Popular Dayton coffee shop sets opening date for new location

Circle November 7, 2019

Ghostlight Coffee, a popular coffee house near downtown Dayton, is gearing up for its second location. The retailer will open the doors for its ‘Midtown” store at 800 S. Patterson Blvd. on Thursday, Nov. 14.

The expansion brings another coffee option to the region, as well as creates new jobs.

“We can’t wait to show Dayton what we’ve been creating in Midtown,” said Ghostlight founder and owner Shane Anderson. “Our team’s been working hard to fine-tune the menu and experience.”

Ghostlight Coffee announced its plans to open the new cafe earlier in 2019. The cafe will feature high-quality, ethically sourced coffee from Cincinnati-based roaster Deeper Roots Coffee, as well as a featured monthly roaster, a full espresso bar and loose-leaf Rishi teas.

Cold drinks such as Ghostlight’s signature ​24hr. Cold Brew Coffee​, iced teas, lemonade and Circle Kombucha will be available on tap.

The cafe will highlight Ghostlight’s in-house bakery, providing breakfast and lunch-focused sandwiches, toasts, tartines, salads and pastries for dine-in or carry-out.

The shop has a mid-century modern inspired look with global design influences. Seating options include casual banquettes and cafe tables, a large communal table, and an intimate conversation area that opens up to a landscaping view of downtown.

In the process of opening the second shop, Ghostlight expanded its staff from 14 to 29 both full-time and part-time employees.

A number of existing team members were promoted to full-time status and will be working between both the Wayne Avenue and Midtown locations, bringing a bit of familiarity to this new Dayton experience.
