Great Places to Get Coffee in Norman

Gray Owl Coffee

In our opinion, Gray Owl Coffee serves the best cup of coffee. This airy, worker-owned, open-timbered shop is accented with bikes and art, creating a relaxing, hip vibe. The menu includes an array of specialty coffees, loose-leaf teas, and housemade baked goods.

“What a sweet little shop! It was homy and welcoming, the pour overs were delicious. The baristas were so friendly, personable and knowledgeable. I’m already planning my next trip back to Norman, which is a 5 hour drive, and this place is definitely on the itinerary! There’s an awesome bookshelf which our whole family was able to find something of interest on, including puzzles and card games to keep the kids entertained while my husband and I enjoyed a coffee together. A well needed moment to pause in a chaotic trip.”
