Location and contact

Cafes have been the social gathering place for many towns since the 1950s. A place where family and friends enjoy delicious, hearty meals and talk about anything on their minds. Here in Dallas, Texas, a place like that began along historic US Highway 80 and still exists today. Since 1956, Norma's Cafe has been a Dallas institution for Texas home cooking. From an award-winning menu to famous Mile-High Cream Pies™, the food and atmosphere will take you back in time and create a memory you can take home with you. Welcome to good food, good company and good times. Welcome to Norma's Cafe!

My husband and I ate breakfast here during a weekday. Loved the eclectic and casual decor and really easy vibe. This was a true "home cooking" experience. We liked our breakfasts so much that we decided to take some pie home for desert that evening....More

My wife and I came for a brunch time meal and it was great. They said hello when we walked in and it was a personalized hello where you can tell the employees love workings there unlike a forced “hello” that sounds depressing and everyone...More

This is one of the few places in Dallas, TX you can still get great tasting cooked vegetables. The veggie plate gives you a choice of 4 veggies plus fresh made corn bread muffins that are not too sweet or "cakey". Ordered hot herbal tea...More

I have been eating at this location for years and have never had one bad meal or bad service. The daily specials are great and the vegetable sides delicious. The rolls are awesome but don’t fill up on them. You will not be disappointed

Norma’s has a wonderful selection of breakfast foods that are available throughout the day. The rest of the menu is great too, but I just can’t resist breakfast when I’m here. The pie looks awesome, but I never have room!
