The food here is very good! The service has always been great. The Nashville hot honey chicken sandwich is one the best dishes I’ve ever had in my life. I recommend going for brunch on Sunday’s if you can!

I ordered the coyote chicken wrap, and husband ordered the 501 burger. My wrap was ok, but rather bland for the described ingredients and the chicken chunks were too large for one bite, making it a bit challenging to eat. The hamburger was a concoction mess, and cooked medium rare, not medium well. The potatoes were not as good as they looked.
We have always enjoyed 501, so this was disappointing. I won’t write them off, but may be a while before we return.

I met my friend for Sunday brunch and it was very good. Only suggestions, don't over toast the breD as it makes it very hard to cut with knife provided on Acocado toast

This is our first visit to the Edmond Cafe 501. Previously we've been to the Classen Curve location. Slightly different menu items there. The original in Edmond offers excellent value. Ambience lacks, patrons are packed in on cheap furnishings. Service is very good. Recommended items: Blackened shrimp and grits, nice heat level. And the Santa Fe chicken was outstanding. Portions are appropriate for the price.

Lots of changes to their menu since our last visit -- everyone in our party was pleased with choices and results. They were short-staffed but everyone worked to make up for it and the result was good.

Food was good, service was excellent. We were seated in the back dining room and it was crowded and loud. There were two large groups in there and it was hard to have a conversation with the noise level.

We love Cafe 501! Usually do lunch there but thought we'd go early for dinner at 6:15. 5 minutes earlier & we would have scored a booth instead of the tables in the back room. My husband got the salmon entree & although it said it had cabbage we are pretty sure that was kale! It was superb & my cobb salad was very good too. We will be back for sure!

Cafe 501 has always been a favorite spot of ours, but we haven't been out to eat much lately. We are now fully vaccinated, and we were ready for a nice night out! (The staff was well masked, and all patrons wore masks coming and going.) Cafe 501 did not disappoint! The spinach and artichoke dip was a yummy starter. Our son thought the pepperoni pizza was superb, and my husband and I both enjoyed the Tuscan Chicken. The dish was creatively served in a stacked sort of way, and it was so delicious! Our server Trinity was a delight. We encourage everyone to stop by Cafe 501 soon!
