Code Coffee

Code Coffee started with a simple idea: to connect the community over a great cup of coffee. Owner Destinee Sanford modeled Code Coffee to support and serve the people who serve our community: police officers, EMTs, hospital workers, firefighters, and other public health and safety professionals. The menu includes classic drip coffees, lattes, juices, and hot and iced teas. For eats, Code Coffee bakes fresh pastries and offers a variety of delicious grab-and-go options for breakfast or lunch.

Perenn Bakery

If you see a line of people snaking around St. Lawrence Ave., looking longingly for a freshly baked chocolate croissant or a buttery kouign-amann, then they’re waiting to get into Perenn Bakery. This is one of several popular Midtown Reno restaurants, so make sure to get there early before the goods are sold out. In addition to pastries and cookies, Perenn bakes a variety of breads, including baguettes and other artisan loaves. Want to nibble on something savory to balance out the sweet? Try a tartine or a ham and butter baguette.

Rue Bourbon

Get a taste of the Big Easy in the Biggest Little City at Rue Bourbon, a New Orleans style restaurant and bar serving cocktails and small bites. The food menu boasts Cajun and Creole treats, such as deep-fried gator bites with a house-made remoulade sauce, a classic New Orleans muffuletta and beignets loaded with powdered sugar. For drinks, try a Rue Bourbon Sazerac, served in a rocks glass washed with Absinthe, or a Brandy Crusta, a refreshing and deceptively strong cocktail made with Cognac, lemon juice, maraschino liqueur, Cointreau, and Angostura bitters.
