Best Healthy Lunch; 2008. It's a simple mission for owner Norma Olarte Becker of Cafe Norma. 'I want my food to be healthy and fresh,' she says. 'And, of course, delicious.'Don't be surprised then by the organic, top-quality ingredients found in the made-to-order salads, wraps, sandwiches, and entrees at the WiFi-friendly cafe. Must-trys include a simple salad of tender greens, Granny Smith apples, walnuts, and Gorgonzola; light blueberry jam crepes decorated with sweet organic strawberries; arugula salad with pineapple and fennel; roasted corn salad with salmon Champagne vinaigrette; seafood gazpacho; fresh-fruit-only smoothies (apple-banana-strawberry, pineapple-pear); organic mozzarella sticks; arepas (cornmeal pancakes made with farmer's cheese); and French baguette with mozzarella, tomatoes, and pesto.
