Ferndale’s The Fly Trap has been buzzing since it opened in 2004, a 62-seat diner with a green tile facade that attracts both breakfast crowds (breakfast items constitute the bear’s share of the menu) and bar flies. Don’t order until you peruse the specials of the day, known here as “the daily buzz,” with limited plates like biscuits and gravy. Veterans know to opt for the Green Eggs & Ham (with roasted poblano pesto, jack cheese and seared ham) rather than the Eggs ala Boring (simply two eggs). You can also expect a reliable steak & eggs and a packed sandwich menu, featuring hot beef brisket and a vegetarian eggplant and mushroom number called Pea Patch. A full bar ensures the buzz doesn’t end until close.
