In the fall of 1979, five of us transformed an old funky cafe into a handcrafted
veggie restaurant. Our menu was limited and our patrons sometimes forced to
imitate sardines because of our lack of space, but each year we added more
delectables to the menu and more "Normalites" to the venue.
Through the years the emphasis in our cooking has been using fresh
ingredients (organic when available), inventing original recipes (born from
creative chaos!), and including thoughtfulness in preparation and
presentation of food. All these elements produce what we call "GONZO
CUISINE." We're ever mindful, as well, of maintaining a cooperative work
environment (even the cooks do dishes!), a unique style, and a "growth
through challenge" attitude. All of this makes us "NEARLY NORMAL."
Enjoy your meal in our cozy downstairs seating area, or our spacious upstairs dining room, or take advantage of our shady,
green, private and magical outdoor setting (weather permitting).
We are located at 109 NW 15th St. Corvallis, OR. For directions Click Here.
