Food Network Showcases Metro Detroit Restaurant

Dorsey Culinary Academy Celebrates National Cherry Month in February 1

Food Network Magazine recently set out on a cross country search of sorts to find the “ultimate” breakfast each state had to offer in a piece called 50 States, 50 Breakfasts.  Now, we all know that Metro Detroit has some serious culinary cred, so it’s no surprise to any of us that they named a restaurant in our backyard as their top pick in having the ultimate breakfast in Michigan

The Flytrap, a Finer Diner

The Flytrap in Ferndale, MI received the designation as the ultimate breakfast in Michigan.  Located on iconic Woodward Avenue, the Flytrap has been teasing the taste buds of Metro Detroiters for over 10 years.  The Flytrap has daily specials (called “The Daily Buzz”) and customers can dine in or carryout (no surprise, their carryout service is called “On The Fly”).  As unconventional as the name may seem, don’t judge this book by its cover (so to speak) for one second.  The name has only added to the restaurant’s unique charm, eclectic feel, and of course the delicious dishes it serves up to its patrons, so much so, it’s also been featured on the hit show Diners Drive-Ins, and Dives.

Entrees at The Fly Trap are known as “blunch,” hearty with a breakfast twist.  Food Network Magazine featured their dish “The Cowboy Curtis” in their piece.  When you order “The Cowboy Curtis” you can expect a cut of steak served with two fried eggs, garlic potatoes, toast, and their “Wildwest Sauce,” described as “ketchup with a kick.”

If you want to check out The Flytrap, you can visit their website at or you can stop in and check it out for yourself.  They are open Tuesday through Friday from 8AM to 9PM and Saturday and Sunday from 8AM to 5PM.
