I had a Brie sandwich and it was delicious. I ended with coconut cake. Yummy. Nice cozy, quick dinner before catching a movie.

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

When I drive to Milwaukee or Chicago, I need a break and usually stop in Mequon at Panera, but my son noticed Cafe 1505 across the street and thought we should try it out. Wow, my new place to stop....it has a sit down restaurant, but also deli counter with many salads and sandwiches to go. I did ask to... 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. I had the nicoise trout salad and my mother... More

Unless you're a local, this place would be difficult to find as it is tucked away in a group of shops set back from the street. This is unfortunate because the 1505 has so much to offer. Great service, quality food, and a fun menu. The restaurant has been remodeled and expanded to be more comfortable and efficient. Use your... More

...but I think others are correct in that food is very bland. Ingredients are quality, that is true - fresh and beautifully presented. We ordered the Oriental Chicken Salad and Sampler Plate (3 salads). The salads were lovely to look at but again, flat and rather tasteless. I know restaurants that tout fresh food and more gormet-oriented menu items are... More

Here for dinner. Baba Ganoush appetizer was completely flavorless, lacking any seasoning at all, even salt. The salmon dinner with Avocado "pesto" was really salmon topped with guacamole, kind of odd... The salmon was over cooked (3 of us had it). The wild rice and broccoli Rabe that accompanied it were pretty good. One person had the hangar steak, and... More

I live in Mequon and am fortunate to visit Cafe 1505 often. They recently added wine to their offerings along with an expansion of their deli in an additional room across the hall with added seating. Even though my girls grew up here they still always want to go there for lunch or Sunday brunch. Never a bad meal and... More
