Nice rustic interior, friendly staff, good seating arrangement and fast service. Place order, sitdown and will be brought to the table. Wide range of coffees, espresso, teas. Had a bacon and shroom sandwich for breakfast. Nice hot sandwich, great flavor mix and panini grill marks. Best breakfast sandwich I had in a long time. 5 starts all the way- thank... More

I've been to this cafe 3 times in the past few week's. The staff have been consistently friendly and the atmosphere is great (they had live music playing last night on First Friday). The London fog's are also the best I've ever had!

We were recommended this little gem for breakfast and we weren't disappointed - great food, generous servings, lovely surroundings, and by far, the best coffee we have come across so far on this trip to the USA.

Came to Lancaster for breakfast on a day trip and stopped into Cafe One Eight and it was amazing! The food was delicious and fresh and the coffee was perfection! Can highly recommend dropping in here for an espresso or bite to eat!

We love to come to cafe one eight after the market on a Saturday. Although they have changed the decor it is still clean and the French toast is great, however most Saturdays they have a young chap at the counter who is very off putting. He treats you like he is doing you a favor by being there. You... More

We had lunch here on a weekday in July 2016. We ordered the "Market Fresh" sandwich, the "Rome" sandwich, and a strawberry salad with chicken added (for an up charge). For beverages, we had an in-house coffee and two smoothies. The sandwiches were delicious, but small for the price (nearly $9 each), especially considering that the fruit served with them... More

My wife and I went in on a Saturday morning. It was a very young crowd and not very couple friendly in regards to seating. My wife and I grabbed two seats at a table that had six seats since there were no other places to sit. We did feel guilty for taking up that table but did not have... More

Came with a friend already knowing we wanted smoothies. Ordered mango strawberry smoothies with whipped cream. Shouldn't have ordered the whipped cream. It was kind of bitter. But the smoothie was good until it got to the bottom where I think the cream mixed in and made every sip bitter. I thought the atmosphere was really good. Good use of... More
