Great place for quality food and their drinks are always good too!

We like to eat lunch here as there's usually a great selection to suit most every taste. They also offer mixed drinks to go with the season and they're always delicious!

The food here is very good, but it's on the pricy side. The setting is nice, but the noise level is pretty high.

We get together with our daughter and her family periodically and order out to save cooking and clean-up time. Our family has a varied taste in food and Café 501 fits our needs perfectly. The menu provides ample choices for our tastes and we have never had a bad experience with the food.

Took a chance on the Trip Advisor rating and not disappointed! Don't miss the saracha shrimp and sweet potato fries, best tomato basil soup ever! Entrees were fantastic! Service was superb. Highly recommend this restaurant!

This is always our go-to lunch place with the girls. Both of the Edmond and OKC restaurants are nice but the OKC location is newer and also closer to great shopping. They both have a different menu for dinner. Everything I've ordered is excellent! You can't go wrong at lunch or dinner!

I travel through Edmond from time to time on my way to visit family in Nebraska. On my first trip Cafe 501 was recommended & I'm so glad I took the advice. I've eaten various dishes & all have been super DELISH. Do yourself a favor & dine at Cafe 501. Chrissy - Bastrop, Tx

My girlfriends and I have made this our birthday/girls time out place to eat for lunch. The food is amazing! I have tried many things but seem to always revert back to my favorites - pear salad and tomato basil soup. I compare everyone's soup to theirs and no one beats it! The tropical tea is refreshing. It gets busy... More

A varied menu and good neighborhood ambiance are two of the things that make this place good for lunch or dinner.
