Breadmen's: as good as ever.. I went to school in Chapel Hill and was a frequent customer from 1977 to 1980. Although my daughters are now in school at UNC, I had not been back to Breadmen's for years. I checked out the reviews on this web site before deciding whether I should go back. I found the reviews really confusing; some are really good, but others are highly critical. I am happy to report that we had a great experience. My omelet was fantastic, the coffee was hot and good. the service (from Jermaine) was prompt and friendly, and the prices were very reasonable. The place reminds me of the old location accross the street; same wooden tables, and the same logo on the menu. The place is not fancy, but I think it is certainly worth a visit.
I went there involuntarily on a sunday morning with my family, and now i go there every weekend morning voluntarily. The food is not expensive and amazing! The coolest people work there, and amazing service. I recommend the corn beef hash!
Go someplace else. Terrible service..
My husband and I made the mistake of having breakfast there with our daughter yesterday. The food was acceptable, not outstanding, but the service was awful. I would have liked a refill of my coffee but our waiter never came by. It was Monday morning and there was hardly anybody there so it wasn't that the place was busy.
We waited for almost 30 minutes for a check with our dirty dishes stacked on the table. The owner was chatting with some patrons and never noticed. We finally went to the counter and asked to pay and the waiter came by mumbling, "Thanks guys," in a monotone. I was going to call the restaurant to complain but from some of the other posts, it sounds like the owner is just as bad as his staff.
Poor Customer Service. My family and I had the bad fortune of choosing Breadmen's for breakfast last Sunday morning. My wife and I had just flown up from Florida for my granddaughter's 4th birthday and decided to take her mother, father, brother and the other grandparents out for a meal. I had been to Breadmen's many times in the past on my visits to Chapel Hill, without incident. We were seated promptly and the waiter took our order. After over thirty minutes and after other customers, who had arrived after us, had ordered, eaten and left, my son in law walked over to the counter and asked to talk to the manager. The owner came over and without hearing our complaints, accused us of creating a problem. He yelled at us to GET OUT! He would not listen, threw to-go boxes on our table and screamed for us to leave. Not a problem man...we left and will never come back and intend to tell every one we see of the outrageous treatment that we received at what we once considered a Chapel Hill tradition with our family. The owner seriously needs some kind of counseling for his own good and that of his customers.
Irrational Owner. We ate at Breadmen's this morning for the first time since moving to CH. We weren't overly impressed by the hostess' attitude or the waiter. But, the worst part was when a family of 6 or so plus two small children was RUDELY kicked out of the restaurant! They were there before us, received their food after us and were trying to make the best out of the situation. When they asked for a manager, the owner came over. They had received their food by then and wanted to just let him know that, although they were perfectly willing to stay and pay for the meal, they were disappointed that the food had taken so long. The owner became completely irrational and started yelling at the family who was just looking on in shock. He even made up things they had supposedly said! They were still polite yet he told them to get out of the restaurant. My family was just shocked that this was even happening! He then went in the back and returned with to-go boxes, threw them on the table and said (really yelled) pack up your stuff and go. They were just dumbfounded that this had even happened, as were we. We will NOT be going back because of the rudeness we witnessed.
Poor experience and Rude owner. I attended a breakfast sponsored by the current school in which I am employed and which was catered by Breadmen's. The breakfast was scheduled from 7:30-9:30am. I arrived at 9am and was surprised to see that they had run out of food. I was distraught over this and attempted to understand why the food ran out. I was then informed, rudely, that it was not Breadmen's fault and that I should be more respectful of my comments. Frankly, the owner of Breadmen's was very rude and unapologetic, while he attempted to blame others for the fact that either they did not bring enough food or gave too large of portions to the attendees. Regardless of the quality of the food, I do not recommend supporting such a rude individual's business.
Yumm.. Just moved here and have only eaten there once, but I had the best omelet I've ever had. Very fluffy - cooked perfectly.
good vegetarian patty. When I went to Breadmen's for lunch I was dieting, so I ended up getting a veggie patty and fries, which was good, but I felt as if I'd wasted my time there because the veggie patty tasted like those you buy from the grocery store. I can't say it wasn't good, just usually when I go out to eat; I would rather try foods that are much different than those that I can prepare easily at home. My boyfriend, he got a burger and some fries and loved his meal, he left wanting seconds because he can eat, so neither of us had any major problems with the food, the service was fine. Our meal came out prompt.
good food & a good deal. I like Breadman's a lot. I used to go here alot for lunch when I worked in Chapel Hill. It's usually crowded all other times. The food is always good, very rarely had problems. It's also a very good deal price-wise. Wish I had more time to go back.
A favorite with college students for consistently good comfort food at reasonable prices..
Casual to the extreme, this is a great place for those who want breakfast without having to don their Sunday best. While its ambience is anything but upscale, Breadmen's is a Chapel Hill fixture for Saturday morning, hangover-curing food. All the standbys are present: pancakes, omelettes and grits, in addition to an ample lunch and dinner menu. The menu also offers several vegetarian options.
