501 is one of our favorite luncheon stops. When our kids come to town from St. Louis, our daughter-in-law specifically likes to go there. It has an excellent and diverse menu with ample servings.

I love the veggie wrap... but everything on the menu sounds delicious. Usually I'm too full at the end of the meal for dessert but their case is very tempting as you order. You'll want one of everything. :)

I have met friends for Saturday lunch at Cafe 501 once a month for years. I've also had dinner there a number of times. It has always been good fresh food with good service. The Sunday brunch is also a treat. Bakery items are outstanding as well. You order at the counter, then the food is brought to your table.... More

Had a pleasant dinner while the in laws were in town. My mother in law is very picky so when she said the meatloaf was "very good" we know it was a winner.

Great food, very nicely decorated, good wait staff. We enjoy a good place for Sunday brunch and this place doesn't disappoint. Champagne and Bloody Mary's were excellent. Go there!!!!

The menu was deli-style sanswiches served with pasta salad. Service was by ordering at the counter, then take a numbered marker to your table for delivery when... More

Cafe 501 has been the favorite Saturday breakfast spot with my friends for many years. The food is always delicious, and the bakery items are to die for. The restaurant is good for lunch too--very interesting salads and wraps and a wide range of sandwiches. Well worth the cost, although watch building your own omelette. You may get a shock!... More

The food is fantastic but the lunch crowd is loud. You have to order at the counter but they do bring the food to your table. It is not a fast lunch so go when you have plenty of time.
