Breakfast outing

I've practically been on bed rest for two weeks after minor surgery and decided to get out before going stark raving mad. I wanted something new and tried The Fly Trap Ferndale.

We were inspired to visit this cute and friendly stop in Ferndale, MI but were underwhelmed by Guy Fieri's Triple D recommendation. The restaurant is a quaint stop and loaded with local patrons but the flavor of our PHO soup fell short of what we expected. In fairness, we will go back and try something else. Presentation was beautiful but... More

I honestly have mixed reviews about this place. The food is good, depending on what you order. The gingerbread waffles with their fried potatoes is absolutely delicious. The pho bowls are yummy as well. However the last time I went, I ordered one of the breakfast dishes with black beans, eggs etc. I was not impressed. It was totally bland... More

We had "The Boot", "Veggie Rumble" and "BLAT+C". Large portions, cooked perfectly, and great toast on the side. I get the hype now. Try their home made hot sauces, I picked up a bottle on the way out. I thought it was great value for the money. We came on a weekday afternoon so had no wait.

I found the waiting list of magic marker on a roll of packing paper a little too cute for my liking. One couple waited 5 minutes in line before they realized they needed to add their name to the list. Not a good start to their experience. We only waited 5 minutes for a table at 1pm on a Saturday....

Okay food. Unique but I wouldn't say I loved it. Had brunch, the hash had an odd flavor. It was a nice size restraunt, very busy for brunch time and odd hours. It was okay. But u don't know if the food is with a second try.

Have only had breakfast here a few times but it was always yummy. Most dishes are not your standard fare and are very unique. If you want to try something different, experience this restaurant. It is very small so there can be a wait during busy times. Service was excellent. I highly recommend the Fly Trap.

Had the salmon burger which was great, and my family had the cheese steak sandwich which had real cuts (thick) of sirloin steak, not steakums grilled up. Both were very good. Nice to try something different. Good location on Woodward with open air windows too.
