Welcome to McLean's OLE tIME cAFE...


Born in 1956, McLean's Ole Time Cafe is a family owned and operated restaurant located in
​Zebulon, North Carolina... in the Triangle East area of Wake County. Our customers are like family,
and drive from miles around to pull a chair up to our tables. Known for generous portions, our menu
has something for everyone, young and old. We are open daily for breakfast, lunch and supper and you can enjoy an old fashioned breakfast buffet on Saturdays and Sundays. Our banquet room has ample space for small and large private gatherings where we host class and family reunions, professional associations, bus tour groups
​and all sorts of meetings. It can also be divided for 2 smaller meeting spaces.
​And if it's off site catering you need, we can handle that also... pick up or delivery!
Don't miss out on our baked goods. Decorated cakes for all occasions, including weddings and birthdays can be ordered along with our delicious homemade pies, cakes, pies, and seasonal goodies.
