Consistently my favorite Sunday brunch spot, elegant cafe diner with home like atmosphere, the service and food are always good. I have only ventured in for dinner one time and while it was just fine the brunch is top notch on another level.... Biscuit Debris.

Cafe 501 is a great place to eat for lunch or dinner. However, if you get a chance to take your family there for Sunday Brunch, you absolutely won't be disappointed. From savory options to decadent delights, I personally have not had a bad dish...More

Good selection of soups, salads, sandwiches and wraps, as well as a bakery case. Order out the counter and take a number for your table. Real plates and silverware, plastic drinking cups and a self-serve fountain. Nice atmosphere. Chairs are upcycled school desks with room...More

Enjoyed a wonderful meal with some special friends. The atmosphere was just what we wanted. Quiet, so we could talk, but not so stuffy that we couldn't laugh out loud at times. Food met our expectations and it was a good value for the price.

Disappointing! I had great expectations since lunch at 501 is very good, but unfortunately the service for Sunday Brunch was bad. Not the waitresses fault, but once seated ( we had booked) and ordered, we then waited for 1.5 hrs for our food to arrive....More

We love cafe 501. Always perfect for lunch or a light dinner. The chicken portobello salad is delish and Sunday brunch items are terrific. My husband had a unique and terrific Bloody Mary. The ricotta cookies are wonderful. Always a good choice!

Cafe 501 used to be one of our favorite restaurants. However, they seem to be changing their recipes and decreasing their quality. Sounds like an operating expense issue. I’d rather see the food return to its original quality and costs increase, rather than to watch...More
