This place was very disappointing. The eggs weren’t good, and the food was overall very bland but the waffles weren’t terrible yet not enough to go back to.

Ye Olde is a chapel hill staple and incredibly tasty! It is a wonderful place to grab breakfast/brunch and worth the hype. The staff has always been super kind and work very quickly to get your food to you. On Thursdays you get pancakes for free if you order from their first four breakfast plates and they’re quite filling. 10/10 recommend if you’re looking to grab breakfast here!

This place is very warming. From the time we walked in until the time we left everyone was so welcoming and warm. Taryn is a rockstar. Thank you so much for all you do. The food was good and came out quickly. They even had a notepad and crayons to help keep my 2yo occupied. I definitely recommend this place.

A little bit of a gimmick... The malted waffle thing.... It was really good though. The malted waffle ?

Good food. Good service. A favorite spot when we are in town!

Love this place! It's a Chapel Hill icon. The only thing I miss is the scoop of butter that they use to put on their waffle but probably didn't really need it?.

Best place for breakfast in Chapel Hill by far. We go here every time we are in town to get pecan waffles and jalapeno omelets. Nice location in a historic building on Franklin Street- feels like you are in a time machine. Friendly service and priced right.


Ye old waffle is a small, old fashioned breakfast spot right on franklin street in the heart of chapel hill. This is a must try for a simple breakfast with a light, airy waffle. You can sit at the bar top individually or head to the back for group seating in cute little tables. Get there early because there is a line of people waiting for it to open on weekends.

Feels like my daughter and I both grew up together on Franklin St. I was never much of a cooker-this was one of our homes away from home for Saturday mornings. Kept us full all day!

Fantastic waffles, with eggs cooked just how you like them. And if you're not in the mood for breakfast, they serve a good selection of burgers.
