AboutYe Ole Fashioned

Ye Ole Fashioned has been a local staple since 1972, when Rod Lapin opened the West Ashley café. Since, it has grown to seven locations in the lowcountry area, including the two Summerville stores owned by Lapin’s son, Todd. At just 24 years old, in 1990, Todd Lapin opened his first Summerville location on Trolley Road, and then his second store on Main Street in 1996. While each Ye Ole Fashioned puts their own twist on menus and interiors, their devotion to outstanding customer service and serving up large portions, in a family friendly environment, holds true throughout every location.
