While a heart-emblazoned card or cheap candy-toting stuffed animal might say, “Hey, I was thinking about you,” in adequate fashion, why not pull out all the stops with some local, Atlanta flare for this Valentine’s Day?
Your loving pals at Yelp have put together a few romantic sure-fires to make your loved ones “ooh” and “ahh” at your V-Day prowess.
If you’re looking for the perfect collection of truffles and macarons to pair with the dozen roses you just picked up, and also want to sip on one of the most delectable milkshakes you’ve ever had in your life, this is the spot. 1046 N. Highland Ave., Virginia-Highland.
Maison Robert Fine Chocolates
Nothing says “Happy Valentines Day and stuff” like a big box of chocolates. This family-run spot holds down the French chocolate scene just north of Buckhead and keeps the sugar flowing with cookies, cakes, and pastries made in-house. 5256 Peachtree Road.
The Art of Touch
Score a relaxing spa day for your lover or join him/her for a couple’s massage at this fancy Midtown spot. 855 Peachtree St., Suite 2B.
Looking for the right card to pair with that stuffed bear-holding-a-box-of-chocolates? This Westside Provisions shop just became your go-to for all things hilarious with the right amount of personalization… and love, of course. 1170 Howell Mill Road, Suite 104.
If you’re in need of a secluded spot to gaze into your loved one’s eyes while sipping an artfully crafted cocktail, head to this cozy Decatur restaurant. Be sure to check out the dessert menu, too. 340 Church St.
Oysters, French cuisine, romantic atmosphere and a killer cocktail program. This new favorite at Krog Street Market is a home run for anyone planning for St. Valentines Day. Make your reservations now. 99 Krog St., Inman Park.
