Not long ago, it was hard to get a cup of coffee in Norman that didn’t come from IHOP or a gas station. And while Starbucks locations now abound, many Norman residents have felt their hometown was lacking serious java. Enter Gray Owl Coffee, now easily the busiest caffeine destination in Norman. Townies and students alike flock here for brews that taste great and can shake the hand of even the most hardened caffeine junkies. While customers may come for the coffee, they often stay for the atmosphere, which with wi-fi, weathered couches and an eclectic lending library, is the perfect way to kill a rainy day. If caffeine isn’t your thing, Gray Owl still has you covered. Enjoy a variety of rotating baked goods with a pot of 333 Tea – a fragrant mix of chamomile flowers, hibiscus petals and mint – served on a tray with everything you could possibly need to make your own personal perfect cup. 223 E. Gray St., Norman.
