Fantastic sandwiches.

Small place, wait in line (sometimes very long) to order then good luck find a place to sit. Sandwich/salad/ wrap selection at lunch is great. Breads are delicious and fresh. Meals are expensive $11 avg for sandwich but quality of food is worth it.

This is another local restaurant, not too large so seems homey. Their food is good, and if you live in Edmond you will always run into several people you know. Sandwiches, salads, and then at night some fancier items, good desserts too.

My friends and I always find something when we meet for linch. The salads are delicious and the sandwiches are too. We have never been disappointed.

The restaurant is not big, but tastefully decorated. The booths have very comfortable couches, which is a plus. Brunch food is delicious and nicely-presented. Strongly recommend Garden Vegetable Omelet and Chicken & Waffle. The price is very reasonable considering the quality and quantity you get.

My wife and I really like the salads here. The 501 salad is unique and extremely good. But the Cobb is my favorite. Everything just goes together to make a very tasty salad that can easily be shared with another person. If you add it and share the California Club, it makes a really tasty meal. Of course you have... More

The weekend is made for brunch. If you are looking for a brunch spot in Edmond, I highly recommend Cafe 501, you will not be disappointed. You might have to wait, but trust me--it's worth it. They have a great menu and weekly specials. I am a sucker for light and fluffy pancakes.

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 order place with a number given and they... 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.
