We travel with a group of Happy Campers and have always enjoyed eating at Hoovers. We hope they will reopen in a new location before we return to this area.

Ok.. so if you like large portions (or like to share), then this is your place. On the north end of Templeton, your first impression when you enter reminds you of a greasy spoon or truck stop diner. However, that's where the comparisons end. The food is well prepared, flavorful, and ample, but typical of a small town diner. The... More

There are few restaurants left that mark a place and time for a community as well as Hoover's does. Hoover's is the purest form of a family restaurant in which everyone knows each other, both employees and customers. I have only had the pleasure of eating here as meal time dictates during drives from Carmel to Los Angeles so my... More

Hoovers is a great place for breakfast and lunch. The service is good and the food is plenty. You will need a take out box for sure. The place that the restaurant is located is selling their property and Hoovers will close in November, however, the waiter told me that they were looking for a new location so if you... More

We came here for breakfast and I'm glad we did. I had the Rudy's special and my significant other had the kitchen sink omelet. Both entrees were delicious. The sourdough toast was buttered to perfection. The service was excellent. My cup of coffee was always full. Great experience and I highly recommend. Tip: the kitchen sink omelet is HUGE. It...

At the recommendation of a local chef, we had breakfast here while visiting family. It is located next to a livestock yard and the rustic interior is decorated with pictures of local ranchers and western memorabilia. The breakfasts are huge and this is the place you want to go if you are a meat lover. We particularly like unique local... More
