“If you enjoy a good diner, then you must go to The Templeton. Their authentic décor is still kitschy retro, though their menu has kept up with the times.  They have a great list of vegetarian and vegan options.  If you’re a veg who misses gravy or bacon with a wild passion, they use mushroom gravy and have veggie bacon, so go to town!  Meat eaters should be pleased to know they feature organic and free range meats.”

Van Eats Review

REVIEW: www.vaneats.com

Both are great for impromptu hacking sessions; especially Take 5′s comfy couches! The Templeton being a diner is much smaller but it’s nice and cozy. [more...]

Urban Vancouver Review

REVIEW: www.urbanvancouver.com

Re-opened in 1996 as the oldest classic Canadian diner in the area, complete with jukeboxes and continuous media hype, the Templeton is small, friendly, with a diverse clientele from suits to near-homeless. A patio is being prepared in the back to be open in the summer. Modernized food, such as house salad with raspberry vinaigrette and toasted almonds; 666 burger with pickled beets served with mashed potatoes “no fillers and made the way Mum intended except for the wine we added” $7.50; Portobello mushroom burger with roasted garlic and asiago served with salad and mashed potatoes. The plates are well presented, filling and imaginative. Decent wines for the locale, and beer. [more...]
