Norma’s Café and seafood story began in 2012 when Chris Burns stumbled across the store, a quiet, hidden gem away spot perched in between the Mooloolah River and the Ocean surfside beach of Buddina. Chris and his family had just returned to Australia after running cafes in the UK and we’re looking for their next chapter in their lives.
Chris saw the potential of the location along with its beauty, being a short stroll to the ocean beach of Buddina which is a popular surf beach, and the banks of the Mooloolah River which are situated on Harbour Parade and the relaxing La Balsa Park, which is a family favourite.
The name Norma’s originated from the original owners (1972) who still live in the upstairs apartment in the complex. Chris saw this opportunity to the perfect spot, to provide good old-fashioned food at a reasonable price for our customers. Being community-oriented we offer a mixture of food to satisfy our customers. All our produce is sourced locally, supporting our farmers and business. We believe that the Sunshine Coast is a special place, where you can come and relax.
