Culinary Extravaganza Norma’s

All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.
~ Charles M. Schulz

Norma’s the brightly colored open-air terrace restaurant serves breakfast all day and night. The concept of breakfast at Norma’s can be a no-holds-barred extravaganza of decadent proportions, it’s a habit picked up from her sister restaurant, also Norma’s situated in New York City. But there is no denying a contagious feeling of both calm and delight, as you pull up a chair or slide into a booth to explore the menu.

Go spare and minimalist with the simplicity of poached eggs and half a grapefruit or go maximalist with any one of the mouth-watering French toast, waffle, or pancake concoctions. Or even go gluten free, vegan or vegetarian. The white slump block and wood interior of Norma’s is an open and bright room, friendly and inviting throughout the day. It is cozy, votive-lit, and discreet at night, when the menu changes to a beautiful selection of California fresh, clean entrees prepared to classic perfection with the subtlest twist to standard. Comfortable, low-key, effortless with a happy and most amazing vibe.

Both Garden-like terrace outdoor seating, as well as, the Jonathan Adler designed interior does not disappoint. We loved the colors and all the small details of the colorful serving dishes, bright glass hippo sculpture, which was set up at the center of the table. Creative, exquisite and beautifully crafted drinks were as refreshing and delicious, as stunningly presented. The entire ambiance just makes you happy!

Our favorites: The Greens Crispy Caesar Salad – exquisite presentation and delectable taste! Angry Wings, Buffalo Fried Caprese Sticks, Brick Chicken, just to name a few. As for desert, Crumble Graham Cracker Crust Pie Crust – is to die for!

Norma’s is headed by executive chef Herve Glin. “I used to go to Norma’s in New York”, said McCurley, who was a New York resident before moving to Palm Springs. Here in Palm Springs, dine on the porch and soak up the Parker’s whimsical gardens. It’s a special spot. Indeed!

Perfect service, divine location, welcoming ambiance and dishes to impress are all waiting for you at Norma’s Palm Springs.
