The only thing bad about the Templeton is that they are located too far from home (a 3.5 hour train ride) to go there every weekend. The food was amazing and the service excellent. Go with the blueberry banana pancakes with the real maple syrup, turkey sausage, and preservative free bacon -- all are "can't miss" items. One last thing... More

My wife and I went here recently for breakfast. Looks like an old school style diner. Each table has a small juke box you can pay and play. When we went the place was pretty full and they only had one server. She did an amazing job multi tasking and making sure everyone was attended to in an expedient fashion.... More

Stopped in for breakfast and this place did not disappoint. A classic dinner serving good sized portions, just what you would expect.

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 literally stumbled into this tiny diner type restaurant while searching for a place to eat near our hotel in Vancouver...having just disembarked from an Alaska cruise.The neighborhood we were in was full of noisy bars and fast food places...no decent restaurants at all. We sat at a table covered in laminated comic strips...with an old-fashioned juke box on the... More
