“Amazing selection for Breakfast”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

If you are looking to splurge US$1000 for breakfast, this is the place. Hugh selection of breakfast dishes from sweet to savory. Not everything is crazy price. In fact, most are reasonable for their portion. The coffee are expensive. Expect to pay double of most other restaurant. Make sure you book in advance, otherwise expect a 30 minute wait or more. Try the crunchy French toast!! Yummy!!

“Lovely experience for breakfast”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Had high expectations given the prices for breakfast and Norma's didn't disappoint. Great quality food and service. Delicious, promptly served. A real treat. We shared 2 dishes, 1 savoury breakfast tortilla with salsa and the chocolate peanut butter waffle servings were more than enough for 2, but wanted to try so many things on the menu! Would definitely return.

“Inventive breakfast”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Saturday brunch at 10AM for two couples. Seated right on time. Perfect poached eggs on the Upstream Eggs Benedict. I would have liked it better had they used English muffins instead of small pancakes, but that's just me. Smoked salmon and LOTS of it instead of Canadian bacon. Excellent Hollandaise. My wife had the artichoke version with a teeny piece of artichoke. Just OK. Great bread. Lovely atmosphere. A little expensive.

“overrated breakfast”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

this claims to be the best breaky in New York! I don't think so. At over $200 for 4 of us, i found it excessive and not that impressive. It looked pretty good, but..... the experience left a lot to be desired.

“Poor experience”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Booked here after recommendations from friends. Location is great, we were greeted professionally and the waitress who served us was lovely. The menu is good with a quirky touch. Having ordered eggs and bacon, we waited almost 45 minutes for our food to be served. The tea we ordered was cold by then but fresh pots were brought promptly. My wife ordered a glass of water which only arrived after the third request. The food was plentiful, nicely presented and tasted good, especially the apple smoked bacon. I have paid much less and been served much more quickly while paying half of the price. The overall value proposition, we felt, was poor.
