The food is displayed in glass cases, with clear prices. A limited selection of freshly cooked food at good prices. There's a tendency towards chilli and vegetarian options. It's all served in generous portions, though soup had run out at 2pm. Good coffee and cakes round things off well.

Good food, nice selection. Rude staff across the board, and food good, but not good enough to make up for rudeness

Hi AJ F, Thanks for taking the time to write your comments, I am really sorry that we were rude across the board. Obviously this stings tremendously and is unacceptable, but I do thank you for letting us know. Any chance you can provide a little more detail? I realize this is a big ask as you have already taken... More

I was pleased to see the lighter option for breakfast. I did not care for the turkey sausage, at all. The bakery was just okay. I ordered the espresso brownie and a scotch-o-roo they were just average. I did like the the waffe that I snuck a bite off.

Cafe 1505 ranks among our favorites for weekend breakfasts and brunches. Very good quality. Responsive and very friendly servers. Very nice menu to please nearly any palate. Always clean. Free parking. Wheelchair accessible. Visit once, you'll want to return.

We appreciated the imaginative menu and the clear effort to use local ingredients whenever possible. The avocado toast with a side order of bacon was deeply satisfying; my partner's vegetable hash was a tad underdone (yams especially) but the eggs, toast, and REAL jam (not high fructose glop!) were delicious. I do think it outrageous that tea costs more than... More

I have been eating lunch here for years and also brunch on the weekends. The food has always been outstanding and I have never been disappointed. They always have some specials of the day and those are usually big hits. Don't miss this if you're in the area
