The Templeton

This morning a dear friend and I decided to conquer the "spring forward" lack of sleep by heading to the Templeton for brunch.  All I have to say is that this place is spectacular!  You literally feel like you've stepped back in time...old school diner booths, a jukebox at every table, even the equipment behind the counter is vintage.  I absolutely loved it!
I was also very impressed by the food.  I was fully ready for greasy-spoon diner food, so I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that all of the breakfast meals are made with fresh natural ingredients, including natural free-run eggs, home-made turkey sausage, naturally-smoked preservative free bacon and they even have vegetarian and vegan options.  Definitely a little something for everyone...not to mention that the food was delicious and the prices were more than reasonable.
Needless to say, I thoroughly enjoyed my brunch, and will definitely be making my way back to The Templeton in the future!

My half of our Baked Grapefruit with brown sugar and pecans.  ($4.00)  Such a delicious treat!  The perfect brunch dessert.
My brunching partner's Mangled Eggs: 3 eggs scrambled w/garlic, bacon or veggie bacon and brie inside a toasted croissant, served with rosemary potatoes.  ($8)
My Farmer's Breakfast: rosemary potatoes sautéed with veggies, melted aged white cheddar, topped w/two eggs any style, fresh salsa and sour cream.  ($8).  This meal was delicious and the rosemary potatoes were out of control!  Definitely a good choice.

The icing on the cake?  You get a Moos chocolate cream and butter toffee candy with your bill.  Awesome!
The X that marks the spot!
