Breakfast is the cure for the bleary-eyed
By AUSA DEMAO
' ornings ought to be against
the law. It is true, however,
.that there are people who
actually enjoy that sort of thing
(masochists). But for those who ac
tually get up in time to eat breakfast,
here's a handy-dandy guide to the
places to eat breakfast in Chapel Hill.
And those who don't have the word
breakfast in their vocabulary might
learn something too.
Breadmen's: The truly great thing
about Breadmen's is that they serve
breakfast at any hour. Or conversely,
one can order dinner at any hour.
(This for the people who get dragged
to breakfast but can't bear the thought
of eggs.) The omelets are highly rec
ommended; they must use about four
eggs each. !
Located on Rosemary Street,
Breadmen's is relatively inexpensive
as well. It's open from 7:30 a.m. to
2:30 p.m. and from 5 to 1 1 p.m. on
weekdays and from 7:30 a.m. to 11
p.m. on weekends.
Bruegger's Bagel Bakery: This is
probably the most inexpensive place
to eat in Chapel Hill. A mere 37
cents can buy a plain, poppy, ses
ame, garlic, onion or pumpernickel
bagel for breakfast or any other meal.
The favorite seems to be cinnamon
raisin. Bruegger's also offers a variety
of toppings, including cream cheese
(plain and flavored), lox, and practi
cally any kind of sandwich meat and
Bruegger's is located on Franklin
Street beside Ben &. Jerry's. From
Monday to Saturday, hours are 6:30
a.m. to 9 p.m. On Sundays, Bruegger's
is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Carolina Coffee Shop: The cul
tural place to dine, the coffee shop
offers "the elegance of classical mu
sic." They also offer fresh-ground
coffee, eggs Benedict and eggs
Sardeau, as well as more mundane
breakfast foods such as pancakes and
French toast. Check out the Tivoli
Grill, an omelet that includes on
ions, peppers and mushrooms.
The coffee shop is located across
from the NCNB Plaza on Franklin
Street and is open Mondays from
