  • Amazing food, great service, very easy to eat here as a vegetarian and or with food allergies. Bathroom is in the kitchen, but staff is super friendly so its not weird. Vegan mushroom gravy rocks!
  • Much of the interior, decor, furnishings date back to the 50s. Worth checking out.
  • Big ass breakfast is easily the best hangover meal in the city - served until 3pm.
  • A pretty good diner in the heart of the Granville area
  • Not sure what the fuss is about. The brunch is mediocre - pancakes & eggs were undercooked & the maple syrup was watered down. Also, the waitresses had an attitude throughout the meal. Never again.
  • Try the BLT - Best with a Caesar salad, they make their own dressing...
  • Server is so abrasive here!!!!
  • Try the Mangled Eggs!!
  • Give yourself at least an hour to eat; the nonstop rush keeps the kitchen backed up. The wait staff is pretty solid though. The Templeton is laid back and stays open til 11 weekdays and 1am weekends.
  • The Templeton on Granville is a good breakfast and lunch counter serving up strong coffee and old-school egg breakfasts and pancakes in a retro chrome interior. Wake up with hearty fare and good food.
  • Vegan? Get the lentil loaf or vegan chile.
  • Good food. Unfriendly staff
  • The Templeton's motto is "Quality Food, Snappy Service," but that's only partially correct. This Granville diner, a favorite haunt, has been discovered. Expect waits. They need to hire more staff.
  • Try the Blueberry Banana Pancakes
  • Try the The Worlds Best $5.00 Milkshake - #20120918 It is the best and thats no pulp fiction...
  • The curry scrambled tofu is absolutely perfect.
  • Mangled eggs are outstanding. The staff are great and you can leave your name and grab a coffee quick!
  • Great poutine for a diner! Yum!
  • Hollandaise on the Eggs Benny I a bit too lemony but overall great value.
  • This is the best place for breakfast in downtown Vancouver. Often a 10 min wait, but totaly worth it.
