Meeting some former neighbors for a reunion of our friendship, we met for linch at Cafe 501. The location was decorated modern style with chairs made from old school desks from high school. 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.

One of our favorite local restaurants with uniformly good food and attentive service. My favorite meal is the small 501 Salad and the Coyote Chicken Sandwich. Both are made with fresh ingredients and very tasty. The pizzas are always delicious, too, and the skewers appetizer often serves as an entree for one of us. They don't take reservations and the...

Read some reviews on price. I don't find it pricey here. If you want to eat in a good restaurant, next to a good clientele, and have fresh tasting foods, even a simple salad...this is what you should expect. So enjoy the creative chicken salads and such and be glad your not eating at soup or salad. The atmosphere here... More

This is an excellent restaurant with solid meals, carefully prepared and the best bread in town (which you can buy to take home). The owners also have another 501 in OKC. However, the real gem is next door at the Boulevard Steak House which they also own. It is by far and away the best in town. However, the price... More

The 501 Salad is great! I also love the Cobb salad. They have a great grilled chicken and bacon pizza also. Desserts are delicious! I've had a red velvet brownie...yummy! And their cookies are delicious. Always top off my lunch with a tropical tea.

Tends to be a little pricey and occasionally the service can be indifferent. The food, however, is always different and appetizing - we'll keep coming back

The food portions here are great and I have never had anything there I did not LOVE. The staff is very helpful and polite. The desserts are as yummy as they look and they beg you to take one when you are in line looking at them. Their granola is to die for!! Get a bag to go. My only... More
