My wife and I had a nice breakfast here. Lots of food for the $ and it was quite tasty. Staff was very responsive and kept our coffee's topped up. Highly recommend.

I ran in here for a quick dinner - ended up with an enormous, delicious salad (and would totally have gone for something heartier if I'd been hungrier). There are mini jukeboxes at each table - non-functional but made for an interesting piece of decor. Good value for money, no frills, no fuss - a really solid place to get... More

Went here with my adult kids. Three of them are vegetarians or vegan. They had regular food for the rest of us. Very good food and service. I will go back the next time we go to Vancouver

My wife and I went here for breakfast and the food was ok, there was nothing especially good or bad about it. I gave it an extra mark due to its unique 50's style décor but unfortunately it seems it is in need of upkeep. Everything from the seats to the walls seem like they need repair, so it is... More

We knew this place was popular so we lined up and made it in on the first round. Very small restaurant. You had to access the bathroom by going through the kitchen. The food was very tasty and the service was excellent even though there was only 1 waitress. She was super efficient. When you get your bill, they also... More

Great place, oozes with history. The menu has good variety, well priced. We forgot to ask if the juke boxes work, each table has one.

Tiny little "hole in the wall diner". Fantastic food and service providing great value. It is a small space so be prepared to wait or sit at the counter. Granville street and surrounding area can be bleak in the morning so it looks like a dodgy area but really it is fine. Easily the best breakfast we had in Vancouver.

This was a family outing before a show. The neighbourhood is entertainment by itself if you like to see addiction in action, but a great advantage of this restaurant is its proximity to the Orpheum. We had a great server, very enthusiastic and personable. We were a little on the early side for dinner, so it was not too busy.... More

If you enjoy jukeboxes then the Templeton is the place for you. Breakfasts, burgers and shakes appear to be the order of the day. Patrons are friendly as are the wait staff. Of course I'll return..............and soon.

Staying in Granville Street

Neighborhood Profile
Granville Street
Granville Street spans many, multiple city blocks and has become so fastidiously known for its nightclubs and watering holes that it's fondly nicknamed the city's 'Entertainment District.' Friday and Saturday nights are the most popular and lively, with young revelers taking to the streets in droves and keeping the party going until late. Granville Street, being mostly open to pedestrian-only traffic, has a healthy social life along its main thoroughfares, even outside of its cafes and pubs, spilling onto the sidewalks. The locals are chatty, the shops at its expansive Pacific Centre Mall are trendy, and the whole area seems to be on a sugar rush: in a good way. Exuberance and camaraderie classify this neighbourhood.
