Normally the best place for breakfast in the center of town. Yesterday was an off day, slow and forgetful service. Hope it was just an off day

We just moved to the area and read about this place as a Chapel Hill favorite. Tried it for breakfast today and it was terribly disappointing. Paid $25 for a breakfast that we couldn't eat. Asked for medium eggs and got over easy which is hard to swallow, literally. I would have returned them but the waiter didn't come back and check with us on the meal. The hash browns (home fries in the northeast) were luke warm and the biscuit was just weird tasting. My Mom makes biscuits that would put those to shame. Waiter stated he was new so I guess that was his excuse for not checking on us or knowing what was on the menu. Bad customer service. Even if you don't know all the ins and outs, customer service can still be great by following a few common sense guidelines, like "let me find out". Overall this maybe be a hometown favorite and sometimes that will carry a place just because it has been around but I will never go back for another meal.

Took the family to Carolina Coffee Shop for a pregame brunch. Once again the food was very good, while we got to bathe in the nostalgia of Frankiln Street.
