Butter Cafe at 1106 Brown St. in Dayton is offering a special (and delicious) menu for the rest of January that makes it easy for those on a diet to feel comfortable eating out without counting calories. 

“I think sometimes people in January think that they can’t eat out because it’s all bad,” said Amy Beaver, the co-founder of Butter Cafe. “Like, where are we going to go? We can’t go out to eat because we’re on diets.”

The January menu, which could run until the end of the first week of February, features an assortment of plant-based vegan cuisine featuring an assortment of superfoods. 

Kendall Reves, Butter Cafe’s general manager and chef, is the mastermind behind this healthy creation.
