Bellyfire caters to businesses, large-scale events, and busy families that don't have time to prepare homemade meals during the week. Bellyfire’s gourmand gang slaves over hot stoves to churn out culinary creations such as grilled salmon on bowtie pasta with a strawberry, red onion, and romaine salad; and sweet-and-sour pot roast with root vegetables and green-bean-tomato salad. Each meal consists of a palate-prepping salad and a hearty entree with two sides. In order to eliminate the drudgery of dish cleaning, all dinners come in disposable containers, which can be thrown out or fashioned into miniature toboggans for toy-poodle dogsled teams. Bellyfire can deliver meals hot and ready for immediate feasting or cold for storing and reheating.
Situated amid the bustle of Dayton’s Bike Hub, Silver Fern Cafe offers both cyclists and those on foot a respite with its hot and cold concessions, drinks, and snacks.

Slate-colored walls and exposed pipes lend an industrial air to the elegant red curtains and wooden wine racks of Serendipity Bistro. In fact, the curated wine list is one of the bistro's specialties, next to the flatbread pizzas and paninis made from scratch and paired with everything from turkey and apple chutney to shrimp artichoke pesto. Some evenings, guests can also share pitchers of sangria, a sweetened wine beverage the Spanish invented to lull pet tigers into their afternoon siestas.
At The Butter Cafe, every dish that chefs create maintains their commitment to sustainable cooking and eating, from the fluffy, golden pancakes topped with organic sweet-cream butter to the omelets made with locally sourced, free-range eggs. This dedication to sustainability extends to ensure respect for animals and workers. Along with their all-day breakfast, which includes gluten-free and vegan options, lunch and dinner caters to meat lovers and vegans alike with hearty meatloaf served along with vegan hot dogs and spaghetti.
With more than 20 frozen-yogurt flavors, upward of 50 toppings, and the freedom to combine them in any combination, the variety of treats that Bad Frog Frozen Yogurt's customers can devise is virtually infinite. Customers grab a cup and head to the treat dispensers for yogurt, all of which carry the live-culture seal. Though the flavors may change frequently, the shop always offers nonfat, low-fat, and no-sugar-added options to let health-minded customers indulge without guilt and to let frat boys save room on rowdy frozen-yogurt crawls. Once flavors are selected, visitors sidle up to the toppings bar to customize their treat with strawberries, Oreos, or morsels of mochi.
