The food here was very tasty and the service was prompt and friendly. Prices were reasonable. Sunday breakfast was crowded, so expect to wait after 10 am, but it's worth it.

We had a wonderful brunch in this casual and pleasant restaurant. The service was very good, the food was great and the coffee was wonderful. The forager omelette was one of the best I had eaten. The filling of varried mushrooms, really caramelized onions and smoked cheese was very generous and delicious. The homemade condiments alone were worth the price... More

So much to choose from, for meat eaters and veg-heads alike. I had the Forager, which is mushrooms, caramelized onions, smoked gouda and greens in an omelette shell.

Fly trap is well known in the area for its innovative, offbeat, and delicious cuisine. Walking in, it has a diner vibe, but the service and food is fun and better than you have any reason to expect. If you come to Ferndale, and you really should, you must eat at the Fly Trap!

I was finally able to try Fly Trap. On previous visits, the line was too long. It was worth the wait. Obviously popular with those wanting to buzz in for some delicious good, Fly Trap isn't overly fancy but assuredly sports a friendly social atmosphere. The cuisine is creative and simple; pleasing comfort food. Our lunch was delicious. We tried... More

Met a friend for breakfast and went with high expectations. Nice, eclectic interior (Husky tool chests for servers stations). Sat for a bit, waiting for coffee. Placed my order for Red Flannel Hash and my friend ordered the B.L.A.T.+C. from All Things Eggs. Ran into someone else I knew, who raved about our impending experience. Eh. My "hash" was sliced...

I have been there 3 times in the last 6 months.. 1 time with a group of 4 ranging in age 39-65, the next time husband and... More

Stopped in for breakfast to meet some family. Had a terrific omelet! Have to say the potatoes could have been hotter (lukewarm at best) but the toast was warm a rarity these days. There were a number of "different" omelets on the menu and would definitely go back to try them out. A bit pricey for breakfast though.

We sat at the bar for dinner where we were quickly greeted and served. We were informed of the specials and everyone was very pleasant. We had the crab cakes and a pasta dish(can't remember name) and the dragon fire chicken. All the food was very fresh and tasty. A lot of the food items have some heat which we... More

We have been here for lunch a few times over the last few years so we decided to try it on a Saturday night for a quick dinner before a movie. Not as crowded at dinner but the food and service was great. I had the Cajun pasta which had a nice kick to it. My wife had an omelet... More
