Stone House Cafe

Prepare to be transported: to another time and place. Nestled in the renowned Old Southwest area of Reno is the Stone House Café. Three generations of Abowds have grown local restaurants into a successful hospitality brand recognized throughout Northern Nevada and the Stone House Café is the latest creation. In a distinct 1900’s stone house perched on the corner of two thoroughfares, Paul Abowd created a timeless and impeccably appointed establishment. His concept was one born out of love—love of food, love of being the best and bringing the best to the customer, love of the never-ending challenge and love for one woman, his beloved wife Adele and her vision. The Stone House is almost an homage to her.
