Fern dishes out "flavors from the garden," which might sound bland and boring, but we've got news for you: Fern knows how to innovate and invigorate its dishes with flavor. They serve up standard veggie eats like kale chips, as well as fresh takes on traditional meals like Spaghetti and "Meatballs" and a Sweet Potato Reuben. You can't go wrong with the Om Burger—a veggie burger that'll undo any sour feelings average veggie burgers have stung you with in the past—or the Laughing Buddha Bowl—a heaping portion that changes daily, but always includes a grain, legume and, of course, veggies. The menu changes according to the season, but if the squash blossom hush puppies are on the menu, you must order them. So, what's on tap? Fern has awesome alcohol specials. There's a special almost everyday, but we're fond of Tuesdays, when select NC beers are just $2. They also have an interesting craft cocktail list that includes ingredients like kombucha, moonshine and chai syrup. We feel a little strange saying this, but it needs to be said: they have spectacular water! We've dubbed it "spa water." It's refreshing, cucumber-y and oh so delicious.
