“Go Cafe Carolina Meadowmont Village”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Nice Setting inside or out, your choice. Had the Cafe Carolina Country Breakfast and was pleasantly surprised. Friendly staff the Sunday morning I was there. The Ritz it is not, and yes, plastic silverware. But they are doing a lot of things right!

“Plastic, Plastic, Plastic”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

Service is fast and the counter employees are great. The food quality is just slightly above most fast food restaurants. The baked goods are of the typical butter, sugar and salt variety. If you don't mind plastic utensils this is your kind of place.
Skip lunch time if you can. The dining room is crowded and you can easily find yourself standing with you plastic tray, waiting for a table while someone sits there doing homework or playing games on their laptop.
If you take some time to think about the quality of the food and what the actual cost if ingredients is, you will understand that this is not such an inexpensive restaurant.

“Yummy Breakfasts and Lunches!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Located in Meadowmont in Chapel Hill, this cafe has a wonderful selection of choices for breakfast and lunch. The restaurant is nicely arranged, with lots of wonderful-looking food (mostly desserts) very visible. They have wraps, sandwiches, soups, etc. You order at a counter, find a table and listen for your name.

The food is fresh and I've never had anything I didn't like. The place is quite crowded at breakfast and lunch, so plan to spend a little time there.

“Great Breakfast Peaceful Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

This was a breakfast with family and friends, which means kids too. A good variety of items. Everyone left satisfied. The service was fast. Price was right. If we are in the area will try again.

“Consistently good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

You can't go wrong here. Take home some cupcakes, too. My favorite is their sweet potato biscuit sandwiches. Oh my goodness! The bread is always fresh. Great salads. You really can't go wrong.
