Their burger is excellent and the garlic mashed burgers amazing. Lots of vegetarian (not sure if vegan) options, any vegetarian will be happy in this place. One juke box per table and an amazing (old) music selection. Definitely a place to come back.

Great classic diner with the best bacon ever. Highly recommend arriving early on the weekends or you will wait a long time as there is limited seating. The best breakfast in Vancouver? Maybe...

The Templeton is very adorable, with friendly staff and yummy well priced food. Brunch can be very busy but if you get their early and put your name down you won't be waiting too long. The Templeton is very vegan friendly and even gave me a *lightbulb* moment after I ordered a bloody mary when the server let me know... More

We went here for breakfast, which is being served till 3pm, and it was very good. The server was very friendly and gave good recommendations. I had the trucker breakfast and the portion was perfect and tasted great. The diner itself is really tiny, but cozy. Old school juke boxes are available at each table.

We sat at a table covered in laminated comic strips...with an old-fashioned juke box on the... More

My partner and I went to The Templeton while on a short stay in Vancouver. After reading some mixed reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. We arrived when all the booths were filled and with one server on duty (and two cooks). As soon as we walked through the door we were greeted like old friends, and then given... More

This little place had breakfast here with my daughter. It was very busy but the wait was worth the experience. The waitress was amazing handling the waiting crowd and serving up customers with an amazing breakfast! Love the ambiance! We will return!
