Hip, modern eatery serving “New American” cuisine and craft cocktails amid industrial chic décor. Probably my favorite place to eat in Norman. Everything is made from scratch, including the sauces and cocktails. Amazing cocktails! Lovely interior and charming enclosed and covered patio.

Classic meals with a modern flair, sizable whisky collection, craft cocktails and draft beer, including local beers. Beautiful enclosed and covered patio out front. Creative foods and great atmosphere, especially to get a feel for downtown on the patio, with trains going by regularly

The local hipster café. Plenty of mismatched, charming furniture to sit or lounge on while you sip your coffee and sample the home-made baked goods. Delicious muffins and scones that they make right in house—new flavors every day. Great place to sit and people watch, chat, or work. My favorite way to start the day here is to walk there first thing in the morning and sit outside, if it’s nice out, and soak in the sun while enjoying a latte. They also have a back courtyard.

Hip haunt with festive decor, featuring pints & samples of its homemade brews, plus outdoor seating. Food truck nearby during events. Roughly charming courtyard with picnic tables and some minimal playground equipment, and a stage where local musicians play regularly. Fun for adults and kids alike.

A great casual spot to spend quality time with family, share laughs with friends, or even just stop by for a glass of our prosecco on tap. Be sure to try a Norman exclusive menu item, the Denco Darlin’—it’s elbow pasta, Denco chili, cheddar cheese and two eggs lookin’ at ya. It is very popular for breakfast. Get on the waitlist online before heading over on weekends.

Some of the best thin crust pizza I’ve ever tried, lovely bar, two indoor levels and a beautiful rooftop patio and bar. 315 White St. (the tallest building on “Campus Corner”—you can’t miss it). Nice way to get a view of the whole campus, and the town for that matter. If you want to avoid the student crowd during the school year, go for happy hour at 4:00 PM on weekdays! Or early on the weekend nights. Otherwise, enjoy the multi-age, mildly bustling social scene while you enjoy the delicious food.

The best bar food I’ve ever had, lots of screens, fun atmosphere, good service. It’s a favorite Oklahoma chain. The listing here may direct you to the OKC location--a glitch in the system I guess. But there is one close by the OU campus at 301 W Boyd St
