Syrup Set for Seconds

Norman’s boutique breakfast bar coming to Uptown OKC


Popular breakfast spot Syrup is set to open a second location in Uptown 23rd at the end of August.

The five-year-old business has taken over the former La Catrina Mexican restaurant building, originally built as a Captain D’s in the 1980s, at 1501 NW 23rd.

Syrup’s General Manager Malcolm Wankel said the second site will have the added bonus of a patio and a liquor license, raising the delicious possibility of cocktails with brunch.

“We’ve been ready to open a new location for a while, but we found the right people and the right location, and we’re now ready to open at the end of August,” he adds.


Their second site will offer the same menu options as the primary location at 123 E Main in Norman, which specializes in waffles and pancakes as well as house favorites “Oklahoma breakfast” Nompton and Stuffed Frittata.

The restaurant, which draws a steady stream of regulars in Norman, operates as a nonprofit, helping its owners from Cape Town in South Africa build an orphanage, dig clean water wells and support missionaries.
