Friendly and attentive staffs, good value for the brunch menu (you definitely get more food than you can finish). Milkshakes were really good, and not too sweet.

The only thing is that the potatoes were a little too salty for my taste.

Lots of tables were available and we were sat between the two bars and where servers get their items for customers. We could see the kitchen and the tense interactions between the staff.

Food was great, but the ambiance was left to be desired based on where we sat.

In this day and age, going out is so limited and customers should be provided with better experiences, felt the experience was matter of fact.

Thanks for your visit and the feedback. We’re glad to hear that you enjoyed our locally sourced house-made food. I apologize that the ambiance experience didn’t match your expectations. Our seating system depends on safety standards. Only certain tables may be sat. Please know that if a concern is made known to us, we will do our best to fix it up (in this case move the party).

Quiet diner that I’ve been meaning to try and finally got the chance! Tasty, pretty food, hipster. Loved being able to have breakfast items for dinner! Great selection of menu items, even for my picky kids! The Vanilla Banana milkshake is a must-try, the cornflakes surprisingly made it extra yummy! large enough serving for 2 to share. Very casual and relaxed, quiet. Would come again.

It’s a modern looking, spacious dinner located in the Mount Pleasant area. Food was interesting and creative, although it may not be for everyone (eg. Duck breast with kimchi on a pancake). It was a bit too salty for my liking though. My server was a super cheerful lady. I really like their weekend brunch. You get your main dish, a baked treat, a biscotti, tea (or coffee), AND another drink for only $25.

The choice of "Mains" is limited, likely due to Covid19, though. Ice cream is available by itself (not many places offer that!).

Pulled pork sandwich on a bun comes with lots of fries.

Hi, Jennifer! Thanks for your feedback. I'm glad the rest of your family enjoyed our house-made dishes. It's something we've worked hard on. And I’m sorry the server didn't get the information that we had just sold out of the features until after they were described to your group. It does happen sometimes - especially when it is busy that other folks who have had housemade features described to them choose them first and they become sold out.

We felt safe, as well as well-fed and well looked after. Music too loud, made conversation difficult -- calling it "energetic" in the ranking choices is far too kind. Apart from that detail, a great choice. Fable seems to have adapted well to difficult circumstances and deserves to continue to prosper.

Thanks for your visit. It’s great to hear you appreciated our safety measures and house-made meals. I really value your opinion and be assured concerns about music are noted and have been passed on to the whole management team to be more aware of this. Please do say something on a return if this impression is given. You likely may not be the only one to feel this way, and the team should be made aware. Hope to see you again!

Thanks for trying us out and also for the feedback. Since our sourcing is quality and local and everything is housemade, it is admittedly more expensive to produce.

The beef brisket was not brisket it was cubed meat that tasted like plastic. I've never seen anything like it. The potatoes were overdone. I ate the eggs, the kale and the avocado.
