Restaurant Review: Frankie's Modern Diner (Nanaimo)
|Frankie's Modern Diner Signage|
"Fresh, Local, from scratch cooking -
Our goal is to provide local, sustainable products and prepare field for fork meals for your pleasure. We cook as much as possible from scratch and fresh daily. Menu items are created and tested by our culinary team and we welcome your thoughts and comments"
This is straight from their menu.
They have one of the largest menus I have ever seen, including ALL-DAY breakfast. So if you're a breakfast lover like myself, you'll LOVE this.
We arrived with a party of 6 and we were all impressed with the extensive menu.
I had a hard time deciding on which eggs benny to try as they all looked delicious and unique (there is even a duck benny with truffled hollandaise!). I settled on the gluten-free Don Juan - on polenta cakes (corn mash patties) with grilled chorizo, roasted red peppers, portobello mushrooms and CHIPOTLE hollandaise! Served with BC redskin hashbrowns and a fresh fruit brochette. The full order was $14 and half $10. Very reasonable. The chipotle hollandaise was unreal!

Frankie's Modern Diner gets kudos from me. I love the "from scratch" and "local" food options coupled up with the modern diner style of the menu and restaurant decor.
