If you're looking for simpler times and a solid breakfast, look no further than Ye Olde. They've been serving up classic breakfast items for over 40 years, and the menu hasn't changed much—meaning no fancy brunch items (no kale here). What they do is a fantastic selection of no-frills diner food: waffles and pancakes with a variety of topping options, omelettes and hashbrowns. Ye Olde has served breakfast and lunch seven days a week since the day it opened in 1972. Every menu item is made to order and served hot off the grill. Their customers are a mix of locals, professors, students, UNC staff, and visitors from out of town.
