Valentine's Day Menu

Treat your special someone to a four-course breakfast-in-bed menu featuring luscious chocolate in every dish.

Double chocolate coffee

Nothing says romance like breakfast-in-bed, right? Maybe… but the thing is, it's not the "in bed" part that makes it romantic. (Don't believe it? Try serving your significant other a bowl of bran cereal for breakfast-in-bed and see how far that gets you.)  What really makes breakfast-in-bed special is the food, which is why we're going to serve not a meal, but an extravaganza, featuring double chocolate coffee, chocolate-stuffed French toast, white chocolate-covered berries and chocolate pastry. Now that says romance!
