Old School Diner. Good Menu with breakfast all day. Western Omelettes or the big bowl of Chili is what I like.

Whole family agrees - 5 stars! Breakfast was wonderful all the the way around. Truly crispy hash browns, fluffy pancakes, even a delicious healthy(ier) omelet. Great service too. No wait at 8a on a Saturday. Best breakfast we had in Norman.

Really good food, friendly staff and good vibe. You might have to wait for a table, and there's a good reason why. Good food people.

Breakfast was scrumptious - highly recommend the home fries. We tried the kitchen sink omelette (chefs choice on ingredients-but you can tell them what not to choose) - it was delish! Can't wait to come back and try their lunch!
