    Cafe Boulevard: More a Bistro than a Cafe - but Quite good!

    by yooperprof Written Jan 4, 2008
    much in the European tradition

    Cafe Boulevard is a good choice for dining in the Oregon District, close to central Dayton. I came here in a group of eight fairly sophisticated diners who were attending an academic conference in the central city area, and we were all pleased with the service, atmosphere, and menu selections on offer. I had Beef Wellington, and it was excellent. (Not many places have Beef Wellington on the menu any more, so this was a real treat.)

    Central Perc: Charming Brunch/Lunch Cafe

    by yooperprof Updated Jan 4, 2008
    Did I mention that they serve REAL CLOTTED CREAM?

    A short drive from the center of Dayton, Central Perc is actually in suburban Oakwood, but its location in a shopping district makes it feel rather more urban than you might expect. Central Perc is run by an immigrant couple from England who have brought over some of the best aspects of the classic English tea room, and added some delicious soups and sandwiches to make this a very pleasant place for a mid-day repast.

    They serve REAL CLOTTED CREAM with their scones. I can't stress enough how wonderful that is. You can live in the USA for YEARS and never find a cafe or tea-room that serves REAL CLOTTED CREAM. It's a treat!

    coffee on the corner

    The Terra Cotta Cafe is a pleasant little downtown coffee house and cafe, popular with students at the nearby University of Dayton. Good bakery items in the morning. It's just down the street from the Doubletree.

    Tanks: Local bar with good grub and good locals

    by moirholj Written Aug 13, 2003
    Tanks - for your basic burger and awesome fries.

    This is a local bar and grill where you will definately see some Dayton locals. Don't be scared, they don't bite (mainly because they have very few teeth). KIDDING. I love Dayton. Serioulsy though, not only is this a good place for you basic burger and fries, but it is also a decent place to go drink at night.

    Favorite Dish: Chilli Cheese Fries. That's why you go to Tank's in the first place. They also make a great hamburger, but chilli cheese fries are where it's at.

  • Spaghetti Warehouse: More and better food than Olive Garden! Cheap too!

    by RKel Written Dec 4, 2002

    The atmosphere in this restauraunt is sweet. It has a good "downtown" feel to it. There is also a large trolley inside that you can be seated in...kewl.

    Favorite Dish: Well, I forget the name of it...but it is pretty much the same thing as Olive Garden's "Tour Of Italy." I love the chicken parmegana.

    12th Fairway Bar and Grill: A dinner in Dayton Airport

    by Cristian_Uluru Written Oct 27, 2010
    Dayton International Airport

    I spent some hours in Dayton International Airport due to the delay of my flight to Washington D.C. I have dinner in 12th Fairway Bar and Grill. The food was good and the price low! The service was very fast and you can eat watching one of the runway and the airport's activities.

    Favorite Dish: My dinner in the 12th Fairway Bar and Grill was very good and you can taste some American dishes. I tasted a grilled steak with friess and caesar salad. It was very good.

    Have not been downtown to eat...

    by WILDEFLOWER Written Sep 7, 2002

    Have not been downtown to eat for a long time. But the restarant 'Cold Beer and Cheeseburgers' looked inviting! Heard there was an awsome coffee shop late hours in the Oregon District.
