As greasy-spoon diners go, Norma’s Cafe is among the best. The original location opened in Dallas more than half a century ago, and has since developed a devoted cult following. Now, Norma’s will bring its classic home-cooking to yet another Dallas location.

Announced today, Norma’s Cafe will open a fourth location in Dallas this spring. The new location will be a “modernized update” of the original Norma’s on West Davis in Oak Cliff, and will look much like the locations built in North Dallas and Frisco in recent years. The menu, including those aforementioned Mile-High Pies and fluffy yeast rolls, will stay the same.

The new Norma’s Cafe location joins a relatively buzzy dining district in Dallas, as it will be built just across North Central Expressway from NorthPark Center and across the street from the Shops at Park Lane. With this opening and the impending arrivals of Blatt Beer & Table and other concepts just a few exits down at Preston Hollow Village, North Dallas will have plenty of exciting new dining options by the end of the year.

“The Norma’s Cafe family is looking forward to expanding our reach in the Metroplex and creating new relationships with those in the area who may not be familiar with our Texas home cooking and hospitality,” Norma’s Cafe owner Ed Murph said in a release. “This is a big year for us, as Norma’s Cafe is turning 60 years old. Adding to our growing family is one of the best ways we know how to celebrate, and we’re so excited to get settled into our new Park Lane location.”

The newest Norma’s Cafe location will open in Caruth Plaza in “late spring.”
