This is my go to market when I want that extra touch. The deli and bakery are awesome. Love the chicken salad and those killer brownies!! Yummy. Little more expensive than Kroger but worth it for some things.

They have a great selection in the deli with their many pre-made entrees and side dishes. The varied selection makes it easy to find something that sounds good. Really nice presentation of desserts and pastry and they make a mean "killer" brownie.

Dorothy Lane Market, a locally owned Dayton-area specialty food store, is a mecca for all things foodie. We're not just another grocery store, as each of our delectable departments beg to be experienced, one tasty morsel at a time. At each of our three locations, you'll be able to order food, whether you want it to-go, or you are looking to sit down and enjoy. We also offer a diverse Wine & Beer selection, always featuring new craft beer on tap, and a Coffee & Tea Bar. There's something for everyone, whether you want to enjoy a steak or piece of fresh seafood hot of the grill (just follow your nose to the Meat Dept. for Jack's Grill), a deli sandwich (served hot or cold), favorite deli salads, soups, sushi, Naples-Style Pizza (at our Centerville and Springboro locations), our amazing salad bar, or anything else our store has to offer. When you visit us at DLM-whether you are stopping in to shop or dine-we hope that you are delighted by the food experience and the passionate, knowledgeable people who make it. Visit us and experience DLM for yourself!
