About Cafe 501 - Classen Curve
Cafe 501, a long-time favorite of Edmond epicureans, brings its colorful, European-inspired cuisine to the Classen Curve. From its humble beginnings as a "little lunch spot" in the heart of historic Edmond, 501 has poised itself as one of central Oklahoma’s most loved eateries. A second location, at 5825 NW Grand Blvd., features the original’s eclectic "French-Californian" approach to dining with a harmonious balance between a hand-crafted menu and a sophisticated yet casual atmosphere that is true to Oklahoma.
Cafe 501 has become synonymous with a discriminating taste in good wine and great foods. From rustic stone oven pizzas, to fresh, uniquely designed salads and delicious specialty sandwiches on house-made artisan breads, Cafe 501 offers tastes delectable enough for even the most discerning diners. When evening arrives, Cafe 501 changes from a buzzing lunch spot to a romantic bistro with soft lighting, an attentive full-service staff, and an expanded dinner menu.

Great Brunch! We had two types of Eggs Benedict and always prefer on the delicious biscuits vs a regular English Muffin. The others in our group ordered the Biscuits and Gravy. Modern Restaurant and nice atmosphere!

I love the Café 501 in Edmond but this one was just now very good. My favorite item is the Kentucky Hot Brown. I got this item at the Classen location and was completely different and not very good. Our waitress never even told us her name and acted like we were an inconvenience the entire time. When I asked for mimosas she rolled her eyes at me before asking for my id. I will stick to going to the Edmond 501 for sure.

I dine at Cafe 501-Classen Curve frequently and have never had a bad meal and their staff is a delight! Their cocktails and wine list are very good. I definitely recommend a reservation for Sunday brunch. I highly suggest the Huevos rancheros-only at brunch on Sunday.

I had a reservation but we still had to wait 25 minutes to get a table for 2 at 7:15 .
I ordered pizza but the waitress came back to tell me they were totally out of all pizzas.
So I ordered fish tacos .
Manager came back to tell me they were out of that.
I finally ordered a coyote sandwich since it was taking so long to get a meal.
Most of the people were gone when we were eating.
They gave me a free piece of cake.
Fortunately this is not typical for Cafe 501.
It is usually one of my favorites...but not that night.

Fish and chips were excellent. No oily fried taste. Burger was perfectly cooked to order. Service was outstanding. Efficient but not intrusive. Only item imperfect was the bread pudding which had too much topping for personal taste. It doesn't mention ice cream on the description of the bread pudding, and it was overkill.

While it was 11:00 a.m. the day after July 4th and busy, I feel they should have been prepared for such a crowd. The food was okay, nothing fantastic. Dessert was overpriced... I had the chocolate mousse cake and it tasted like a refrigerated cake would be expected to taste. It took quite a while for our food to come out... quite a while to get a dessert menu... and quite a while for us to get our dessert. Unless you're really into that earthy kind of meal, this is not for you. (Our nephew had a chocolate chip cookie with ice cream... he took us to the side and told us, "That cookie tastes like crap." He's seven years old...)
Nothing really special about the whole place.
The hostess told us that the table we re ...
The hostess told us that the table we reserved had been given away even though we were right on time, and that she could seat us next to the door. When I said that would not work, she quickly agreed and found us a nice booth normally reserved for larger parties. She was also helpful in selecting a different wine for us when the one we ordered was out of stock. So...what could have been a bad experience was quickly turned into a good one thanks to her understanding and ability to adjust.

I don't mind the fact that you have to make lunch reservations but there was no one there to greet us and we had to flag down a waitress to be seated. A little confusing. Our waitress was efficient but not overly friendly. My friend and I split the coyote crunch wrap (one of my faves) because it is normally huge but I could have easily eaten the whole sandwich. Luckily we also ordered the tomato soup which is always delicious. It was my birthday so we split the brownie dessert but only after the waitress asked vaguely if we wanted cake or pie and then asked if we wanted to see a menu! Service and food were good but our experience was just a little off from the usual 5 stars!

This meal was very disappointing. Café 501 was having a special "gourmet dinner" that night, so the menu was very limited. However, there were things that sounded good on the menu. I got chicken fried steak and my business associate got meatloaf. The chicken fried steak was greasy and tasteless. The meatloaf was lackluster at best. It was if they were focusing all attention on the main dining room, and no concern for quality for their walk in guests.
I will not be back. Historically, this has been a good restaurant, but this experience was significantly bad to cause me to not return.
