Cafe 501 has been around for years and I've eaten here dozens of times. There is not a bad thing on the menu and their desserts are to live for. I would highly recommend for lunch and brunch.

My family went here for lunch. The food was great and staff was very friendly and helpful. The place was an interesting place for a café. I never heard of a café with a revolving door. It was a little pricey. Overall, not too bad to have lunch there.

We've had numerous "expansion" restaurants from Oklahoma City here in Edmond. Many seem second rate. Cafe 501 is original to Edmond and has been consistent over the years. Not the cheapest casual dining around but generally good food with variety in their not-too-expansive menu. They can do what they offer. Service was excellent, food tasty. They only have bottle beer... More

We went to Cafe 501 to celebrate our wedding anniversary because we were given a gift card. W not only was the food delicious and our cocktails spot on, our server was perfectly attentive without being obtrusive on our evening. The restaurant was quiet, clean, and relaxed. We will definitely be back!

Great service and good food. The host was rude and a tad bit obnoxious though. I'm giving it 3 stars because specifically out of the 4 meals we ordered mine was by far the worst. I get that it's brunch food but when I would have had better food at home from a cereal box it's not worth it. I... More

Atypical visit to Cafe 501 in Edmond. We usually have good experiences here but tonight was regrettable. Our server was training and forgot multiple things during course of meal (sweetener, dessert, a drink) and was missing in action most of the time. There were an abundance of employees milling around, I think as many employees as customers, and it was... More

This place takes reservations - so let that be a sign! Guests are served sliced fresh baked white bread and a garlic/oil dipping sauce. Divine! We stopped in for early dinner on a Friday and it was already full. We leaned on our waiter to recommend something not too spicy. We went with a chicken dish that included corn/avocado salsa,...

Cafe 501 provides a variety of delicious appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts to delight the taste buds. The atmosphere is elegantly casual and can meet the needs of friends, couples, families, business associates or any group searching for a place to eat. The nice waiter we had was attentive and easily made a side substitute for me. The food was... More
