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

318 serves Dogwood coffee! YUM! Breakfast burrito is pretty good. Cozy setting. Right on the bike trail. Why have we waited so long to try it?
