18th Street Cafe

Laid-back cafe in the Omni District.

What we had:

I had the pear turkey melt--smoked turkey, mayo, pear, fresh spinach & muenster on toasted wheat bread. The turkey was a bit salty, but not overwhelmingly so; the mayo was unobtrusive; the pear & spinach were nice; and the muenster, while not melted as much as i would have liked, was a nice creamy counterpoint.

My DH had the roast beef with horseradish--thin-sliced roast beef, provolone, lettuce, tomato, caramelized onions & horseradish sauce on a hoagie. He also enjoyed his sandwich, though it was not what we set out for--he had originally wanted a French Dip.


Open & airy vaguely cupola-shaped space with black, red, sage & tan accents.


Not bad for an order at the counter joint.

Overall impressions:

We would eat here again. A nice non-greasy lunch (though I was wishing for any side but potato chips).
