Before breakfast was the first meal of the day, it was part of a midday supermeal—Dinner, Breakfast, Nash, & Young. Give breakfast’s solo work its proper respect with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of homemade breakfast and lunch fare at Wet Hen Cafe.
The comfort-fare connoisseurs at Wet Hen Cafe craft a menu of fresh, made-from-scratch favorites to satisfy customers’ morning and noontime hungers. Greet the day with a 12-ounce cup of fresh-brewed coffee ($1.45) before deciding on a hearty piece of quiche, including the lorraine, which boasts bacon, sautéed onion, and a name suitable for a yacht ($3.75). Increase mouths’ merriment with the French-inspired breakfast sandwich, choice of meat and scrambled egg on a croissant ($5.25+) while admiring the local art and goods displayed throughout the cafe. Midday diners indulge in sandwiches named after great artists, such as the Monet, which appears blurry until you step back and a heap of fresh roast turkey, avocado, and smoky bacon comes into focus ($6.95). Guests can also surf WiFi while satisfying leafy cravings with a spinach salad, adorned with bacon, chopped eggs, and dried cranberries ($3.95+).
Wet Hen Cafe
Wet Hen Café’s story revolves around poultry, from the origin of its name to its owners’ 25 clucking pets to its menu items. Buoyed by backgrounds in the restaurant business, Jackie and Don Handlin work with their son and sous chef Brandon to craft a menu of light sandwiches, soups, and breakfast meals. Named after the idiom "madder than a wet hen," Wet Hen Café churns out quiche dotted with spinach, feta, and cranberry, sandwiches layered with black forest ham, jack cheese, and brown mustard, and, of course, hearty chicken soup. The café supports local merchants by hanging and selling original artwork and selling craft honey and Blind Dog coffee.
