When was the last time you enjoyed lunch in a stately, Victorian mansion?

Chances are you haven't yet – but you can now. Head downtown for a tasty lunch in a gorgeous, historic atmosphere reminiscent of years past.

The Dayton Woman’s Club was founded in 1916, and celebrated their 100th anniversary in 2016. It is open to the public for lunch Monday through Friday.

THE ATMOSPHERE
The dining room looks straight out of a Victorian period film, down to the elaborate antique china and silver place settings. In fact, the restrooms, hallways, sitting rooms and alcoves all look exactly as you can imagine they would have 100 years ago.

THE FOOD
The menu offers plenty of sandwiches, salads, soups, desserts and more that you're accustomed to seeing at lunch spots all over downtown.

But there are also treats from a bygone era, such as tomato aspic (a gelatin dish) and Rike's Department Store Sloppy Joe. They even serve beer and wine if you don't have to head back to work after lunch. And don't worry about the tip – all dine-in checks have tax and gratuity included automatically.

PARKING
Parking for lunch is on the side of the building, and free wi-fi is available for members and guests alike.

They always appreciate a call ahead to know you're coming for lunch, although reservations are not required. If you're looking for a quiet spot for lunch downtown, you should definitely try the Dayton Woman's Club -- and help them celebrate more than a century in Dayton.
