Gem #52: Norma’s Cafe
Dining & Nightlife Dallas (Oak Cliff)

Oak Cliff just wouldn’t be the same without Norma’s Cafe. Since 1956, Norma’s Cafe has been serving up Texas home cooking to generations of Dallasites and visitors. The original location on Davis St. is like a big, happy family kitchen where everybody is welcome and–in fact–where some patrons literally get their three squares a day. Norma’s also deserves a good citizen award for supporting countless local charities and good causes. Be sure to save room for pie.

    Norma’s Cafe is a Dallas staple! Consistent great breakfasts, and dinners, for a low price. Everything is homemade and delicious! No matter what time of day, I always have to get a slice of pie too. The fact that I can take DART to get there, makes it so easy to get my favorite food in town!
