The Normal Diner

225 E. Apache Blvd.
Tempe, AZ 85281


  • $$
  • Breakfast all day
Housed in an old ASU-adjacent IHOP restaurant, Normal Diner offers modified diner fare and all-day breakfast dishes, many tarted up with chic ingredients from local vendors, and nearly all of them worth a try. Presentation is important here; so standard fare like house cheddar biscuits and gravy and red quinoa and kale salad come out looking great and tasty pretty darn good, too. Red velvet chicken and waffles aren’t to be missed, and chocolate and brioche bread pudding is a great windup to a nice diner meal.
