Sometimes you just want to go where everybody knows your name – and that place is Dash-IN. Here you’ll find all-day breakfast, craft beer, cider, and wine, and a full menu of the best comfort food. Emily – owner, operator, and chef – took over Dash-IN in 2009 and has been creating some of Fort Wayne’s favorite meals since, such as her grilled cheese sandwich with cheddar, bacon, and poached apples, Dash pesto soup, and crab cake salad. Alongside your meal you can enjoy a top-notch glass of beer, which is why you have to be 21 or older to enter.

**Fun fact: Behind the bar, you’ll see an original bottle from the cafe Emily’s grandparents owned in the 1920s.


What are Dash-IN’s hours? Dash-IN is open from Wednesday to Sunday from 9 am – 3 pm, which is the perfect time to enjoy their breakfast, brunch, or lunch menu!

Is there outdoor seating? Yep! Enjoy your meal outside on their seasonal outdoor patio.

Is it wheelchair accessible? Yes! Dash in is easy to get in and very roomy inside. Although there are no accessible seats designated, there are tables that are easily ready to accommodate wheelchair users.
