Crown Diner

Another good ole' down home diner opens downtown.

Searching for an alternative to the fancy high-ending dining found in the downtown core? Well look no further, as Crown Diner (5171 Salter) has the solution. Feast on fine homemade goods at reasonable prices.

“It’s your typical diner food, nothing funky or weird on the menu,” says manager Michele Thompson. “The difference is everything is entirely homemade, there are no processed foods on the menu. Not even sliced cheese. It’s all fresh foods and relatively inexpensive. If you want to dine for under $10 you can, though we do have higher-end menu items too.”

Crown Diner is owned by Harvey Eade and Moody Fadhil, executive chefs from the Grafton Connor Group. The menu includes breakfast, lunch and dinner plates, although Crown is still awaiting its liquor license.

“We’ve been told we’re similar to The Bluenose Restaurant, otherwise there isn’t anything downtown like it,” she says. “The atmosphere is upscale, painted with bright funky colours. We’ve got old black and white pictures framed on the wall of MacAskill and shots of historic Barrington Street. It’s nice and bright.”
