It’s no secret that Springfield, Missouri, has an outstanding restaurant scene. In fact, Springfield is rumored to have more restaurants per capita than any other city in the country! With all those restaurants, deciding on a Valentine’s Day date location can be really tough.
Lucky for you, deepsters have been doing the diligent (and delicious) research for months! We narrowed our unique Valentine’s Day date locations to a few of our favorite local restaurants.
For those looking for an unconventional Valentine’s Day destination, the Early Bird Breakfast Pub is Springfield’s first and only Breakfast Pub. With a full-service bar and an extensive menu, you can’t go wrong with brunch and mimosas on a Valentine’s Day date.
From breakfast burritos and eggs benedict to banana pancakes and cookie butter waffles, there is something for everyone at the Early Bird Breakfast Pub. As the saying goes, “the early bird gets the worm,” so be sure to arrive before closing time at 4 pm!
Progressive Pickwick Date
If you’re looking to avoid the Valentine’s Day crowds this holiday, a Progressive Pickwick Date may be the perfect way to celebrate your low-key love a day or two early. This progressive date starts off with a relaxing happy hour at Cherry Picker Package x Fare, a new café serving up The Coffee Ethic coffee, wine and beer on tap. Once you’ve kicked the evening off, head over to Tea Bar & Bites for a charming dinner made with all fresh, local ingredients. Top the night off with your sweetheart and something sweet at Elle’s Patisserie. Elle’s proudly serves up delicious, homemade truffles, ice cream, pastries and more. If the Progressive Pickwick Date sounds like the perfect Valentine’s date for you, remember Tea Bar & Bites is closed on Sundays!
