Visited for breakfast from reading previous reviews and wasn't disappointed. An old style American diner (and not the fake ones that the big chains try to recreate). A 1950s juke box at the entrance and wall mounted juke boxes in every booth give it that authentic feel. With excellent service, a very good selection and very tasty well cooked food... More

Went for lunch with a buddy, had something called the BBB BURGER...it was a great burger. Friendly staff and quick service. Definitely will be back, as i have to scratch a deep fried Mars bar off my bucket list!

The Templeton has been around forever (the 90's in when it re-changed to its current name), but it has been a diner for much longer. The atmosphere is an eclectic array of vintage diner garb partnered with a brunch/lunch menu to appease any type of patron. The service is always super friendly, the food has always been delicious, and the... More

Was so good! Had happy hour beer prices as well. Ended the meal with deep fried mars bar. Delicious! Great service as well. Fun to show my 12 year old the jukebox!

Great Diner restaurant. We had to wait about 20 minutes on Saturday around 11 am - but well worth the wait. Good portions, hot & flavourful. It has juke boxes on the wall - that actually work! The place has 12 diner seats at the bar and about 6 - 4 seater booths. The staff was hopping... and still managed... More

Cute little retro breakfast place. Service was amazing - we were seated and got coffee straight away. Food was great, turkey sausage is hard to get was fab though!

Our server was excellent and the quality of the food and the interesting choices on the menu made for quite a difficult time choosing, but we all enjoyed our fare a great deal.

The breakfast we had here was delicious and the service by Sarah was excellent. There was a lot of choices on the menu and the eggs were done exactly as requested. There are not substitutions here but you really don't need them. Don't miss this old style diner.

It is a small diner style place. We got here early for breakfast and managed to get a table without waiting. If we had arrived 15 minutes later we would had been waiting for a table. It was short staffed when we first sat down, the poor waitress had to do everything, reinforcements arrived later on. The quality of the... More

Visited around lunchtime on Sunday morning, happy to see they were still serving breakfast/brunch until around 1500, very quirky little diner if you're visiting Granville or Vancouver I would definitely recommend going in, tasty food and nice coffee at a reasonable price with friendly staff.

Staying in Granville Street

Neighbourhood 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.
