Dayton area cafes offering coffee flights as unique experience for customers

Two Dayton area coffee shops are offering an experience for their customers as they add new flavor combinations to their menus this summer.

Cafe 19 in Englewood and Penny Lane Art Gallery & Cafe in New Carlisle have coffee flights for customers to try a variety of coffees rather than just one cup of joe.

“It was important for us to try and find something for people to come and do as an experience as opposed to just getting your morning coffee,” said Allyson Knight, owner of Penny Lane Art Gallery & Cafe.

“The really big selling point for me on the coffee flights is when you come to us it’s new, might as well try a flight and get a spread, like a sampler, of what we have,” said Cafe 19 co-owner Dillon Allen.

Here is what each cafe is offering:

Cafe 19

Cafe 19, located at 19 W. National Road in Englewood, has over 60 different flavor combinations available to their customers.

Allen said they first offered coffee flights in October 2021 during an event called “Frights and Flights.”

“They were really popular the first couple of days and then they completely fell off,” he said.

However, he explained coffee flights have become popular once again in recent months with 10 to 12 being sold daily.

Cafe 19 offers several different coffee flights including a candy bar flight with Almond Joy, White Reese’s, Carmello and Milky Way inspired lattes. Other flights include a bakery flight, Girl Scout Cookie flight and standard flight. Customers can mix and match flavors to create their own flight. Coffee flights are $9.99 for four different 4-ounce lattes.

The coffee shop is open 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Penny Lane Art Gallery & Cafe

Penny Lane Art Gallery & Cafe, located at 109 S. Main Street in New Carlisle, will soon offer a summer inspired coffee flight featuring the newest flavors of June.

“I try my best to keep putting out new, fun things,” Knight said.

She explained the coffee shop has had several different coffee flights in the past months including a cereal flight with Honey Nut Cheerio, Reese’s Puffs, Lucky Charms and Captain Crunch inspired lattes. She also featured an April flight with Easter-themed lattes. Coffee flights are $8.95 for four different 5-ounce lattes.

Knight said she decided to not do a coffee flight this month as the coffee shop offers a Strawberry Rose Cream Soda and Peach Mango Boba Tea.

The coffee shop is open 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
