. I had a handcrafted mocha and a breakfast sandwich on special bread.... More

An excellent intro to Reno cuisine! The restaurant felt like a family kitchen, and the staff made us feel like relatives. The food? Mind-blowingly fresh and delicious. Go for the specials, but don't even think about leaving without trying the quiche. The one drawback was lack of close parking (we had to park on a side street), but it's worth... More

Whenever I travel for work (which is a lot), I avoid chains and try to hit up local places featured on various Food TV shows, especially DDD. Not all live up to the hype but this one exceeded it. As soon as I saw the Cowgirl sandwich featured on DDD I knew I had to try it and boy was... More

While performing at Harrah's Reno with The Four Tenors, we came across Dish Cafe. Owners are beyond friendly and accomplished. The cowgirl tri-tip sandwich is amazing. Awesome selection of other sandwiches, soups, quiche and baked goods. We went several times and brought friends, too! Kind of hard to find, but worth it!
