Like to stop in for a bite with a friend while in the Excelsior area. Good quality food provided by friendly staff in a quaint little cafe.

This is a small, intimate restaurant with foodie fare. The turkey, apple, brie, honey-pecan butter, whole wheat panini is delicious. ($11) Enjoy the deck in warm weather, which overlooks the bike train and Water Street. Great for people watching.

We have been going to 318 for years. A very limited menu due to the small kitchen but we have never been disappointed in a meal. If you like breakfast, they have outstanding oatmeal. Really! They also have a home made coffee cake/streusel that we...More
