Dayton's Neighborhood Coffeehouse & Bakery

A Gathering Place

Established in 2011, Ghostlight Coffee has become a favorite place for Daytonians to meet...from hosting conversational round tables to helping set up secret proposals, you never know what will happen next or who you will run into at Ghostlight!

There have been big moments, like a couple signing for the first home, and smaller, everyday things, like family coffee and hot chocolate on the morning commute—and we’re grateful to have been a part of each and every one of these moments!
