Sometimes, people assume they’ve got two meal options: healthy or delicious. But these eateries in the Dayton area prove that you can have both.
For good measure, we also include a new meal delivery service that just hit the Dayton area.
A Cleveland-based startup service that delivers organic, plant-based meals expanded its delivery area this week to all of southwest Ohio and other parts of the state.
Customers choose a weekly plan that can be tailored to an individual, a couple or a family. Customers can then choose dishes from a rotating menu each week, and can skip a week or cancel anytime. Meals are delivered via UPS or FedEx in an insulated box with ice packs.
Menu items include Mediterranean Oasis Bowl with Baked Falafel and Dill Tahini, 8-Spice Cashew Vegetable Soup, and Almond Ginger Quinoa Bowl, among others.

1120 Brown St., Dayton
The founders of the Butter Café are gearing up to launch a new venture next door to their breakfast-and-lunch spot on Brown Street near the University of Dayton.
The new business will serve cold-pressed juices and smoothies, a variety of toasts, and perhaps a selection of cold sandwiches.

Synergy’s owners are “VERY passionate about changing the the way people eat by offering healthy and nutritionally balanced food that tastes great,” said Katie Maloney, a spokeswoman for Synergy at The Greene. The shop offers smoothie bowls, which Maloney said will likely be “the key attraction from our menu, because they are beautiful, taste great, and are healthy.”
“We have unique ingredients for our smoothie bowls like chia seeds, goji berries, hemp granola and coconut flakes, to name a few. We also offer regular smoothies. All smoothies are made from a unique blend of oat, almond, soy milk and kefir.”
Opening in the fall (projected)
On Wilmington Pike, at The Cornerstone of Centerville
It’s the Chipotle of healthy and quick foods. A fast-casual restaurant offering “clean-eating” options is set to open in Centerville.
Menu includes: create-your-own grain and vegetable bowls, soups, grass-fed chicken and steak, and organic tofu. Customers can create their own “green bowl,” with options like Sriracha ginger roasted tofu, kale caesar chicken, spicy ginger steak, Mediterranean, and chicken cobb.
