The Shops at Norterra – Rachel’s Review


My family spent sometime at the Shops at Norterra this weekend and I wanted to share some of the highlights with all our readers! My husband and son were first time customers at V’s Barbershop and we couldn’t be more pleased with the experience. This was an extra special trip to the barbershop as it was my son’s very first haircut. The team was very welcoming and made this mom feel comfortable…did I mention we were getting family photos the next day? So top notch cuts were a MUST! And that is just what we got. We will definitely be back to V’s for the next father/son cut. Did you know that they give a $1 discount per cut when you come in with a son, father and or grandfather?! They are all about keeping the father/son tradition alive.



Next we headed over to Cafe Zupas for a lunch together. This restaurant started in Salt Lake City and the Norterra location is one of the newest! We attended their grand opening back in October! Fun facts are that you get a free chocolate covered strawberry with any order and the mushroom bisque is their most popular soup! Unfortunately, that was the end of our fun times at the Shops at Norterra for the day as naptime was fast approaching.


The Harkins Theatre at Norterra is certainly the cinema location we frequent the most. In additional to being a prime location it also offers childcare for the cost of a children’s movie ticket. We look forward to seeing Thor there this week!


Other family faves for us are Mellow Mushroom, Pita Jungle, Sauce, Charming Charlies and more. Here is a list of all the places this center boasts.

  1. It is a GREAT shopping center. We love it there too. Especially the movie theater with child care. That is definitely an idea whose time has come!
