Norm's

This Googie icon opened its first location in 1949. There are still 17 locations open in Southern California.

 

The first Norm's restaurant was designed by the architectural firm of Armet & Davis (Louis Armet & Eldon Davis), who are referred to as the "Frank Lloyd Wrights of the 1950's coffee house." They also were pioneers of the entire Googie architecture movement.

 

11001 W. Pico Blvd., Los Angeles CA.
