What a delicious place for breakfast or lunch. The wait staff are awesome! Everything is fresh and everyday there is a different type of jam. I had the lemongrass bowl and was not disappointed. Yum!

Everything I've ever tried had been fantastic. Love the Italian grinder. The Gingerbread waffle is very good and we sometimes split it as a dessert. Small trendy diner. Great service. Never had anything I wasn't pleased with.

Ok, not an original title, but this is a great breakfast joint. The dishes are hearty with welcome twists on your favorites. It's fun just reading the names on the menu. Expect a wait for Sunday brunch, so order a coffee or mimosa meanwhile. You'll be glad you hung around.

Coffee was good and the special egg rumble was great. Just what I needed after my run. Service was quick and friendly, I will definitely be back.

The Fly Trap has a great menu and everything I've tried has been delicious! You can expect to wait a bit for a table on weekends!

A lot of fun decor to look at. We loved all the cute salt and pepper shaker sets on the tables as well as the fly pics throughout the restaurant. They were super busy when we were there but we enjoyed just watching everyone. Loved the signs on their single stall restrooms..."Either" and "Or". Our food was good as well.

Very cool looking diner with hearty delicious food that is not your everyday "diner" food. Our breakfast was fantastic! The bread/toast was so good, we bought a loaf to take home with us!

Really cool little place . Food and drinks are great. I go at least once a month. Garlic potatoes with breakfast are great and a really amazing Bloody Mary. Menu is pretty different than the average place around.

We're always game for trying new restaurants. I had higher hopes for this restaurant after seeing it mentioned on Food Network a few years ago. The homemade jam (strawberry with vanilla) was delicious! Everything else was fairly underwhelming. Food needed more flavor, waitstaff not attentive -- didn't keep the coffee flowing, slow to check on us or get our bill.... More
