Welcome To Mad Hatter
In 1935, Newmer Ham opened Ham’s, offering curb service and deli-style food. Al Freiberg and Carl Herbst took it over in the 1940s. The popular restaurant easily accessible to what would become UNCG and Grimsley High School became a hangout for students.
Restoring the building and maintaining its original floors and ceiling is just a part of the history that remains in this classic restaurant from 1935.
Mad Hatter is comprised of a small group of people with a passion and energy for this business and a tremendous amount of combined experience.
The Mad Hatter is a place with a rich history, a place with a unique culture, a place to create new memories.
Mad Hatter is Greensboro’s local getaway.

“I will be back for that frittata !!”
“Went for brunch with girlfriends. I had the frittata pomodoro with bacon. The fritatta was delicious and flavorful. Great bacon. Delicious muffins are served with the meal. They have $9 carafe of bloody Mary’s and mimosas. It turned into a day drinking event. Good times. One of my girlfriends had a slight problem with a mixed drink. That manager came over personally and apologized and asked how they could improve on it. Wow. So impressive they genuinely want to offer a better experience.
Very attentive to the customers. I will be back for that frittata !!”
“Had their breakfast Brunch today and it was great. The Pancakes/Chicken was some of the best I have had and the Huevos Rancheros were the best I have had anywhere. Also the Hadder potatoes were fresh and tasty. Service was excellent and the prices very reasonable at $10 a plate.”
