501 is our go-to place for great food, atmosphere, and outstanding service. We love supporting local businesses and appreciate the Holloways and their take on various cuisine. A must-have starter is the Truffle Fries or if doing brunch the Loaded Potatoes.
The truffle flavor is amazing. Too many favorite entrees to suggest, but know you can't go wrong no matter what you choose. The pastry case can not be skipped. Cornflake cookies and Ricotta Cheese Cookies are a favorite but the Strawberry cake keeps me coming back! Never fails we see people we know and we always leave feeling satisfied.

Under normal circumstances being seated near the door wouldn’t have been an issue, however, with the frigid temperatures it was cold.

Lots of changes to the menu and missing the brunch items like the stuffed French toast. Bring back those things that made them so unique.

The holiday drinks were tasty, however my food didn't really impress. It wasn't bad, but it was nothing special either. I think if I go back I'll stick to a less expensive dish since the salmon wasn't all that worth it.

This was one of the best meals that our family has enjoyed and a very long time. Three of the four of us got dishes that are new one being the ricotta pancake, another was Nashville hot and spicy, then we also had a steak and eggs meal. The pancakes and the Nashville sandwich were absolutely one of the best meals we’ve ever had. Those pancakes were amazing. The entire meal was enjoyable
what a treat

Thanksgiving and Covid kept the place pretty empty, so it was pretty quiet and we got plenty of attention from our server, she was great. We will return soon.

Covid’s fall drink menu is terrible few choices, understandably we all have to cut corners and not wanting to stock any more than necessary, the menu lacks variety and is far too heavy.

501 needs to do something about the sound level in the restaurant. The booths are somewhat comfortable but the tables and chairs, forget it, totally uncomfortable. My husband never wants to go based on seating alone which is sad because I like the food and the wine tasting and events are always fabulous

Made a somewhat last minute Friday reservation. Too cold to dine outside. Seated promptly. Very good service.

Food is normally superb. I had the chicken parmigiana which was good but not outstanding. Rest of our party had the fried chicken or meatloaf which was excellent.

Desserts and drinks were outstanding. We’ll be back!

I haven't been to Café 501 in Edmond for a while. The food was really good and presentation good.
Staff was good, but not extraordinary as in the past. they have removed some of the tables in the first room and it looks and feels better. Nice to have an outside dining option.

I really enjoy the menu at 501 and since they’ve adapted to patio seating I was happy to go there again. The waiter was great and the only thing I disliked about the food was I had asked for a substitution that they didn’t fulfill and I didn’t realize until I’d left😂. Overall 4 1/2 stars maybe 4 3/4.

Delicious brunch and delightful service. Honestly, it's worth the trip just for the coffee. The special was the avocado toast and poached egg. A perfect not-to-heavy, not-too-light brunch! We will definitely put Cafe 501 on our return list.

Had a quick brunch. Service was good and food was out quickly. The egg scrambler dish we ordered was outstanding. The ricotta pancakes not as good. Very dry and no extra syrup came with them. A few berries on top. Overall a nice experience. Wish they had a few more lunch type menu items on the brunch menu. They were also out of quiche that morning and that was disappointing.
