    Place wasn’t very busy when we arrived, & we had a Easter Sunday reservation. Server was on top of things and recited some of their drink & menu specials. Food came out n time and it was very aesthetically pleasing . Food was Cooked properly and although the slo-cooked pulled pork was not hot; and there were onions in the garnish on top. I can’t eat onions and would have liked to know they were in it prior to ordering. Servers were very good at working as a team and helping move service along. Drinks were served quickly before our main order and served in appropriate glassware. Refills wer proactively asked about. My only complaint would be that the meals really had no “ flavors”. The herb potatoes tasted like there were no herbs, the slo cooked pork was cooked so long the flavor left. The honey baked ham was too thinly cut for the breakfast meal; so not much flavor. The biscuit was a “ biscuit” no additional flavor and it obviously had been sitting around for awhile. The sausage gravy had tidbits of sausage and no flavor in the “ gravy” ; needed pepper for sure. Flavor of food is definitely lacks luster, service was very good, prices and ambiance was good. NOTE: do a major search er haul on both bathrooms and put a partial door to that area. Women’s room needs two stalls- get rid of the couch. Men’s room needs to remove the mirror so n front of the stall.

    Perfection. Love this place so much. Try the Green Bowl. It is amaaazing. Their tea is so good and their lemon vinaigrette dressing is delicious. So much to love about this cozy gem. Their black bean chili is excellent moreso at dinner bc seasonings have all had time to set in. The staff are all friendly and sweet and so accommodating. Angela Lupe and Jackie are wonderful staples, but the entire staff is special and they all do a great job.

    This is normally a lunch place. Went in a Wednesday evening and was amazed how few people were there. I guess other people also think of it as lunch place. In the evening they do wait on you at your table. Food was just as good as always and service also great. Had the Mediterranean bowl and ate every bite.

    Cafe 501 is a gem for Sunday brunch! They take average brunch items and magnify them into delicious and creative entrees. The service is amazing!

    The ideas behind the menu are pretty good, but the execution just isn’t there. My wonderful wife got the salmon with garlic fried rice. The salmon was average, but the garlic fried rice was a mess. Mushy and tasted nothing more than mushy soy sauce. The service was fantastic - they went above and beyond, so that helps. The mashed potatoes on my dish has a brown color. Tasted okay, nothing special, but the texture was weird. The pastries, which is why we keep coming back, are really, really good.

    We have been eating at 501 1-3 times a month for the last 6ish months. This dining experience was meh at best. The last couple of times food quality is inconsistent and not awesome this time. It will be a bit before we go back.

    Your tables are too close together. In the back room you’re trying to squeeze more tables than will comfortably fit resulting in customers having difficulty getting around as well as your staff having the same problem. You are a high priced restaurant and customers should not have to sit on top of each other considering what we pay.

    We have eaten at 501 many times. Sunday, August 20th was unusual. The English muffin was so hard and dry and same way with the avocado toast, the sourdough bread on bottom was so hard and dry I could not cut it with a table knife. there were 2 cherry tomatoes on it and that was it. The waitress did not know what I meant when I ordered a vanilla Latte with half the vanilla and instead of asking what I meant she ordered it as a regular vanilla latte which is way too sweet for me so I sent it back and she said oh I didn't know what you meant when you ordered that. OK, why didn't you ask?? Anyway, I'm hoping it was just an "OFF" day.
