Review: Fly Trap


This morning, we attended my absolute favorite diner, the Fly Trap. Right in the heart of downtown Ferndale, this “finer diner” is an ever-bustling hub for all sorts of people, locals and out-of-towners alike. Immediately struck by the eclectic feel, you’ll notice varying and eye catching art from sculpture and portraits, to the vibrantly colored Mr. Bunsens burning an ant with a magnifying glass. One thing I have always enjoyed is a different set of salt and pepper shakers on every table. But, let’s get on with the food, as that’s why we’re here…

(Blue Heron: rumble of eggs with arugula, goat cheese, and corn Parmesan fritters)

I can’t start a meal with anything less than a granola bowl, and crab cake appetizer. The granola is full of various nuts and shaved coconut, sliced apples and banana, and topped off with a dollop of yogurt. The amazing crab cakes (hands down the best I’ve ever had), are served with a green chili tarter, alongside greens with a phenomenal red chili vinaigrette. As far as the rest of the menu, you absolutely can’t make a wrong choice. I can steer you in the direction of a few favorites I always fall back on, such as the Green Eggs and ham, (poblano pepper pesto scrambled eggs) and the Huevos Rancheros. Then there’s my personal favorite, the Red Flannel Hash, hot spiced beef brisket, with red beets, onions, and potatoes. Don’t forget to try some fresh squeezed tangerine juice. Oh, and I feel its important to mention that the coffee is delicious!
