SO Good!! – Having come to Chapel Hill from the New York/New Jersey area aka the Land of Diners, this place has easily replaced if not surpassed the need for good breakfast food. This cozy shop offers the best waffles in town, good coffee, great omelettes and the friendliest service. My husband and I have gone often enough it's like going into Cheers when we go in--everybody knows our name. Get there before 10:30 am on weekends, though, or you will wait for a table!
The only place – I drive 20 miles from Raleigh to eat at Ye Olde Waffle Shop. It is the only place in the Triangle to eat breakfast.
cheap food with a side of great service – nowhere can you get two pancakes, eggs and bacon under $5 anymore... here you can, with a side of some of the more friendly people I've met. They always greet their customers as you walk in the door, and make sure everything is alright during and after you're done eating.
Another fine Carolina tradition – In three words: Big Jim's Hashbrowns. What better staple to help you through a rough morning after pulling an all-nighter. A meal in itself, hashbrowns grilled with onions, peppers, mushrooms and cheese (optional). Of course, the home-made pancakes and waffles are great too. The wait can be lengthy, but it is worth it!!!
This IS your parents waffle shop – Since the Porthole closed, 4 Corners has become a trendy place with a number on it and Spanky's no longer has a Sunday Brunch with a 4 egg omelet on it; this is the only place in Chapel Hill that's still the same. (Even the basketball team had a loosing season)
10 – Almost every two weeks a co-worker and I go to Ye Old Waffle Shop. I really enjoy the atmosphere and the staff is very friendly, especially the cooks, who offer stimulating conversation to those seated at the counter. I recommend this place to anybody who likes great breakfast food.
