Bacon-covered burgers, chili-cheese-soaked fries, turkey-stacked sandwiches, syrup-slathered pancakes, and meat-melded comfort food dance across the pages of Norma's breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu. Welcome the sun back to its rightful place atop the sky's throne with a three-egg Spanish omelet (with onions, bell peppers, cheese, and salsa; $5.50). Or ease into the evening with chicken-fried steak ($6.95), which is "as big as the plate it’s served on, and with a good, crunchy crust," according to D magazine. But Norma's real forte is her thick slices of mile-high cream or fruit pie; some say they're the best this side of the Mason-Dixon Line (there is one better pie directly on the Mason-Dixon line, but it's covered with bees).
Buzzbrews Kitchen is not your average coffeehouse. For one, it sees some of its largest crowds in the wee hours of the morning. Two of the shop’s three locations are open around the clock, catering both to late-night carousers and early-morning commuters. Whether you think the morning starts at 9 a.m. or 3 a.m., you’re likely to find something to love on the 24-hour menu, which loosely focuses on traditional breakfast and Mexican fare. Mochas and lattes are popular throughout the day, and burgers are a hit at lunch and dinner. There’s also an impressive selection of wines and beers, which explains why some guests show up with sleeping bags and a desire to never leave.
