Good food, several options

Apparently this medium sized restaurant started as a bakery and grew. Baked goods looked very good and fresh, but did not try them, because they also offer a menu of hearty options, with seemingly something for most. I tried their huevos rancheros, which were very good. This is a walk up and... read more

This is by far my favorite restaurant for lunch as I go there at least twice a week. Don't let the long lines dissuade you from going there as it moves fast. You order what you want at the counter and then they deliver it to you. Everything I have eaten there has been delicious.

This is one of the best restaurants in Edmond. They have the best deserts in Oklahoma. Always fresh and yummy. I LOVE the chicken breast sandwich on their great grain bread. Which is also one the best bread I ever eaten.

Well presented with excellent server. We did the Sunday brunch. We were pleased with everything except the sun was fierce coming through the window and no shades available. The tab was a bit over the top for berry pancakes. The sausage was excellent. My wife was very pleased until she saw the bill. We had lunch there the week before... More

Cafe 501 is my favorite place to eat lunch ---- ever! I go there for my birthday every year for sure and any other time I can talk someone into going with me! The food is very fresh and just a bit different. For example, the 501 Salad has pumpkin seeds in it. It is so yummy and just a... More

Here's a nice place to dine with unique twists and combinations in the entrees. The food is delicious and the presentation is lovely. The waitstaff was attentive and knowledgeable. We find the prices are more suited to a special night out.

Whenever I have out of town guests from east coast, this is always where I take them. Great food and atmosphere and price. Also a standard of mine to meet for lunch or Sunday Brunch. You can't go wrong and you can buy something to go in their bakery! Couples, family, friends, business...equally will enjoy this location, made better by... More

My husband and I stopped by this popular Edmond restaurant for an impromptu dinner on a Friday evening. We had no wait, which was surprising and got one of the few tables available. We started with glass of wine (good selections) and their fresh bread and dipping sauce, which included olive oil, and garlic clove. Although we love and tend... More

The cafe was nice. The food was good. The coyote chicken seems to be the most popular "items" on the menu. I felt it was a little bland. The pasta served with it was bland too. I ordered the salted caramel butter bar and it was good. I don't think I would go out of my to eat there again.

Neat little cafe, very unique atmosphere, great service and food. I had the black bean chili and was very pleased with the taste. I would eat there again for sure.
