Local Cafe in the heart of downtown Lancaster, Pennsylvania

 About our space


Our Name

Café One Eight is located at 18 West Orange Street, hence the One Eight.

We have also adopted the verse in Acts 1:8

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth”.

Based on our faith in Jesus Christ and a love for what He has called us to, we strive to make Café One Eight a place where everyone feels welcome and receive a touch of the love we have been given.

Kathleen Smucker

COO & Co-owner

Team Mentor & Advisor

I am Kath the creative and heart behind Café One Eight. I’m always dreaming up the next project, new menu item, or some crazy idea for the future. Business was never my plan, all I wanted to do was serve and love people & make good food.

What you find Kath doing: Being a stay at home mom, meeting with my team (they are the real MVP’s), cooking, baking, or just finding new recipes (you mean not everyone does that?)

Favorite Drink: Cappuccino

Favorite Menu Item: Shakshuka


Matt Smucker

CFO & Owner

King of Google, Tech, & Maintenance

Matt is the brains behind all things tech, organizing, and systems at Café One Eight and anything he lays his hands on. Matt is the cautious guy, never jumping into anything to quickly and being sure all the kinks are worked out before diving into anything.

What you can find Matt doing: Fixing & maintaining our equipment, keeping finances 100% in check, researching everything, giving the kids “bull rides”

Favorite Drink: Cold Brew

Favorite Menu Item: Veggie Burger
