Nice Bistro

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

Always fresh, always a treat to the taste-buds! They take an amazing amount of care to make sure everything is just so, from atmosphere to presentation. Lunch is always good, dinner is a treat.

This is the quintessential spot for Edmond dining. They have a wide menu with something for everyone. I love the small town charm, and make sure you save room for dessert. If I'm here for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, I always leave happy and full.

I have been going to 501 since they opened 20+ years ago. I have never had a bad meal there - the food is always great! My only problem is what to order since I love it all.

Delicious! Went there back to back days! Had 2 different items, and both were very good! The Coyote Chicken Salad is simply delicious! My friend had the tacos. Oh my! Those were fabulous too! The next day, I had the gluten free pizza. While it was tasty, the "up-charge" is simply ridiculous and I wouldn't get the pizza again for... More

I felt like their food overall was lacking flavor. For the price you pay it sure seems flavorless. I personally wouldn't go back.

The best cafe/deli in Edmond for lunch. Great dinner also. It's gourmet food in a great atmosphere. The price scares some away but worth every penny and bite. Weekend Brunch is the bomb but reservations are recommended as there will be a wait. My only issue with 501 is the ordering line next to a single row of tables. If... More

I love 501. I should go there more actually. They have a spectacular lunch. The style is that you go to the counter, order, then they bring food to you. The quality is excellent. Outstanding desserts as well. I really like the atmosphere -- it is friendly and warm. An excellent choice for lunch in Edmond.

I live in the neighborhood across the street from Cafe 501 and we always pickup to go orders since it's so convenient to our house.

Great salads and sandwiches. A little pricey but you can easily share or have leftovers! Portions are big. Very tasty bakery items too. The cafe 501 salad is the best! Try their wraps too!
