Creative, fresh, satisfying

My family and I don't go out to eat very often because we love to cook ourselves and if we are going to spend our hard earned money we want to eat at a place with a pleasant atmosphere and food that is satisfying.

Thank you very much for the kind words. We take great pride in what we do and work hard to improve each day. Your words about our food mean a great deal. I did want to let you know we have a beautiful outdoor patio space that seats about 40 during the season. It is right off our dining room... More

We have gone here several times for breakfast. The food is consistently good, with daily specials. The service has been variable, often having to request coffee or the bill, which for breakfast seems a no brainer.

Thank you for taking the time to give us such good feedback. I appreciate the comments about our food, and I am thankful for pointing out our shortcomings with your service. You are correct, both no brainers. I can assure you we will continue to work hard, get better, and minimize our mistakes. We hope you come again. Be warm!... More

Quaint café located within an upscale shopping strip on a major Mequon intersection. The menu offered healthy food choices with outstanding bakery items. A pet peeve of mine is when I sit for several minutes without even an offer of a glass of water -- and this café served me water just as I sat down -- impressive! I was... More

The food is consistently excellent. We go mainly for late breakfast or lunch so have tried a variety of dishes. Quiche specials are yummy. Plenty to choose from for light appetite or hungry people (like me). Recently had the best Strauss veal dish that was a weekend lunch special. Actually glad it is not on the regular menu because I...

This popular restaurant in Mequon recently started serving dinner. Choices are similar to those on the lunch menu, including quinoa cakes, kale salad, various hummus', and sandwiches. Cauliflower cheese soup was an excellent choice, served with a slice of 1505's great bread. Chicken marsala and quiche also were tasty choices. Portions are not big here, but welcomed by these diners... More

I go to college at the nearby Concordia University and went out to Cafe 1505 with my visiting mother yesterday. We were first impressed by the beautifully thought-out foods on the menu and the great service we received. The atmosphere was cozy and welcoming. Our food was out of this world.
