My husband, Jim, and I stopped in for a treat at trendy Pacchia Express in the historic Oregon District in Dayton Ohio after a routine power walk around the city seeing the sites. We were just wearing shorts and were a little sweaty, but it did not matter — we did not feel out-of-place. Pacchia Express is like a coffee shop annex to their more upscale and trendy Pacchia Restaurant connected to it.
We were impressed by the variety of offerings in the dessert case — all freshly made by their pastry chef. I chose their “summer berry stacker” and “ginger molasses bar”. Both were excellent, out-of-the-ordinary and very reasonably priced at $3 and $2, respectively.
The “summer berry stacker” had a graham cracker crust layered with a lemon cheesecake mixed with strawberries and blueberries and a light cream topping. It was very fresh and light (although not light in calories) and a nice complement to the “ginger molasses bar”. I like the “bar” concept vs the cookie – the bar seems to be more moist and for some reason it seemed more like a special treat.
So if you are cooking at home and just want to get out of the house for a special dessert treat, definitely stop by Pacchia Express. I’ll see you there.
