If itâ€™s too cold to enjoy the great outdoors and you and your sweetheart are going a little stir crazy at home, make a trip to a local eat-in bakery. It’ll be a much-needed break from your usual routine of dining out at your favorite cafe or sports bar. Plus, youâ€™ll be able to keep warm and indulge in some delicious treats at the same time.
Eat-in bakeries will usually seat you, and then a waitress come take your order.Â They typically offer various supplies of coffees, teas and hot chocolates, so youâ€™ll be able to have something to drink as you enjoy your sweet of choice.Â Â Think of tonight as a dessertÂ date.Â Instead of a restaurant that smells like beer and fried food, youâ€™re in a place that holds the tempting aroma of pies and cookies. What could be a better way to spend a snowy winter night?
When you first arrive, take a careful look at the drink and dessert menus; seek out new treats that you think soundÂ temptingÂ and ultimately decide together what youâ€™d like to order.Â Step outside of your comfort zone and order something that you’ve never had before.Â If youâ€™re really in the mood for some sweets, order a second small dessert that you already know youÂ love.Â Relax with a cup of your favorite dessert-esque drink as you andÂ your man chat about your weeks and take in the scent of the sugary bakery.
Consider trying a slice of Mississippi Mud pie with a macchiato or indulge in a piece of appleÂ strudel with a nice, warm hot chocolate. If you’re a chocolate lover, order some brownie or hazelnut cake pops along with a choco-banana frappe or a chocolate cream pie pairedÂ with a dirty chai.
After the desserts arrive, share the treats with each other. Or if you want to indulge in a more private setting, take them to go. Experience a great night filled with delicious pastries, scrumptious drinks and your loving sweetheart!
