Valentine's Day Dessert Options in Vancouver

The holiday season has just ended but it's now only 2 weeks before it's Valentine's Day. I have gone out to eat dinner with my boyfriend for the past couple of years but I thought I'd skip the dinner recommendations and introduce some other options for Valentine's Day. These dessert joints will be sweet (literally & figuratively ;)) and much lighter on the wallet!

I've selected establishments throughout the city so you can find a great spot near you! Also, all of these places have seating so you can take your time chatting to your loved ones and enjoying these treats.

Zomato- 3.0

This new dessert and champagne bar opened in Gastown and is the hippest place for after dinner. This is the most upscale option in my list. I thought the concept was so unique and would be a romantic spot on Valentine's Day!

On Feb 14th, they will be having a special menu for $38 per person that includes: champagne, cheese plate, raspberry violet, warm chocolate tart, and your choice of chocolate/macaron!

North Burnaby- Hastings and Boundary
Zomato- 4.7

For a blast of the past, check out this ice cream shop with a vintage feel. They specialize in sodas, floats, and sundaes and is one of the best ice cream shops in Vancouver! They open until 8pm on Sunday.

For Valentine's day, they are taking inspiration from Italy and will feature 5 special sundaes that will be available Feb 9-14. Also, check them out on Instagram as they'll be giving away a private dessert for two + a flower bouquet to one lucky couple!

Central Richmond-Westminster & No.3 Road
Zomato- 3.2

This place features different flavors of cheesecakes as well complementing tea with an Asian twist. The restaurant is spacious and quite clean! If you are in the Richmond area, make sure to check out this place. I'm not a fan of New York cheesecakes, so get their mousse cheesecakes which are yummy too!

They will be having a special on February 14th where you can choose any two desserts and two drinks for only $15.75! Sweet deal!

Kitsilano- Broadway and Arbutus
Zomato- 4.4

For a good chat and delicious chocolate and sweets, check out Thomas Haas. The store is not normally open on Sundays but will be open until 530pm on the 14th just to celebrate Valentine's Day!

Do you have Valentine's Day plans already? Do you have any dessert recommendations for me?
