“Just an okay coffee shop”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

They have a strange menu. The service at most of their restaurants range from fair to poor depending on the location. Almost all of their restaurants are very noisy. The food is fair at best and they have very limited desserts.

“Kinda ho-hum.”
Reviewed March 21, 2012

Safe chain. Nice to have a local California chain. But they copied Denny's. Could be so much more.

“comfort foods”
Reviewed February 29, 2012

It is almost impossible to get a good bowl of clam chowder in Southern California. This is particularly true at the nicest seafood restaurants in the area. So either drive up the beautful western coastline, or have a delicious bowl at Norms. Everyone else I ate with was impressed with their food also. big healthy portions, well cooked, and reasonably priced. Coffee was good too. Our waitress was a super nice lady also.

“A bargain!! Get their daily breakfast deal”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

I went to both Norms and had excellent food and service both times. Their breakfast platter is two eggs, two pancakes, bacon, sausage and ham for $5.99 or $7.00 depending on the day of the week. Very accomodating staff who keep the coffee flowing, service is quick, and there is plenty of parking although the lot does fill on busy days. There are handicapp parking spaces available close to the door. Highly recommend for any meal.
