Tastefully Roasted has shut down its coffee shop inside the Dayton Mall, the retail center's second coffee-shop closing in the last six months.
The locally owned Tastefully Roasted’s remaining location in Oakwood is open and operating. Both locations operated as Saxby’s Coffee shops until transitioning to local ownership in June 2017.

Sales had slowed at the Miami Twp. store; “People don’t go to the Dayton Mall for coffee,” Wilkerson said.
Winans Chocolates + Coffees left its space in front of the Dayton Mall in May after more than a decade in business. The space it vacated was filled quickly by locally owned smoothie and pastry shop Mango Twister.
