It’s looking like red rose bouquets and heart-shaped chocolates again! Love it or not, the season of love is just around the corner. Get ready to be swept off your feet as you spend this special day with your special someone in one of these special restaurants!

Maggie’s Cafe

There’s nothing better than spending time with the love of your life first thing in the morning! Start your Valentine’s day right by taking your special someone out for a hearty breakfast meal at Maggie’s Cafe in Barrio Logan. 


Work your way to their heart by treating them to a plate of Carnitas Breakfast Skillet made up of mixed bell peppers, onions, potatoes, pico de gallo and carnitas topped with two eggs or a classic California Omelette made up of 3 cage free eggs, spinach, pico de gallo, avocado, and pepper jack cheese served with your choice if sourdough or wheat toast. 


Treat them like royalty by welcoming their day with a king’s breakfast!

VAGA Restaurant & Bar

An exquisite view for an elegant date? You got it at VAGA Restaurant & Bar where you’ll have an amazing date with just you, your special someone, and a picturesque image of the coastline at Encinitas. It’s the perfect place to have a late lunch or early dinner, catching the beautiful sunset while having a delicious meal.


This oceanfront view restaurant will deliver you love letters through the magic of its food fleshed out in breakfast, lunch, brunch, and dinner menus! Try out one of their dinner gluten-free and dairy-free specialties: Beet & Pomegranate Hamachi Crudo with roasted beets, yuzu koshu, local fish, pomegranate, and lime. Have a plate of Fideua & Tempura Squid with fideo, smoked aioli, mushrooms, pepper sofrito for sharing too! 


And lastly, feed the romantic air with one of their signature cocktails called No Place Like Home — a concoction of Absolut Vodka, Plum, Grapefruit, and Caribbean Spices because there is indeed no place like home when you’re in the company of your loved one. 

Jeune et Jolie

Make sure to remind your lover that they’re young and beautiful by taking them for a fancy dinner out at Jeune et Jolie. A taste of oyster, prawn, bay scallop, and mussel made into one Plateau de Fruits de Mer will instantly transport you into the city of love! 


There’s also something about the aesthetic of this restaurant that will give you the vibe of elegance in calmness and harmony. It’s perfect for an intimate heart to heart conversation with a side of Tartare and Poireau. 

Hob Coffee North Park

Catching up with an old flame? A good conversation is always made possible over a cup of coffee. Sway your date with your natural charms with the help of Hob Coffee North Park’s specialty drink made up of organic agave and steamed cinnamon – the Kingslayer. For a sweeter delight, order their Carmel Mountain to get a taste of a delightful buttery, nutty latte topped with a mountain of house made whipped cream and a butter waffle coffee.


The sweetness doesn’t stop there! Ignite the bliss of sweet love with a side of their sweet crepes in blueberry jam and lemon curd or savor the fire of passionate romance with their savory crepes in pesto, artichoke, red peppers, feta, and arugula.
