Fable Diner: Modern Diner in Mt. Pleasant

Fable Diner is a modern take on the diner concept brought to you by the same people who brought you Fable Kitchen on West 4th. Walking into this location at the corner of Main and Broadway, there’s no denying that the appearance harkens back to the diner vibe, complete with booths with old-school countertops.

Back in mid-November, we dropped by for an early lunch on a pleasantly sunny Vancouver afternoon. Instead of ordering from their breakfast menu, we opted for something a bit more substantial and started off with the Fried Chicken & Grits ($16). The hominy grits that they prepare here are thick and coarse. Personally, I prefer grits that are finer and creamier in consistency. While I found the fried chicken to be just okay here, I did like the addition of the pickles that accompanied the meal.


Next up was the Meatloaf Sandwich ($14) served open-faced with mushroom gravy, blue cheese butter, and crispy onions. The meatloaf really sticks to your gut but I found the sandwich was on the dry side and really needed more gravy.


Overall, while it was a fairly nice looking diner, I thought the food was just okay. Perhaps some of their other dishes are better.

  1. thank you for your visit. As mentioned on a couple of the restaurant review sites that this same blog is published on… Both the Chicken and grits and the sandwich tried get such good guest feedback. Great pictures! If more sauce is preferred any time, just let your server know. Happy to supply. Thanks for the feedback and hope to see you back.
