If you were hoping for a long-winded origin story about the prism through which we define our cuisine, you won't find it here. We just want to feed you cheffed-up versions of comfortable favorites that pay attention to details.

We draw our inspiration from all over the place, so rather than worrying about boxing ourselves in, we just have fun making delicious, craveable food with big flavors.

Look forward to seeing you!

    This cafe is located inside the Hilton curio Whitney hotel across from the Eldorado Hotel downtown Reno . We’ve eaten there for breakfast and dinner and all of the meals were excellent . Shrimp and Grits were excellent, salmon dish my husband ordered was delicious . Breakfast burrito was over the top yummy. The bar has tv’s which is nice is you like to watch sports . Service was great too . Highly recommend cafe Whitney .

    We went on on Mother’s Day and were extremely pleased with our dining experience. The varied menu providing outstanding options including shrimp & grits, cast iron New York, and soy chicken thighs. Each entry was prepared perfectly. Terrific specialty drinks and a full bar. Will definitely be back.

    Maitre’d warned us that the service would be slow because they had several large parties so we weren’t surprised. He bought us drinks which was very kind. Considering the large number of large parties and the size of the wait staff the service was pretty good. The food was very good. The cocktail menu was very creative. I wish they had more comfortable chairs, they were metal and not comfortable.

    We were pleasantly surprised. The food was actually delicious. The atmosphere seems very low-key - nothing fancy. But the food seemed more thoughtful than we expected. And the service was cheerful and efficient. We had a really pleasant Easter brunch and we will be back.

    St. Patty’s day they were unfortunately understaffed. Took 45 minutes to get a drink, which arrived after my lukewarm dinner. Wonderful waiter who was very apologetic and very professional. Overall love this venue.
