The 318 Café is 100% locally owned and independent.
We support the community of Excelsior.

We support many other local businesses in day-to-day operations including tons of MN Breweries, Ames Farm Honey, Stickney Hill Farms, Ridgeroll Farms, TeaSource, Grey Duck Chai, Dogwood Coffee, La Quercia Farms, Excelsior Farmers Market vendors and many more.

The 318 Cafe awaits your next visit.
We’re in a 100+ year-old building once used as a lumber mill, a naturally warm environment full of character, wood beams and history. Whether it’s for a quick latte, a glass of wine and a cheese plate, a MN craft beer or a show, we’ve got the cozy neighborhood vibe you crave. With a fireplace for cold winter days, a little patio for summer sun, and an ample parking lot, the 318 Café crew happily welcomes you!
