|I probably don't have to say anything here, do I? YUM! You may not figure out that the cup holds vanilla yogurt and honey. Delish!|
A young couple has taken a bold step.
They have opened a cafe in the city of Lancaster.
Running a cafe is not an easy thing
nor is it guaranteed success.
word of mouth is working well
in this case because this place is sweet.
They call it
Cafe One Eight.
The home page of their website
Christ. Compassion. Coffee.
The name is taken from both the address
at 18 W. Orange Street
We discovered Cafe One Eight when our friends at
Fab Fashion just around the corner recommended it
to Georgia and I one day when we were out to market
and made a candle delivery to the shop.
We enjoyed our visit so much that I knew I had
to introduce Chelsea to Cafe One Eight.
She LOVES it and so wishes we had something
like it closer to home.
Matt and Kathleen....
I'm hinting here!
I'm sure there is a cute little spot
that would be just perfect somewhere
It Could be
Cafe One Nine or something....
Then it wasn't too long until one of
Chelsea's former co-workers was hired to
work at Cafe One Eight.
Then he was singing for First Friday at the cafe.
We were out and about that night because of the van.
You may have read this post about the early part
of that evening.
But even though Chelsea wasn't feeling all that well
she agreed that she really did want to stop by
and hear Sheldon sing.
We all know Sheldon and his girlfriend from
the theatre too so we were very happy to see
him and hear his talent at work.
While the morning that I took these photos was relatively quiet
in Cafe One Eight, I can tell you that First Friday was not.
Wow. I was a bit concerned for the antique floors.
It was so full.
What a sense of community.
I was impressed to see many of my
former co-op students ...
of course they are quite grown up now.
How does this happen?
We also ran into a friend from our
She got an earful about the events from
earlier in the evening.
Donna, it was so neat to be able
to testify to God's goodness.
The music was fantastic.
Sheldon and his friends did a great job.
If you love cafes
this is one you need to put on your
list to visit while in Lancaster County.
And then pop around the corner on Market Street
and visit our friends
at Fab Fashion.
It is just the perfect way to enjoy Lancaster City.
Of course if you happen to hit Market Day
you'll have to check out Central Market just a few steps away
from Fab Fashion.
